While some find the idea of digging through old clothes less than ideal, the thrifting infographic showcases the benefits of second-hand shopping. Although the popularity of vintage shopping has grown on average 7% each year, only 18% of Americans thrift at least once a year.

Thrift shops also offer DIY queens a stockpile of possibilities for unleashing creative crafting innovations onto.
