Instead of perusing the dense, time consuming and old human skin-smelling Goodwill or thrift store, has brought vintage shopping online.

This is a great idea because not only does it have the potential to be the most efficient way to pick up your vintage threads, you're also contributing to a charity of your choice while doing so. On the supply side, if you have those 5-inch neon pumps you immediately regretted after purchase, instead of rotting like roadkill in your closet you can donate them to your choice charity. The items are exactly the same as IRL thrift stores with a range of gadgets, DVDs, electronics, sports equipment etc. You set the price of their value and whoever buys will have their money donated. You in return will receive a tax deductible receipt and the feeling of warmth of spring air and birdies flying around your heart from your goodwill. Winning!

While there are only four charities available to donate to now for your vintage shopping online urges, is a great new endeavor that I look forward to seeing it grow wings and fly away with awesomeness. With a bit of a marketing and website tweak, the potential is there to capture the hearts of hipster vintage vultures everywhere, and make the world of digital shopping an even more affordable place.
