With all the cleanses and upcoming spring cleaning, consignment stores are about to get a wardrobe revamp with “new” items that could bring that ultimate vintage piece right to your fingertips.

Here are some tips to help you dig through the not-so-glamorous items and find that diamond in the rough.

1. Take your time. These pieces may not always be staring you in the face. Look through the racks and don’t rush.

2. Try it on. If you think something has potential, put it on. It might surprise you!

3. Be persistent. You might not find that “wow” item right away. But trust us when we say there’s a lot of thrift stores out there, so don’t throw in the towel.
