Last night, I went a clothing gemach for the first time. I suppose some people don’t want to go to them for fear of looking like a nebach or a beggar.
Some people have that thrift store phobia too.
Anyway, I went to the gemach and I found 3 suits in my size. Two are good for shabbos, one suit I consider a everyday suit. One suit is a brown wool suit. The second is a navy suit. The last suit is a grey Holt Renfrew suit. I also found a ankle-length skirt. As you may know, finding a long skirt is a challenge because of my long legs. The fact that I found a skirt that actually hits mid-ankle is miraculous. So I managed to find chic items for free.
So what do the fashionistas think of clothing gemachs? Are there good ones in your area? Discuss!
