To develop your own style, you must think outside the box: you've got to learn how to sew, develop mad thrift store shopping skills, patronize a local vintage shop (to take advantage of someone else's thrifting skills), or a combination of all these things. Whichever route you choose, the Milwaukee vintage and thrift store scene can definitely provide you with the opportunity to let your imagination run wild.

    Milwaukee Vintage Shops

    To some shoppers there is nothing better than the thrill of the hunt. And while the owners of many of these shops have already scoured the mega thrift-stores for clothing of at least some sort of appeal or quality, you can still spend many an hour sifting through racks of garments to find something suitably chic. It's not for everyone, but those who love vintage shops would probably prefer it that way anyway.

    Not everyone has money to throw away on couture, hence the beauty of the thrift store. At a thrift store -- if you are willing to rummage through piles of sometimes questionable attire -- you can sometimes find that couture with an amazing $5 price tag. And it goes far beyond clothes. These Milwaukee-area thrift stores can outfit your whole home with whatever you may possibly need.
