Nifty Thrifty Thursday: Thrift Store Shopping Tips

Once again it's time for Nifty Thrifty Thursday. That's my weekly post including websites for frugal ideas, coupons, freebies and deals.
First, here's some news I heard this week that I thought many of you would find interesting: Thanks to the sinking economy, the thrift-store look is in! More and more teens and young adults are shopping at thrift stores than traditional clothing outlets and it has become the "new look". I heard this on the radio, but here's an article that goes into it a little more. Not only are you saving money, but you're looking good doing it!
In honor of that li'l factoid, I thought I'd post some links to items with a 'thrift store' theme.
EzineArticles.com (whom you can also submit articles to for FREE right now) has a great article on The Secret of Thrift Shopping For eBay Sellers. There are some great tips in that one even if you aren't going to resell the item.
TheThriftShopper.com has a national thrift store directory that will give you maps, hours driving distances and ratings of thrift stores in your area. I think it would be great to use this for wherever you vacation or wherever you visit family and friends as well!
About.com gives some great links for thrift store and yard sale shopping in this posting.
In a former Nifty Thrifty Thursday post, I gave some thrift store shopping tips!
Don't forget about eBay, Zwaggle and Freecycle!
