It's a brand new year and when a new year starts I like to start off with a clean slate. For me that means getting rid of clothes I haven't worn in the past year- whether it be shirts I forgot I even had or the pants that I have to finally admit to myself that they don't fit me anymore!

At the beginning of the year, I go through all the clothes in my closet and donate my clothes to local shops. Goodwill is, of course, always a good option. I used to donate my clothes at this shop called "The Discovery Shop" on Hondo Pass-  I also used to do some of my shopping there. It was one of my favorite places to thrift at; then the pandemic happened and the Discovery Shop closed down.

If you're like me and always on the hunt for a great thrift, or a place to get unique items then check out my list of suggestions of vintage and thrift shops to check out in the Borderland this year! Sure, staples like Goodwill, the Salvation Army and Savers are great places to check out but here are some gems you might not (or you might have) heard about:
