TL;DR Thrift shopping is trending with people building careers promoting shopping with sustainability
If you didn’t already know…now you know thrifting is in. There are always trends that come and go, but thrifting is vast with the financial climate right now, and it might stay trending, BIG TIME! It’s become so popular, especially among the younger generations, that people are building careers out of it.
For example, Alexa Hollander, known as Alexa Sunshine on YouTube, shares how she makes money thrift shopping and has built her career with sustainable shopping. She has 230,000 subscribers and generally makes between $3,000 and $6,000 monthly from ads on her YouTube videos. In addition, she also receives several offers from brands wanting to work with her and sponsor her videos.
Alexa is just one of the many YouTubers who are a part of the “Thrift With Me” trend, which has surged in the past few years. Videos with thrifting in the title have increased 10x from 2017 to 2019, and we’re sure 2020 will see the same type of industry growth.
