Welcome to World Thrift.
It's in the name. We scour thrift stores and bargain bins, local and worldwide with one goal in mind: We want to bring you affordable styles from around the world, right to your doorstep. Like knowing where your food comes from, we want you to know where we discovered our products, whether its Florida, New York, California, Germany or Italy.
If your passion is fashion, you've come to the right place.
Founders Alessandro and Nicholas met years ago at their old bus stop in middle school. Back then, Nicholas was the quiet one, standing on the crowded patch of grass, surrounded by other kids who all seemed to know each other. With a little encouragement from his mom, Alessandro went to talk to Nicholas. They've been friends ever since. Now, 13 years later, not much has changed--except Nicholas talks too much and World Thrift was born (est. 2017).
