It's "CHIC" to shop second hand

At Everybody's, a Manhattan secondhand shop, clerks are becoming used to hordes of shoppers stampeding through the doors each Thursday—the day a fresh supply of items goes on sale. Business has been so good lately at the Junior League Bargain Tree in Portland, Ore., that the store closed down one Saturday for lack of merchandise. At the flea market on the grounds of Miami's Tropicaire Drive-In Theater, stalls are booked an unprecedented two weeks in advance. The latest trend in shopping, apparently, is the shift to thrift.
