Thrifster - a real word in the Urban Dictionary!

Thrifster - a real word in the Urban Dictionary! 15 September 2013

As per the Urban Dictionary, August 10, 2013 Urban Word of the Day

An off-shoot (or sub-culture) of the general hipster trend, but while most contemporary hipsters attempt

to buy indie flavor by frequenting Urban Outfitters or American Apparel, a "thriftster" alternatively obtains said style by frequenting thrift stores or through general use of hand-me-downs. While shopping at the Salvation Army may have been included in the original definition of a "hipster," now that mainstream commercialism has caught onto the hipster fashion trends, the term "thriftster" must be adopted to differentiate those who appreciate used clothing and the ideals that come along with it from the ever-increasing group of trendy 20 and 30-somethings who are content to buy the massed-produced version of this clothing without asking how it got to be there in the first place.

"Linda, I love those thick-rimmed 50s-style glasses you're wearing! And you said you're not a hipster. Actually, now that I think about it, I think I just saw those at Wal-Mart." "Actually, Chloe, I found these in my grandma's attic. Aren't they awesome? I was putting back her Christmas decorations." "Ah! Jealous - you definitely need to teach me your thriftster talents."
