If you are shopping for back-to-school items or want to freshen up your wardrobe on a budget, you may want to check out your local thrift store.

Thrift stores are filled with a treasure trove for affordable clothing and household items, including many produced by upscale designers.

You definitely may want to browse thrift stores this week because Wednesday is National Thrift Store Day.

To pay tribute to the special occasion and learn more about the bargains that await you at area thrift stores, local fashionista Wendi Braswell and Candyl Eyster with Empath Health's Thrift Shop visited the ABC Action News studio on Sunday to talk about National Thrift Store Day.
