Secondhand Shoppers More Likely to Find Success in Love

In honor of Valentine’s Day today, we embarked on a mission to find out if the qualities and personality traits that make a great “thrifter” are linked to the same qualities that make someone successful in love. To find out, we conducted a survey asking about secondhand shopping and dating habits, and discovered that there was a true love connection between those who shop secondhand regularly and those who found success in their love life. In fact, 69% of the most avid thrifters (people who shop 12 times or more per year) stated they’ve found their match in a committed relationship or marriage.

While we know the best secondhand shoppers are pros at discovering that hard-to-find, one-of-a-kind item, we wanted to see if that translated into being able to find the one person who is just right for them in real life. Our Valentine’s Day Survey confirmed our suspicions; secondhand shoppers are diligent, patient and have a good understanding of what they’re looking for, which appears to correlate to their ability to find their perfect partner.

What is it that makes thrifters more likely to unlock the key to love?
