Shopping in Duluth

I find it no surprise that my mom needs to do some last minute gift-shopping for the many members of our family. So, we woke up and decided to take a trip to the Miller Hill Mall, TJ Maxx, and Best Buy in Duluth. TJ Maxx and Best Buy are both in a shopping center. I think it’s called Burning Tree Plaza. There are several stores in this section including David’s Bridal, Game Stop, the Dollar Store, Hancock Fabrics, Dunhams, and even some restaurants like Osaka. There is also a Plato’s Closet. Plato’s buys gently used clothes and then re-sells them at an extremely low price. I had never shopped or sold anything there before, but I had some clothes I wanted to get rid of, so I decided I would sell them to Plato’s and see if I could get some money back. I typically donate any clothes that I don’t want, but this time I decided to try it out. I didn’t really get too much money for my clothes. Less than $20 and I had 7 items and two of them were really nice PINK sweatshirts. But, that’s okay! I shopped around for a little bit there, too. There are actually some incredibly cute clothes that one could get for cheap. Some of them still had the original tags on them. I think I might make it a New Years Resolution to shop there more often rather than always buying new clothes. The clothes there were cute, and way cheaper; so, I will still be fashionable, but my wallet will be much fuller! Who knows if I will stick to it, but it is something to think about that I didn’t know about before. I don’t think I will sell clothes to them anymore just because I like donating them for free to people who really need and cannot afford clothes. But, overall, it was a good experience and I discovered a new store I might have to shop in. I can’t believe I have lived around here my whole life and never stepped foot into it before!
