Is it worth value of money to do Charity Shopping?

What does it mean this thing a charity shop?
A Charity Shop is a retail business driven by the charitable union to assist in turning the given articles into cash. Charity Shops are spread all over the world, but they are mostly located in England and the United States. In the United States you will find these kinds of shops under the name of thrift stores. Nowadays thrift Store shopping is very popular in the United States. These shops borrowed their name from the colloquial word ‘thrifting’.

Any culture or any class have their thrift shoppers. Thrifting is an advantage for the poor, the businessmen as well as the wealthy. The poor can afford to buy a good snip; the businessmen get their benefit playing on the difference between the cost price and the selling price, and the wealthy, like to purchase something unique and extraordinary that can’t be found even in the Fifth Avenue or Bond Street.
