"Thrifting" or "To Thrift" is a verb used often in the US now, and the act of thrifting is trending among Gen Y and Gen Z youth. Its meaning: to find very good condition used items at a store that specializes in such items, clothing or other unique items, and it can sometimes mean the act of giving an item away to such a store for their profitable gain. Usually the items are not "consignment" where an original owner is looking to realize some money back too. Often the act of thrifting takes place at stores benefiting a particular charity, where donations are given for others to purchase.
It is still rare or absent as a dictionary entry, but I suspect it will enter officially soon. How do we convey this action in French? (My daughter is learning French also, and this would be a subject she would be interested to use for practice, as likely would her class at school.)
Also, how do we convey the related terms:
"thrifter" (this noun is used at both wholesale and retail levels for: one who gathers nice secondhand objects/ clothing for their personal use, and for: one who makes money by finding items to thrift to others)
and "thrift store" (both countable nouns)
