If you had any assumptions that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis skyrocketed sales of used clothing, I am here to give you some bad news. It seems that wearing used fur clothes and onesies are only cool in music videos. Even though “Thrift Shop” is the first independent song to top the Billboard charts in nearly 20 years ( Nelson, 2012), Goodwill has reported that sales have not been significantly different according to International Business Times. I was very surprised when I found this out. I thought that everyone was going to hop on that bandwagon. I guess not knowing where those boxer shorts were last isn’t worth looking “So deamn frosty”. I still believe though that music can indeed influence our shopping decisions.
