Sarasota is a shopping destination for locals and tourists alike. With St. Armands Circle, The Ellenton Premium Outlets and Westfield Southgate Mall, it can be hard to find cute clothing for a steal. 

If you’re looking to get a bang for your buck, try a thrift store. I have a friend that ONLY shops at thrift stores and she has the cutest wardrobe. From business casual wear to brunch outfits, she can find it all by spending a few hours browsing through thrift shops.
