Find everything fun and affordable at Everyday People

By Tressa Versteeg

Even college kids living in one of the worst U.S. economic climates in quite some time can still afford to spruce up their wardrobes. Everyday People clothing exchange has opened its third store in the Twin Cities. In addition to the locations in Uptown and Dinkytown, there is a new branch about a block west from the Selby-Snelling intersection.The retail at Everyday People is used, but still in good condition-meaning they don’t sell garbage, but their pieces are still affordable. They offer a variety of styles from simple and cozy cardigans to spunky and brightly colored jackets. The prices are pretty reasonable, a range of about $10-$30. Affordable, but not so cheap the inseams fall apart once you leave the store.

If you need a few more winter layers or a new coat to stop the Minnesota chill, there are both men’s and women’s hats, scarves, sweaters, jackets and coats. The hats and scarves are priced around $10, sweaters around $15 and jackets and coats $15-30.

There are also many men’s and women’s shirts, dresses and skirts in eye catching patterns, ranging from $10-$20. Layer them with pants or jeans ($15-$20) and long sleeves for cold weather-wearablity in the deary winter, or save them for the glorious first day of Spring.

Everyday People also has accessories galore-to cover your feet and add some bling to your outfits. The sneakers and dressier shoes for both men and women, normally are priced around $20, and the jewelry and bags hover around $10.

The other perk of Everyday People is the exchange aspect-you can bring in your clothing. If they take it, you can receive 30 percent cash or 50 percent store credit of the price they want to sell it for.

Everyday people is located at 1599 Selby Ave., open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m.- 6 p.m. Visit for more information.
