Someone that religiously shops at Thrift Stores looking for bargains and often scores amazing deals. Often dedicated to recycling and reuse of products to keep our planet "greener".
"I'm a real fan of Thrift Stores. They call me a Thrifter, but in a good way! It's amazing the deals you can find. I found a beautiful designer handbag at one last week for $8.00!! Thrifting is my life - and reusing instead of throwing everything away is better for our environment"

A Thrifter is a low level player, or opportunist. In a broader sense, a thrifter is a purveyor of second-hand pleasures.

Based on the Jim Thompson novel and 90's film adaptation, "The Grifters," a thrifter is anyone who makes a living by scoring objects of worth from Grannie's yard-sale (i.e. suckers) and reselling them on Ebay or a Flea Market at a huge profit. True thrifters live in second-hand style, rocking used clothes, furniture, music, books, etc. Conversely, thrifter may also be used as a compliment.

Die-hard Thrifters end up owning boutiques, peddling antiques, old records, vintage clothing, or graduate to become pickers for Crate and Barrel, Urban Outfitters, etc.

Thrifters may ultimately learn a trade and become clothing designers ripping off designs from old clothing, or documentary directors, thrifting the pain and suffering of others for their own benefit.
Mom, that thrifter you gave my comics to has my X-men #64 up on Ebay for 500 bucks!

Molly Rigwald's character in "Pretty in Pink" is a total proto-thrifter.

That was a thrifter move, ganking my ideas for your TV pilot, and then sicking your lawyer on me when I complained. Thanks.

Katy Perry is a saucy little thrifter, i like how she rocks an up-do.
