Vulture reports that Oxygen has a new reality TV show in the works that will revolve around the concept of "thrifting." Via a press release, Thrift Wars will provide an "outrageous and entertaining look at New York's leading and most hardcore thrifters ... as they scour the city for the hottest vintage clothing and accessories—and try to make a profit."
