Thrift Stores: Unusual Secondhand Shops Worth Visiting

Posted: Updated:

Love it or hate it, large, nationwide thrift stores like the Salvation Army and Goodwill can be a treasure trove for decor finds (especially with our shopping secrets!), but when you're on the hunt for something a little more particular, their sea of merchandise offerings can be overwhelming. In such times, and keeping our useful readers' thrift-store shopping tips in mind, consider product-specific thrift or resale stores. Not only do you have a greater chance of coming across the perfect find, but many resale and secondhand stores donate large portions of their profits to charities and non-profit organizations. Plus, you'll be surprised at what type of items can fill a whole store.

From recycled pet supplies to fully sprouted plants, flip through the slideshow below to find unique thrift stores dedicated to unusual but necessary things.
