Favorite Consignment & Thrift Stores

Hello friends. It's way too long since I've seen this space. I have so many things I want to write about and share with you, but there just isn't enough time in the day to do it all.

Today I'd like to share with you a few of my favorite consignment stores. Let me first say that I buy 90 percent of my clothing used. If I do buy something new it is either skinny jeans (so hard to find used), white tank tops, undergarments, and bathing suits. Everything else...used.

For example yesterday I went to Savers in Framingham, MA (like a Goodwill) and bought the following:

Crewcuts dress - girls
Vintage tablecloth
wooden salad utensils
2 mason jars
kids klean kanteen
Corkey Kids dress
LL Bean kids robe
Toms ballet flats
Hanna Anderson tights
Old Navy jean dress - girls
Gap jeans
J Brand jeans
NWT Tommy Bahama swim trunks
Cynthia Rowley sweater
J Jill sweater
sweater with missing tag
Cobb Hill sandals
Anthropology throw blanket

total spent - $83

This is my normal. I LOVE thrifting. Ok, so the moral of this story is if you think you won't find anything good, I promise you that you will. You need to be patient. You need to go WHEN YOU HAVE TIME TO LOOK. I went yesterday because Paige was off school and so I wouldn't be rushing for Pre-school pickup. I took some snacks for her and the iPad (treat for her) and we shopped for two hours. Ok, here's my list. I encourage you all to look up some shops in your area, meet up with a friend and hunt for treasures together.

*these two stores are worth the drive for a day of shopping if you are within a few hours

Wee Sale Kids Consignment Sale
This is actually a giant kids sale that happens twice a year, it is not a store. BUT I highly recommend going if you need baby or kid cloths, toys, etc. IT IS AMAZING.

Goodwill Superstore
various locations across MD - I have been to the Annapolis and Salisbury locations and always find fun things.

Rhode Island

193 Water Street
Warren, RI 02885
*this store is all name brand, high end consignment

Second Helpings Thrift Store
This store is a mix of antiques and vintage. Next door is a women's consignment shop (Thirds Resale Shop), and next door to that is a children's consignment shop (Just Ducky), so it's a fun place to spend a few hours. I've found cool chairs and wooden crates at this shop.
32 Gooding Avenue, Bristol, RI

Savers Thrift Store
I have been to the Providence location and did well. There are locations throughout the state.


Savers Thrift Store
I have been to the Framingham always find so many awesome things. There are locations throughout the state.

Chic to Chic

THIS STORE IS AWESOME. All the things are organized by color, size, and STORE. I've consigned here and bought many high-end finds. Highly recommend. 

Children's Orchard
196 E. Main Street, Route 16

*I rarely find things for my son here, but I always find things for my daughter, it's hit or miss

Happy Shopping!
