      My husband and I had the idea to do a thrifting road trip for our 10 year anniversary. Of course we can’t go everywhere, so I want to see if you have any spots you think are must. I want to get a map started!

        no recommendations—just here to say that the two of you look so much alike! I really believe that after much time together, couples start to look alike. very nice photo.

          Not your traditional thrift store per say but along the same lines is Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro AL. They get items when they go unclaimed at an airline’s baggage claim.

            You should look up the 100 mile yard sale! It happens every year. I’ve never been but people have told me it is great!

              What a fun and fantastic idea! The only thing is I’d need a U-Haul to bring everything home.

                What state do you live in?

                There are lots and lots of thrift stores all around the Atlanta area. Most are reasonably priced. There’s one in Peach Tree City called Clothes Less Traveled but have many other things besides clothes.

                Also, a lot of Amazon return stores!

                  My favorite is “Unique” outside DC in Silver Spring MD. It’s huge. That’s my go to place when I visit family in the area.

                    I’m very jealous of this trip.

                    However I have to say my other 1/2 and I travel a lot in New England and we always look for thrift stores and have been known to revisit places based on thrift stores.

                      Texas Thrift.

                      I’ve only ever been to them in South Texas, so I’m unsure if they are all over Texas, but well laid out, lots of room.

                        The 127 Yard Sale is an annual event that takes place the first Thursday-Sunday in August each year. It’s literally, The World’s Longest Yard Sale! The route spans 6 states (Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama) and is 690 miles long.

                        As I mentioned, the World’s Longest Yard sale begins in Gadsden, AL at Noccalula Falls Park.

                        It ends 5 miles north of Addison, Michigan or you can start in Michigan and end in Alabama.

                            Deseret Industries in Chandler? Arizona, right outside Mesa. We literally thought we were walking into a Ross and the prices are AMAZING. Dressing rooms, clean & organized, water fountains even!!

                              Lots of high end thrift stores on Cape Cod MA. Harwich and Chatham . If you get to one there is a map of thrift shops in the area you can get.

                                Love the Arc Thrift stores in the Denver area.

                                They had 50% off senior day each week and special days like 99 cent sweater day.

                                Moved from the area so I hope they’re still running their special days.

                                  I go to thrift stores where where I travel! So where are you wanting to travel then just Google search thrift store you’ll find great ones!

                                    The HUB in challis Idaho. Small but VERY low prices, run by volunteers and the $$ is put directly back into the community

                                    Also it right off highway 93 which runs along the salmon river surrounded by mountains. Makes for a gorgeous drive. Hope you have a great trip!

                                      When our girls were little we would drive from New Jersey to Orlando, Florida and stopped at a ton of thrift stores all of the way down. Found great stuff and had a great time.

                                      Maybe take in all of the thrift stores on you way to a weekend destination.

                                      Happy Anniversary.

                                        I wouldn’t say it’s worth it as a destination, but if you happen to be driving near southwest Indiana, I love going to the thrift store by the evansville rescue mission!

                                        They have a coffee shop attached, and all profit goes to a local homeless charity.

                                        It’s also part of a mall, and they’re currently building a goodwill where sears used to be, and they should be open by your trip.

                                          The Port Orange United Church of Christ Thrift Store in Port Orange, Florida is incredible. The prices are so low. Most clothes are 50 cents. A few are as high as $4 max. There’s very little over $5, mostly furniture type items. Amazing!

                                          They get a lot of items when families are cleaning out a parents’s home. I’m amazed at the volume of items sold every day.

                                          They pride themselves in the lowest prices around..

                                            Quad Cities (Iowa/Illinois) has SO many thrift and antique stores. They’re all close to each other which makes it fun for a day of shopping. Leclaire, IA is great too and prices aren’t bad!!!

                                              My husband I did a trip like this in March. We went to all the goodwill outlets to are destination. We ended up going to 4 or 5. It was fun.

                                                Sounds like so much fun! One year for my birthday my hubby and I spent 3 days hitting up all the Louisville and Lexington (KY) thrift stores. We really didn’t spend a lot but we had a lot of fun!

                                                #95253 Reply

                                                  I’m a little distracted by the matching glasses and all. But what an excellent fun idea. I hope you just have a budget.

                                                  I live in Texas I don’t find good thrift stores here. I have a friend in Indiana that says they have nice ones.

                                                  Where are you starting and how many states or places are you going to drive to? What are I interested in looking at most?

                                                    Hilton Head, SC has quite a few thrift stores. If you go to one they’ll give you a map to the others. People (usually wealthy) retire there and when they pass, their kids donate their clothes.

                                                    Most of my Chicos pieces came from Hilton Head thrift stores for pennies on the dollar.

                                                      My favorite ones are the charity type ones. They have low prices and the money goes for various charities. Low prices and special sales. I went to one recently that had all kids clothes on special for 25 cents each. It was a one day sale.

                                                      Look up thrift stores in the areas that you would like to go to.

                                                        Habitat for Humanity Restore in Aberdeen, NC. It is a town right next to the golf resort town of Pinehurst.

                                                        There are plenty of high quality items to be found that were donated by the affluent and generous people who live there.

                                                          Utah had these places called dessert industries. They are all over. I always spent hours in every single one. Worth going to a few imo.
