It is hard to believe that there are people other than my family and friends reading this blog but apparently there is one ;) Deb is going thrifting with her sister this weekend (lucky!) and wanted to know where I shop. So here goes. These are a few of my favorite places where I seem to have good luck. If anyone has any more to add please do. I split it up by different Richmond areas.
Lakeside Ave (Near Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens) has many thrift stores. Here are some of my faves:
* Pass It On!
Arneda's Thrift and Gift
* Consignment Connection
Robin's Nest Antiques
Whispers of Time
These are all within a mile or two from each other. One stop shopping!
Salvation Army Family Store
Rt. 301 (Chamberlayne Ave)
* Through the Garden Gate Antiques
Rt. 1 (Brook Rd)
* Class and Trash
Southside: (I'm not as familiar with this area but here is a website with a bunch of Midlothian stores http://www.thethriftshopper.com/city/Midlothian/VA/1.htm
* Love of Jesus Thrift
* Midlothian Antiques Center
* Salvation Army
Goodwill (there are two on Broad St.)
I'm sure there are lots more but hopefully this is a good start. I've starred the ones that have a pretty big selection of furniture.
Happy thrifting Deb, and anyone else going out this weekend! Oh, if you are going to be at Goodwill here is a 20% coupon (for VA only) http://tinyurl.com/49zmlb3 . Maybe I will see you there! I'll be the one with the screaming child throwing Cheerios all over the store!
