I am definitely a thrift store lover. I think I got it from my mother as she does most of her shopping there. She definitely kept me from developing that “ew, it’s used” stigma. I love a good thrift store, but I really love a great Kids’ Resale Store. I have saved so much money buying Zander’s furniture, toys & clothes second hand, especially since he outgrows clothes so quickly. And you can sell your old stuff back to them and use the credit/money to buy new stuff!
I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite resale stores. Most of these places are also privately/locally owned, so I love to support fellow small business owners. Of course, my knowledge is limited to where I live (the Mesa/Phoenix area).
If you know of a great store I missed, include it in the comments, I’d love to check it out.
3425 East Baseline Road Suite 105
Gilbert, AZ 85234
1994 N Alma School Road
Chandler, AZ 85224
I got my nursery furniture here for amazing prices and just cleaned them up with a coat of paint. The one in Chandler also has a great selection of maternity clothes for great prices. They have these all over the country, so head to their website and see if they have one in your area!
1720 E. Warner Rd. Suite C-8
N/W Corner Mc Clintock & Warner Rd.
Tempe, AZ 85284
This place is a little smaller, but has amazing clothes. Everything is high quality and name brand, which means prices are not as low as Savers or Goodwill, but you don’t have to dig for great stuff – it’s all great.
10720 E. Southern Ave
Mesa, Arizona 85209
This is a relatively new place and is pretty small, but they have a good selection of toys, clothes and even maternity clothing. One great thing is that they buy your used items and they buy them for fair prices. I went in with a few things and ended up with $80 credit. Oh, and it’s next to Hobby Lobby, which means you can stop in both places on one trip!
Hope you enjoy! I’d love to hear how your shopping goes!
