Series Idea

Our blogger Holyoke Home had an insanely awesome idea for a series on the blog. City Thrift Guides!


I'm definitely going to do one for Seattle and possibly the Bay Area of California (where I just moved from). I could probably do ones for where I lived in Florida and New York as well.

I'd like to invite everyone to do one, even if they're are duplicate cities...who knows you may have a special store your neighbor doesn't know about (please use the above graphic in your guide).

I'll link them in the sidebar as well because it'll be such a valuable resource.

In the meantime check out these great tools. The first is the Yard Sale Mapper app which uses your location to find yard sales in your hood and TheThriftShopper.com a site that lists thrift stores, consignment shops, charity shops etc in your area.

There's also some apps for the TomTom as well. I have one on mine that shows me where all the Goodwills are in my area.
