So I've been to one Salvation Army and had to sort to a whole lot of junk, and found nothing.

By "Wearable", I'm talking about good looking, teenage clothes, with minimum editing.


How's Plato's Closet? Anyone been there? How's that place?

I've been to Plato's closet and they do seem to have a good selection, with decent quality. The prices are slightly higher than they would be at Salvation Army or Goodwill. I've actually found several wearable things at Goodwill. They have a location in Rocky Hill, but my favorite is in Manchester. It's a Super Goodwill so it's larger and has a better selection. You should see all the shoes! If you need directions let me know, I live in the area. Good luck!

Feedback makes me happy

I have found SO many things at that really crappy looking Salvation army in stamford! You really have to look through the junk but i have found some beauties, i even found a vera bradley bag that i sold on ebay for 40 bucks! only paid a dollar for it..
so check out there, but be warned, u do have to "search"

As far as guy's shoes go, I've found decent ones in the Goodwills in Rocky Hill (the Doc Martens shoes I'm wearing now... not the boots, unfortunately) and Glastonbury (Steve Maddens).  Clothing-wise, the Goodwill in Westport has decent stuff too, if not a tad expensive (because it's... well, Westport).  And don't forget the Hamden Salvation Army.

Would a consignment shop do?

I have found the Goodwill thrift store in Torrington to be pretty good. They haven't raised their prices TOO much, like the other ones have. I went to the Goodwill in Bristol, and the prices were absolutely ridiculous. It was just about cheaper to buy new at Wally-world.
