well, mostly within the three valleys: Ogden, Orem, and Salt Lake.

Mine would be Zims on 47th and stateish in SLC, and the Piece Goods that was just closed down on 54th s. and 40thish slc. I went to Piece goods right before it closed... so sad Cry But have yet to go to Zims.

Anyone know of any thrift stores in SL that are not Deseret Industeries? I am a cheapy and they keep raising thier prices!

It sounds like a scrap book store. There seem to be millions of those around Utah. Must be a Church sanctioned craft ;p For cool stuff, i found a Japanese store at the Not ZCMI downtown mall. They have the paper stars paper, and the awesomest stuffed Japanese toys. They had this cool chest of drawers with 20 or so little drawers. I told my hubby that I wanted it for my crafts;p Then we looked at the price $9**.** Ouch! Maybe when I win the lotto ... from Idaho ;p

I also get a kick out of Cabin Fever in Crossroads Plaza (a.k.a. the NOT ZCMI downtown mall  Wink )

As for thrift stores, there are a few Salvation Army stores, and Thrift Town stores.  Also, if you are in the Downtown area quite a bit I would hit Grunts & Postures 779 E 300 South. The prices used to be kind of all over the map. Sometimes you could find cool stuff for a great deal, but sometimes things were a little pricey. I haven't been there in quite a while, though.  There also is a place called Decades on State St. between 600 and 700 So. that has some really cool clothes.  I don't know what kind of crafting you do, but there might be a really good chance to find some things to reconstruct in either of those places.

Good luck!

Lollipop Paper isn't a Scrapbook store. It's more like Cabin Fever!

This isn't a thrift OR a craft store, it's a grocery.  But everyone should know about Pirate O's in Draper.

11901 S. 700 E.
Draper, UT 84020

It is all that.

Grunts and Postures is awesome! Another non-D.I. place is Savers...I love them...they have a lot of interesting stuff, although their prices have gone up a bit in the past year. There's also a Zim's downtown that is fun to visit.

Are there any fabric stores you guys could recommend?  JoAnn's and Hancocks are just not cutting it for me.  I am especially looking for small-scale quirky prints, a la Munki Munki.

Piecegoods was so rad! They could have made more money and stayed in business longer if they would have advertised. I mean they were open FOREVER but still.

Pibs Exchange is also a "thrift" type of store Buy/Sell/Trade type shit but a bit overpriced.

here is a whole list of thrifty type of stores in the SLC area

ED'S THRIFT EMPORIUM 120 W 3300 S
Hidden Treasures Thrift S 161 N Main
Penny Pinchers 8455 W 2700 South(magna)
Worn Again 1810 W Fortune Road (around 1350 South)
Swappers Market 427 E 3300 South (indoor swap meet)

I used to work at Piece Goods when I lived in Rexburg, Idaho wanna hear the best part?? It is still open. Wooo Hoooo! There is a craft sale place in front (like quilted bear) now, but they have all of the yards and yards of avocado green ball fringe and fuscia tricot still lingering in the back. I visit Idaho about once a year and I stock up. Do we need to organize a field trip?? It is only 3 hours from SLC J

There's a place that isn't a craft store or anything, but you can get yarn, thread, fabric, tools, paints,paper, and all sorts of other stuff-- including food and clothing and shoes! I haven't been there in a while, but it used to be that prices were so low it was ridiculous, now I think people are catching on.  I once got some 8-hole black Doc's for $29!!!!  I've gotten name-brand acrylic and watercolor paints for less than a buck there, and all sorts of sewing-related stuff.  It's like a "damaged goods" type of store, and its called "Market Square", or NPS.  It's about one street west of Redwood rd, and about 1500 South. If you go to 17th South and Redwood road, it's just a little bit north and west from there.  The only problem is sorting thru alot of stuff that's not so great, and the inventory is never the same, so if you see a really awesome deal....take it!  And then come home and post for all of us SLC-ers to go too!

 Cheesy Hee hee.  That place rocks, huh?  I have not had ANY xtra dough lately and I've been itchin 2 go there to check it out.  Wonder what cool fantastic stuff they have that I can't get. 

didya ever go to food 4 less on Main st. and 3500 S.? I think they closed, but again, I've not had any expendable income for a while so I haven't gone in a long long time.  They were cool - sorta like NPs was about 10-15 yrs ago.  I found some good paints and candles and the like there. Plus random sewing and hardware tings.

Hey, do u happen 2 know when (&where they meet) there's a knitting group in SLC?  I saw that there's a SLC stitch n bitch, but they didn't mention the where & when...
