Hey I just found this site http://www.thethriftshopper.com/

Just type in the zip code & it will list all the thrift stores in that area.
Dangerous, but very helpful

I can't believe that after all of my years as a professional thrift shopper that I haven't ever seen this website! I am planning a move to the mid-west soon and this will come in handy on my way across the country. We are planning on driving (from southern California to Ohio) and I can't help but hope that my sweetie will let me make a few pit stops along the way. If it were just me then I would plan the whole route around tourist traps and thrift stores with a big u-haul hitched behind my truck. One can dream, right?

I love that website, too!  I sent in a bunch of stores that weren't listed in my area on there and they were so thankful!

A shame it isn't international. Eastern Canada has some great thrift shops (mainly clothes) - called  Frenchys.

cool resource!  few of the spots in my town were posted, but there's plenty in the city I'm moving back to--which is funny, cause I lived there for ten years and had no idea.  This thrifting thing is only a recent phenomenon in my life but OH have I saved a lot of money, and I get great stuff.  Thanks for sharing!

Awesome, thanks for the link.

I love thrift stores. I used to frequent yard sales every weekend, but they seem to be slowly falling out of favor.

Anybody interested in finding local bead stores can check out our site, we have a locator very similar to this one:

Cheers! I spent my entire childhood being the daughter of a military father. It's quite a wild ride ... but worth it! Best of luck!

Oh, and thanks so much for the website. Bookmarking it now!

I love this site and use it whenever traveling.  Everyone laughs at me since when we go on trips, I have binder and one of the things that are listed, are thrifts stores in every town that we are passing through.  Don't forget to go back to the site after visiting the stores you get the names of from there and rate them.  I find the rating part helpful, since that will determine whether I drive way far out of the way or not.
