There are some awesome thrifts in Laurel MD - there is a Village thrift on 198 just beyond the intersection of 197 in Laurel, on 450 in Lanham there is a Value village.  There is a Value Village in suitland across from Andrews airforce base. There is also a Value Village in Clinton off of Branch Ave.

I have a national directory of charity thrift shops that I hope you'll find useful.

My favorite thrift stores in Northern Virginia are:

Yesterday's Rose on Main Street (9960 main street in Fairfax): I have found so many great clothes here, tons of furniture, suitcases... I make sure I go every time I visit my parents.  I have been going there since I was 12 or so Smiley  Also they have special deals: Thrifty Tuesday and Thrifty Thursday... one day is 50% all clothes, one is 50% off housewares and the like

Salvation Army (6528 Little River Turnpike in Alexandria): I have found lots of great clothes here, but more importantly, I got some of my favorite vintage shoes are from here!  I wear a 10, but I still manage to walk away with at least a pair each time.

I think Yesterday's Rose does half off clothes on mondays.
Smiley Leave it to craftsters to go to a thrift store to buy things when they're half off. I'll be talking to a friend and tell them its half off clothes at the thrift store, and they all think I'm cheap, haha.

I recently read an article in a university paper about thrifting and found the following recommendations (granted, it was Georgetown's paper, so they might be more expensive than I imagine, but the author seemed down-to-earth?)

Adams Morgan:
Junction Vintage (on U St.), Meeps (already mentioned), and Smash!Records

Georgia Avenue:
L&N Thrift (supposedly a little cluttered), and Georgia Ave. Thrift Store (highly recommended in the article for an assortment of items and cheap prices)

M St: Annie Cream Cheese  (This is the only one I've been to. It's more vintage than thrift, if you ask me.  Not specifically cheap but neat stuff.)

Hope this helps!

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.

Snoopenda, yes, the Mustard Seed is right off the Bethesda metro stop. Once you exit the station (through the elevator, not escalator), you turn right, walk a block, and the store is on your left. They have a really awesome selection of second hand clothing and shoes, and it's super cheap, like $6 or $7 for a really cute top. They have men's clothes, too, though not nearly as much as the women's selection of course. They also have a rack or two of vintage stuff--mostly old housedresses and bright summer dresses. Last but not least they have local designers jewelry and newer clothing (which can be pricey, but very cute, too).

And if you're looking to sell back some clothes, be warned. They only take clothes in exceptional condition. One tiny hole, stain, or fade and they'll throw it back at you. Also, since the clothes are so cheap, you get no more than $5 per item you sell (at most, in my experience). But overall, the place is great and you can do some serious shopping for only $50.

And my ultimate recommendation would be the Georgia Ave Thrift Store on....Georgia Ave, about 2 or 3 miles north of Columbia Heights. I forget which bus goes there, but it will drop you off right in front of the place. HUGE selection of clothing, books, homes stuff, etc. Also, they sell bundles of scrap fabric for $1 or $2 a pop. It's heaven for crafters!

Being a Marlyander and working off of 16th and L I know the frustration of sometimes not knowing where the closest consignment, re-sale/thrift shops are so I put together a directory for all of us and have an iPhone application coming soon for you savvy shoppers.
