Meeps is way overpriced.  I'm not such a fan.  Same with Nana's, which is right down the street. 

Good if you like vintage clothes and don't mind paying a premium for them. 

If you want good thrift though, you have to go to the suburbs.

I don't really like vintage clothes, but i do like their accessories. (cards, earrings) I think i may try making one of those tie cuffs they have on there...  Smiley

Tie cuffs?  You mean, a necktie that is worn as a bracelet?

My old (EVIL) roommate used to work there, and I make and sell wrist ties online as well as at a local market.  I gave her one as a present, and I'd be willing to bet she took it in and showed them, and instead of giving me the commissioned work, they probably just had an employee hack off a bunch of nasty old ties.

actually, i usually end up at meeps when i need a little inspiration/funkiness...don't get too much of that in the burbs unless it's a consignment store. New to You is okay (consignment store in Falls Church) http://www.newtoyou.net/index.asp

My favorite thrift store in the area is Value Village in Langley Park -- it's HUGE, very cheap, and always has something good (clothes, home decoration stuff, boxes, bedding, books, games...).  It's not easy to get to by Metro, but it's easy with a car -- it's just on 193 between Riggs Road and the university.  There's also a medium-sized Salvation Army near there, on New Hampshire Ave. just south of the 193/NH Ave. intersection. 

My favorite secondhand store is Glad Rags in Takoma Park (Carroll Ave. and Ethan Allen Ave.), but it isn't particularly cheap.  However, they have great stuff, and they sell crafty jewelry -- Jody might be amenable to taking work on consignment.


yesss i agree with all of this!

Wagging Tails in Rockville (benefits Mountgomery County animal shelter).  Excellent stuff!
