Used to live in "B-LO" area, currently going to school in Ohio.  As for Thrift etc.  I personally enjoy the basics...Goodwill and Salvation Army.  But as most people know the place to shop if you've got some cash is on Elmwood in Buffalo.  Yes you can find some deals etc., but some of it's upscale.  For vintage finds your first place to start at is obviously Don's Apparel.  Best of Luck!

Im excited that AC Moore came into town to give Joannes a run for their money.

I just moved back to the WNY area and am looking, looking, looking. I frequent the Amvets that is out by the galleria but that is about it. Where is there an AC Moore? And any other suggestions?

AC Moore is in the back of the Target plaza on the Blvd. There is also a location in Hamburg near the McKinley mall area. I like the new amvets by the galleria - they have some nice stuff there  Grin

Welcome back to Buffalo!

Salvation Army in Tonawanda, Niagara Falls.
GoodWill in Niagara Falls (I HATE this store, there is never anything good)
Joanne etc - there's one near McKinley Mall in Hamburg (the best Joannes locally) and one on Niagara Falls BLVD in Amherst (same plaza as Swiss Chalet and Outback)
There's a Joanne's in Niagara Falls too, but I'm not crazy about it.
AC Moore in Amherst(Best Buy/Target Plaza off of Niagara Falls Blvd) and AC Moore in Hamburg (Near Joanne's Etc)
Then you have the independant yarn/fabric stores. Daft Dames in Akron, Ravenlore Yarn in Tonawanda(they have knitting classes on Wednesday) Aurora Sewing Center(E. Aurora and Clarence locations)...
Also there is an upscale yarn shop across the street from the E. Aurora location... they're pricey but have beautiful yarns...
I wish odds n' ends and pleasures and pastimes were still around. I need some really cheap 100% wool yarn and can't find any.
