Does anyone know of any thrift stores in Middlesex County that sell more than just clothes? I've read so many posts on craftster where all you guys find books & even furniture in thrift stores...those don't seem to exist by me!

Not sure where you are, but there is a Goodwill in New Brunswick somewhere.  They usually carry everything from furniture, to electronics to clothing. 

There's also a thrift shop in North Plainfield...can't remember the name, but it's in the same plaza as Baja Fresh, I think.  US Thrift or something like that.

St. Peter's church in Spotswood has a thrift shop.  Here's a link: http://www.stpetersspotswood.org/Thrift%20Shop.htm

The good will that was spoken of is in East Brunswick on Route 18 (I do believe it is south, past the chili's and sams and stuff)... Its in the same shopping complex as an all you can eat sushi place (which is quite tasty, good for lunch).  It has clothing, videos, books, and "household goods".  The house hold goods section usually isn't good for furniture (though occasionally they have some), however they have awesome glasses/dishwear/picture frames/other stuff that is good for crafting.  I actually got really cheap yarn there the last time i went and a vintage train case the time before that!!

Otherwise.. there is a small church thrift shop in highland park on route 27 that the second reformed church has.. its really tiny but items are realllly cheap.

Good luck, I hope more ppl post suggestions so I can figure out some more thrift options!
