Hoo boy, I live right around Charlotte and love to thrift!  There's a really good thrift store (called Community Thrift Store, I think) on Freedom Dr, and I think there's a Goodwill outlet and a Value Village right near there.  There are goodwills at Exit 18 (off Harris Blvd), 33 (in Mooresville) and 28 (in Huntersville) off of I-77.  There's also a Consignment store and another goodwill off 49, minutes from the UNCC campus, but I've never been to those.

Any of the Salvation Armys are good for about everything but furniture (way way expensive); Hong Kong on central has vintage clothing (more expensive than goodwill, but great selection, and you can find some incredible stuff) and along the same lines is Dig Dugs on Pecan.
There is also a value village on central and one on south (another goodwill close to the one on south)
i always have great luck at value village.
Clines Antiques way out 49 past Concord (and then some) is AWESOME.  its a big ol' farm where you park outside the gated area and wander around picking out of piles and piles of junk.  take it up to Mr Cline (he's always outside wandering around) and he'll tell you the price.  you can haggle him down a bit, the true antiques are really expensive, but the other stuff isn't.  i got a big plastic jesus last week for $3 and turned it into a planter in my garden.

If you turn just after the Waffle House on the left (I think), and drive down till you get to Home Depot, they are to the left before you get to the last driveway to Home Depot.  Home Depot is on the right though where as The Goodwill is on the left.

There are several over on Freedom Drive - one is even a "last chance" Goodwill outlet. You have to really dig, but you can find some cool stuff there. I found an old Herb Alpert album (the famous one with the whipped cream cover art) that I made into a record bowl and birthday card, and my husband found a cool old airline jacket. Anytime you can buy clothing by the pound, you know you're going to have a good time  Wink

i know i am digging up an old thread but i just found a good "new to me" thrift shop:
http://www.guardianangelthrift.org/
it is right near the corner of Westinghouse with S.Tryon.  I didn't even know about it until last weekend but they said it has been there 2 yrs.  Prices vary wildly but you can find cheap stuff and it has a better organization than some, for ex. there is a crafts section!!

Currently debating which is more wonderful, this one or:
http://www.charlotte.assistanceleague.org/ps.thriftshop.cfm?ID=31
(while you're on Tryon St...!)

or of course the value village.
i like the S.Blvd Value Village better than the Central Ave one, mainly because i always get lost trying to find central ave  Roll Eyes

they moved this one.  it's in almost the same location but now a little (like less than a block) further back, next to the... BiLo?  FoodLion? whatever supermarket is behind where it used to be.

And i think the DIY store across the street is a Lowes, not a HD, but whatever.

Yup, they did move that good will. It's off Johnston Rd. now in the same shopping center as the Food Lion. I haven't been to the guardian angel place, it sounds promising!

Also, has anyone been to the Habitat for Humanity reStore recently? Is it just me, or have their prices gone up significantly in the past year?
