I'm moving down to the main line area this Friday. I'll be sure to be on the lookout. One of my passions Smiley  Which section of the burbs are you looking for?

I have been in years but as I recall the Bryn Mawr Hospital Thrift Store is really good.  My friend was there about 2 years ago and she said it is still very good.  Only thing is I think (don't know for sure) they close for the summer.  Also, I remember my mom and I taking SEPTA there.

Some is passed off as vintage, some not. It's a great store though with really good prices.

i go to two GREAT thrift stores.

one's called family thrift on girard and broad (yes, it's a sketchy area of philly, but i live there, and it's...kind of....nice....in the day time).  it's huge and everything is cheap cheap cheap.  they've got clothing, housewares, and tons of linens that you can reuse as various fabrics.

i also go to circle thrift (www.circlethrift.com) in fishtown.  they've got a really big craft section, due to me.   yes, i'm being snobby, but i used to flirt all the time with the super cute chubby guy that works there and he ended up making a bigger craft section.  if you ask, they also have a huge pile of stuff you can go through in the back room.

oh, and circle thrift is located next to a great cafe called rocket cat cafe.

I'm currently attending Eastern University in St. Davids along the Main Line and I've had a rough time finding thrift stores that are really decent.

Someone already mentioned Circle Thrift but here's the website incase anyone needs directions. 
http://www.circlethrift.com/  Their hours and other info is available there.

..of course I'm partial since I go to Circle of Hope East which is upstairs above the shop.

Oh and props to the Rocket Cat too!
