I go to thrift shops for, uh, decidedly non-crafty purposes, but the Westport Goodwill's really good.  Same goes for Norwalk and Hamden.  Stamford... eh, the service is less-than-receptive, but sometimes there's good stuff (same deal for Danbury's Goodwill, but it seems like there's a LOT of CD's that are just empty cases).  Also, there's two in Bridgeport.  Ocean Terrace is a regular one, while Boston Avenue (on Route 1) is an outlet, so it's clothes by the pound.

It should be noted the link to all the Goodwills in CT is just the ones owned by Easter Seals Goodwill of New Haven, and not all of them.  There's a bunch owned by Western Connecticut Goodwill.  This link should show all of the Goodwills in CT.  Thanks for the link to all the Salvation Army locations (and thethriftshopper.com), I was looking for something like that.  Cheesy

There is a thrift store called the Yellow Balloon in Darien on the Post Road. It is seasonal and is closed for the summer. Not sure how the prices are during the seasons that they are open, but several years ago I got a designer skirt for $2.00 when they were trying to get rid of their inventory. They only have clothes, though (I think- haven't been there in a while - maybe I will check it out tomorrow!). As someone previously posted, Fairfield County is very expensive. Everyone is now hip to the Goodwills, etc and the prices have really gone up.
Hope that this helps.

there is this adorables (and expensive) vintage store in the center of chester (tiny town near essex and deep river) that sell a on of stuff but is like um maybe 7 by 7 feet and has way to much stuff in it.  ALso in old saybrook there is a amazing kinda big vintage store that sells everything from prom dresses to napkin rings.  It is called Tovas Vintage Shop.  The one in chester is called the willow tree


Pssst: the store next to willow tree sells really cool clothes and *TIARAS*.  ALso there is a really cool bead store in the center of Chester.
