Hey, we're visiting Ithica way more often than we'd like for car troubles.  Does anyone know any cool, cheap vintage stops around there?  Even just cheap craft stores.  Also things around Elmira would be muecho apriciated.

AH! I live in horseheads (it's right next to elmira).  If you are looking for anything cool in Ithaca just head right over to the commons. I personally love the Tibet store (it's not really vintage or anything, but just inexpensive but nice jewerly, scarves etc.) it's kind of across from evolution. Also there's Trader  K's which is good if you need to sell some clothes- though they can be a little overpriced so be sure to check out the sales (if they are having one) first. In elmira there is also the volunteers of america- which is a thrift store on sullivan street. i'm trying to think of anything else, but i can't really think of any cheap craft stores. Hope i helped Smiley

hello hello!!!

First, go to the new Salvation Army.  It's on Rt 13 by the Home Depot.  AWESOME place.  That's all I can say.  You can get really sweet CHEAP good quality stuff that the college kids give away.

Next, go to the Commons.  There's Evolution and Trader Ks and Jabberwock.  Also Now You're Cooking if your a kitchen nutso like I am.  Honestly, the artisan stores on the Commons are nice, but the stuff is  WAAAAY overpriced and as a craftster, I'm sure that you can do better.

Also, on the east end of the Commons (it's actually on East State Street by AltaSpa) there's a knitting store that has a really cute name which is escaping me for the moment...  grrr...  can't remember.  Go there anyway.

If you're around in mid-August, there's a Dump-N-Run sale where Cornell sells all of the stuff that the students leave behind for charity.  The sale was just two weeks ago, but mark your calendar for next year, cause you can get LOTS of crap for real cheap.  This year, I got a garbage bag full of sheets and pillow cases to salvage for cloth for curtains and table cloths etc for TEN BUCKS.  Very good deal.  Pennies for the yard.

There's also a Big Lots up by the Pyramid Mall (as well as a JoAnn Fabrics and an A.C. Moore, neither of which I go to that frequently) and there's a Michael's down by Wegman's.

There's a place called Habitat which is also down by Wegman's, if you've got cash to spend then that place will keep you busy.  It's owned by an Ithacan and it's got lots of high-end stuff...  and dirty girl toiletries:-)

That should keep you busy for a while!  If you've only got time for one place, head to the Salvation Army.  At the very least, you can get records for record bowls--fifty cents a pop.
