A little late, but I just saw this post for the first time.

Thrift stores: Goodwill (Park Ave), Salvation Army(Cambridge St), and Savers (Park Ave, I think.  It's right between Goodwill and SA).  I like savers the best.  It's relatively new and the things in there are nice.

Art supply places: CC Lowell (Park Ave).  That is the only indepent place I can think of off the top of my head.  There are a few Michaels, but none specifically in Worcester.

Dollar Stores: There are a ton.  My favorite is in the Fair Plaza on Southwest Cutoff.  It's next to Price Chopper.

Other nice stores/places: Jellys (music store, Park Ave), That's Entertainment (comic book store, Park Ave, right next to Jellys), The Living Earth (awesome health food store, I love it there.  Park Ave, relatively close to Jellys), Tortilla Sams(Mexican restaurant, on Highland Street, off of Park Ave).

So your best bet seems to be Park Ave.

It's kind of funny that there was only one response to this.  Sadly, that list does comprise all of the interesting places I would list in Worcester, the second-biggest city in New England (after Boston).  Except you forgot the art museum!
