The following will be somewhat unhelpful:

When I was a small kid, about fifteen years ago, I lived in Pompton Lakes, and there was a Salvation Army store there.

Looks like it's still there:


But you might want to seriously consider the fact that the Salvation Army is a discriminatory fundamentalist Christian church. Just saying.

Hi soclosetostars -

Here's a few - I live in near northern Passaic/Bergen county, so these might be a little far for you, but if you make a day of it, you could hit a few.

Treasures - run by SOS (Save our Sisters shelter)
196 Lincoln Ave, West Milford, NJ

Treasures II - also run by SOS
90 West Oakland Ave, Oakland, NJ

Second Mile Shop of Midvale United Methodist Church
490 Ringwood Ave
Wanaque, NJ
They have very limited hours, so you might want to call them ahead of time.

Chilton Hospital Auxiliary
38 Hamburg Tpke.
Riverdale, NJ

I know of 2 in Montclair - haven't been that way in a while, so not sure if they are still there.

St. Lukes 2nd time Around
73 South Fullerton

Center for Hospice Care Thrift Shop
51 North Fullerton

The Salvation Army is still in Pompton Lakes, sometimes good stuff, sometimes not. I've been finding I have more luck at garage sales lately - though not many of those this time of year!

Good luck!

Hey, I practically live in Montclair, and I know for sure that the Center for Hospice Care Thrift Shop is still open, as I went there today. And I also think that the St. Luke's one is there too; haven't checked in a while.

I actually found a few listings for thrift shops by using the Superpages website-- www.superpages.com. You could probably try that.

I know that in Bloomfield, towards Bloomfield Center, there's one called Second Time Around, I believe. And I've heard of the Christian Women's Thrift Boutique on 279 Glenwood Ave (also in Bloomfield), and of the Bloomfield Presbyterian Thrift Shop, somewhere on Broad St. I'm not sure if they're all still in existence, however.

Ah, well, hope that helps SOMEONE  Cool

The Superpages might be your best bet, though.

Are you looking for clothing or other stuff? There is a place in Wanaque (or is it Haskell there) - I think it's called the Storage Chest (I couldn't find a listing for it, but I drove past it yesterday). It's on Ringwood Ave, and it's almost directly across from the Wanaque Post office, and the CVS. They have a lot of used household stuff there, sometimes furniture, etc. Sometimes it's a disaster, sometimes more organized, but sometimes digging for the stuff is half the fun, right?   Wink

Update - it's called the Treasure Chest, it's kitty-korner across from the CVS.

HI, I live in Nutley and  I go to this little thrift shop in town at least every two weeks. I don't the name by hearth but it's on  Chestnut Street and they always have the cutest things and in excelent condition.
I just scored a brand new Betty Johnson hand weaved shall, to die for! and they allways have nice vintage shoes.
I can get the name for you tomorow, as I'm keeping my eyes open with toothpicks by now. Smiley

*writing these down*

I'm in Essex Co. also, and have been thinking about finding thrift places.  I did look a few up, but I think a few of the church-run ones had limited weekly hours, when I was away toiling at my 9-5.  I've been to the Pompton Lakes Sal Army several times, it's always overflowing with stuff.

the only thrift store i actually go to is practically down the street from me; it's really small though, and doesn't have a huge selection. I really want to go to different ones like the few mentioned, (goodwill, salvation army,) but i don't know where to look. I live in sussex county, and im sure there's probably tons--i just don't know how to find them. Might sound stupid--o well.
