I'm moving to Berlin in September, am operating on a budget and am a thrift store junkie.  Where are the good ones? I welcome all recommendations.

I remember a chain of second hand stores called 'Humana' - they used to have great sales weeks where every item in the store started on 5Euros and then went down day by day. There web prsence isn't terribly well done.
But from what I gather these are their stores in Berlin (they are a list of shops that you can drop off your stuff so I reckon you can also buy stuff there):
Standorte der Annahmestellen (Läden):
10178 Berlin-Mitte, S-Bögen Gontardstr. 112-117, Tel. 242 3000
- Gebrauchtmarkt Tel. 231 5335
10243 Berlin-Friedrichshain, Frankfurter Tor 3, Tel. 422 20 18
10435 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg, Schönhauser Allee 45, Tel. 440 63 33
10435 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg, Schönhauser Allee 90, Tel. 447 91 50
10559 Berlin-Tiergarten, Turmstr. 26, Tel. 397 50 00
10629 Berlin-Charlottenburg, Lewishamstr. 1, Tel. 31 80 35 43
10777 Berlin-Schöneberg, Nollendorfplatz 6, Tel. 217 52 104
10827 Berlin-Schöneberg, Hauptstr. 147, Tel. 781 36 38
10967 Berlin-Kreuzberg, Kottbusser Damm 78, Tel. 69 59 97 61

There also used to be a 2nd hand store (more trendy than Humana), where you could buy stuff by the kilogramm:
Ahornstraße 2, 10787 Schöneberg
Tel. / Fax +49-(30)2112760
Underground: Nollendorfplatz

I also used to like the more trendy 2nd hand shop in the Bergmanstrasse (great street for other second hand shopping and other cool stuff):
Kleidermarkt Colours
Bergmannstraße 102, 10961 Kreuzberg
Tel. / Fax +49-(30)6943348
Underground: Gneisenaustraße/Mehringdamm

Just dicovered these two shops are actually part of this 2nd hand chain:

Also check out this link from the Berlin Tourist Information:

Do not forget to visit one of the many 2nd hand markets or even the normal markets (especially the market in areas with a lot of turkish people often have a lot of fabrics on sale).

Happy shopping,
