I am thinking about moving to Montanta, Missoula, in a year or so after returning from a long awaited 9 months in NZ. My boyfriend is applying for law school and I am checking out different cities that he is considering moving to. I do a lot of art/craft stuff from recycled materials (rummage, junk, thrift store, odd crap, etc). Are there places in Missoula that sell "junk" both building supply type stuff and clothing, material, odd stuff.  Here in Madison, W there are so many places that I will miss. My favorite is a St Vinny that sells clothing and goods by the pound! There is also a store through the university that sells stuff from old computers, chemistry stuff, office supplies, chairs, cabinets, just about any kind of crap you could possibly need. Missoula seems like a pretty hip town, so I am not to worried abou selling stuff, but I want to see if there  are good supply resources.

Carol Lynn,

By the time you get to Montana, my directory will be complete. I hope you'll find it usefull for finding thrift stores at least.



Don't forget to look in your local thrift stores for your crafting supplies. Please check out my national directory of thrift stores at www.TheThriftShopper.Com for your shopping convenience.

I haven't lived there for about 5 years, but it's only gotten bigger and there was plenty there then. It's a great town!

I LOVE Missoula! I've visited there every summer of my life with my family, and now I go to college there! There are tons of second hand stores, import shops and hippie shops downtown, a dollar store, and both Jo Ann's and Michaels. Can't think of anything else right now, but I'm sure you'll find something you'll like.
