I've had some success at TurnStyle in Roseville, also with selling some items too. They have a few different locations, I'm not sure if there are better / worse locations.

I'm more interested in ones with decent book selections. Most just cram them all on shelves randomly.


Goodwills are pricey but fairly well ran (besides the book placement) and Savers (Bloomington) seems to be constantly cycling in donated stock also lacking in book placement.


Neither are consignment stores, thrift only.

If you're looking for women's consignment clothing, my favorite is Elite Repeat, at the intersection of Randolph Ave. and Hamline Ave. in St. Paul. They carry a lot of mid- to high-end "mall brands" like Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, etc., as well as designer stuff. (As a bonus, you can listen to the bowling alley below as you shop!) They're right next door to Movables (furniture consignment), though I've never shopped there.

If you're at Elite Repeat, you're just down the road from Encore Boutique (Hamline and St. Clair) and My Sisters' Closet (on Grand Ave., just west of Lexington Ave.). Both are consignment. I haven't shopped at either store in some time, but they seem to be popular.

There's also a TurnStyle at Ford Pkwy and Cleveland Ave. that has a large women's department as well as small sections for furniture and men's clothing.

My wife recommends Nu Look Consignment at 50th and Penn in Minneapolis. A lot of their stuff is brand new and still has the tags on it. http://www.nulookconsignment.com

My wife loves to Thrift shop and has a very good eye for picking out good clothes for herself. There are some excellent shops here. She told me I can't tell you were the best stores are because she doesn't want competition

I've been to Unique in Burnsville (west of the mall) a few times - thrift store - and it's huge, with an excellent selection. Apparently there's one in Columbia Heights as well, though I've never been there.

Unique Thrift does a does job with their books. They're massive. I also enjoy Arc. Right now Arc in New Hope has an expanded book section due to a large donation. Both have some furniture. Bibles for Missions in Crystal is expanding and has the largest thrift furniture section I've come across.
