Does anyone know any good thrift stores in the Durham-Raleigh-Chapel Hill area? Preferably one that sells used furniture, clothes, shoes, things like that? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

I like the North Raleigh Ministries on Spring Forest Rd (beside Snoopy's hot dogs). NRM Thrift Shoppe Info (http://www.northraleighministries.com/thrift_shoppe.html - broken link)

Another place I like is the Habitat for Humanity store, but it is mostly building supplies with some furniture and interior furnishings. Habitat Wake ReStore

For clothes, my wife likes Sarah's Cottage in downtown Wake Forest.

I like Retails in Raleigh: AnimalKind.org: ReTails Thrift Shop It has clothes, household goods, a little furniture, books, and jewelry. They have frequent (and funny) sales -- ask for their calendar flyer listing them all for the month.

Any Goodwill store. If you go to the one near Walmart on New Hope Church Road in Raleigh (North Market Drive, the same street where Red Lobster is), you can go to three thrift shops: Retails, Goodwill, and Antiques to Zippers.

I've also gone to the Goodwill in Wakefield.

You'll find clothes and some household items at the Bargain Box in Cameron Village.

I used to go to the American Way Thrift Shop on Crabtree Boulevard off Capital, but I haven't been there in a while.

There's a Goodwill on Hargett near the store listed above (Father and Son).

Cause for Paws has 3 locations, 2 in Raleigh and 1 in Zebulon. Cause for Paws| Providing pet and wildlife support in the RDU are. Proceeds donated to Second Chance Pet Adoption!!

The American Way Thrift on Crabtree (across from a Cause for Paws) closed recently.

Wake Forest has a few antique shops that are cool in the little downtown area. If you are going to the 1 listed above (Sarah's Cottage), you are close to GC5 vintage gifts and furniture. I don't see a site, but they have their items listed on Facebook GC5 Vintage & Gifts | Facebook

Guardian Angel Thrift in Fuquay-Varina is awesome. I almost don't want to share it with anyone else...Guardian Angel Thrift - Home

When the weather warms up a bit and is consistent (like it should be in a couple weeks), the flea market in Raleigh has some great finds.

Happy thrifting!

I like going to the various Goodwill store in the area for clothes and small home items. I also go to the ReStore in Durham off 15-501 for larger items. PTA Thrift Shop in Carrboro has some decent stuff as well (haven't been to PTA in Chapel Hill yet).

I also like the various Goodwill stores, I mainly shop at the Cary store on Kilmayne and the Apex store near 55/64. I've heard good things about Dorcas Thrift Shop in Cary on Maynard Rd but I have never been there.

Apparently, there is a "Cause for Paws" thrift shop on Crabtree Boulevard:
2420 Crabtree Blvd Raleigh, NC 919-828-4864
Open 12pm to 5pm Sun, and 10am to 6pm Mon – Fri

I've been to the Dorcas Thrift Shop. It is a good one.

I shopped that store for many years, but discovered last week that it is now closed. The quality of goods there has been in decline anyway since it changed management a few years ago.
