It's not a thrift store per se, but White Elephant, pretty much downtown, has excellent prices on hunting, fishing, camping supplies, and kid's toys. They also have a lot of Spokane World's Fair trinkets still in the original boxes for reasonable prices.

You didn't ask about places to eat, but let me volunteer the European Breakfast House for a hearty breakfast or lunch, they have an orange juicing machine in a plexiglass box going in the mornings, a Rube Goldburg contraption, but the juice is of course good and as fresh as you will get.

Also the Elk Roadhouse, try the lamb sandwich.

There is the European grocery store, Kiev, that has good prices on all sorts of mostly Eastern European and Brighton Beach sourced foods, and some really excellent Ukrainian style breads.

If you are driving, be aware that there are more than a few speed traps on 395.

Good luck, I like to visit Spokane, hope you have a good trip.

M3, I came here for meetings and training with my Spokane work staffers so I followed them to their choices: White Box Pie Bakery & Cafe, Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar, and Peacock Room Lounge in Davenport Hotel. For my personal quick meals, I went to Dick's Drive In twice and Sweet Frostings. All of their foods were delicious.

There are lots of lightly-used city intersections having no stop signs so I was asked by my follower to slow down toward the intersection and look at both sides before driving on.

I was not pleased by Value Village on West Boone. Yesterday I went to check collar shirts. There was a posting that Green Tags are for 50% off. I looked the green tags for collar tennis shirts. Most were ranged between $9.99 and $12.99 but tags on other color showed between $3.99 and $7.99 so I walked out immediately. Price Rip-Off.

I will try to check at the Goodwill store.

I do miss my favorite store, Beebe's Treasure Chest Thrift Shop in Rehoboth Beach, DE.

This is very scary IMO, floored me when I first noticed it.

Spokane is still the only place I'd ever seen it.

The Goodwill store on 202 E 3rd Ave is pretty good. I found a better one at the diVISION Thrift Store on 2915 North Division Street.
