I may be moving to Lexington in the near future and wanted to find out if there are any nice thrift stores. Presently I live in Roanoke, Virginia, and there are a few Goodwill stores where one can usually find practically brand new clothing and small appliances for a bargain price. Is the same true for Lexington, and, if so, where? I just don't like paying full price if I can avoid it!

Thanks!

Ole Miss Rebel

and there is Restore which benefits Habitat for Humanity. They have tons of stuff and it moves really fast. Sometimes they even have free furniture!

I just moved here 4 weeks ago (also from Virginia, the Hampton Roads area which has amazing thrift stores). So far I've just found Goodwill- not terribly impressed. However, there are several great consignment stores for children & adults which are a great alternative and a pleasant surprise!

Sorry I should have been more specific- Re-Kid & Once Upon A Child are ones I've checked out, but have spotted about 2-3 more. Also Plato's Closet (not sure if that's the correct name) is great for adult/young hip clothes.

There are two great consignment shops on Moore Drive, off Nicholasville Road. The one for ladies is called Apres Vous, and the one for children is called Over the Moon. They are on the north side of the street.

There's also a Salvation Army store on New Circle and some pretty decent Goodwill stores off of Nicholasville Rd too.

That Salvation Army store is pretty good! I got a nice cat carrier there recently, as well as some great VHS movies.
