Thrift Shop ‘Til You Drop
November 19, 2017
As a classic thrift shop, Goodwill never disappoints. The simple setup, friendly employees and crazy affordable prices all make it irresistible. There are several locations in the St. Charles County area—Highway K being the closest to St. Dominic. However, the best finds come from the Lake St. Louis location (my personal favorite).
Although it is no Goodwill, Grace’s Merry-Go-Round is impressive for a resale store. It’s a little pricier, but there are more high-quality options for every section of antiques, shoes and jewelry. The same goes for the clothes which, unlike typical thrift stores, are organized by color. The warm atmosphere of Grace’s keeps customers wanting more.
St. Vincent De Paul
At St. Vincent De Paul, the products are a little too organized and the employees are a little too friendly. Nonetheless, it is stacked with endless vintage items like old sewing machines, telephones and more. The clothing options are less than mediocre, which unfortunately takes up a large section of the store, but if you’re planning to go antiquing, swing by St. Vincent De Paul.
If you take Bryan Road to or from school, consider stopping by Mom’s Resale. This thrift store has gone through many changes this past year, all the while maintaining a rustic and vintage look. Cheap clothes, shoes and accessories are up for grabs. Mom’s Resale is no Goodwill, but it’s not a bad place to stop in.
When you’re thrift shopping, every day holds something new. No matter where you go, you are bound to come across wonderful finds that will last a lifetime.
