Ok guys so not alot of people who thrift like to divulge their favorite places to shop but guess what? I'm giving you the low-down on my favorite Bay Area thrifting spots, yup!  Just don't take all the size 8 shoes, plz & thank you!

1. Salvation Army on West San Carlos

This is my trusty store-or any Salvation Army for that matter, I've always been able to find goodies at Salvation Army stores. They have good sales (like 50% off on Wednesdays and the last Fridays of the month). Make sure to get there early on sale days because you already know, the early bird gets the worm ;P

2. Crossroads 

So I know what you may be thinking, I will never be able to get good stuff at cheap prices at Crossroads. But give it a chance. Whenever I go, I make a beeline straight to the clearance section. I've found name brand shoes and the cutest dresses for $3-$8.

3. Goodwill

Even though I don't frequent Goodwills that often, they're a little over-priced for my taste to be honest BUT you can still find really good things. I've found a brand new pair of Free People platform shoe for $5 bucks and countless other good finds. If you're a Target fan, then you're going to love Goodwill stores. They receive Target donations, so very often you'll find discounted Nate Burkus furniture or really cute new clothes.

4. Teen's Challenge

This is a really cool hole in the wall thrift store that's not too far away from Crossroads. It's a small enough that you can haggle for prices

5. Capitol Flea Market

It might be because I grew up going to flea markets but I feel like these are some of the best places to find legit stuff. As long as you have the patience, that is. You can get new/gently used clothes for 50 cents to $1, endless knick knacks and here unlike retail thrift stores you can haggle to your hearts content. 

Have you gone to any of these thrift stores? Which is your favorite Bay Area thrift store?
