Wednesday, August 17 is National Thrift Store Day (or National Thrift Shop Day, as some refer to it), and secondhand stores all over the United States have deals on everything from fedoras to faucets.
Big nonprofit chains as well as local thrift outlets are participating in sales today, to encourage veteran thrifters to shop and new customers to become regulars. It’s worth checking out our list of stores and deals below or seeing if any of your local thrift stores have a sale as well. You could net a serious bargain: Even without sales, the Savers chain says the average item in its stores costs just $4.50.
If there isn’t a shop near you on the list below, look up your local secondhand store. TheThriftShopper.com has a national directory of charity-operated thrift stores.
