Weekdays 6:00PM-10:00PM

It might be my favorite holiday today. It is National Thrift Shop Day! Macklemore said it best, "I'm gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket!" Sorry I had to do it.

Someone cue Macklemore from 2012, because we’re talking about thrifting! Shopping secondhand is not only cheaper, but it’s also sustainable. Plus, you can find some really unique treasures that can’t really find in any other retail store.

Not that I really need to sell you on thrift shopping…if you’ve been before, you know the rush you get when you find that one thing calling your name. The new knick-knack will bring the whole room together. Or the statement piece you’ve been dreaming about for MONTHS! Whatever you’re looking for when you go thrift shopping, you’re bound to find something you didn’t even know you needed.

I like to thrift shop a lot, and I especially like to go with my best friends. Because obviously, they know your style sometimes better than you do. And it’s always nice to fall in love with something that your good friend picks out for you.

These are the 9 best stores around Charlotte for thrift shopping. A lot of them I’ve been to already, but some of them are at the top of my list to visit and try out! If there are any stores I left off the list, but you think deserve on this list, please let me know!! Seriously, I need thrifting advice as much as anyone. Email me where you go thrifting at lexi@kiss951.com.
