Teen Challenge Thrift Store
They really have the better part of half the store made up of furniture. All sorts: old and wonderful, new and waiting to collapse. There's a $15 telescope. A dining room table without chairs for $50.
Clothes are theoretically divided into S, M, L, XL, though, not really. There are no fitting rooms. The clothes here might still bear the tags for the stores that donated them, as well as the store that tried to sell them before, like Value Village. That explains the clothing prices which for the most part range from $1-$4. Which isn't to say that there isn't great clothes here, it just takes a bit more work. For example, I found new suede skirts and overalls from several seasons ago, with the tags still on them. But I also found clothes that had done a lot of work already.
Also. Pillows, blankets, sheets, a poncho? A Honda 1100 Gold Wing for $4500!
The Christian aspect here is throughout. You'll encounter students talking about bible verses, and it's not surprising to hear "You're too blessed to be stressed".
They take credit cards, and they're closed on Sundays.
