Thifting on Route 66 in Flagstaff Arizona
You cannot believe the wealth of thrift stores in this area! No less than 9 in a small town of about 80,000 residents.
Every store we went to had a special it seemed. Savers had a 99 cent tag deal,Salvation Army just bagged it up and charged a lump sum (low) the Cedar Closet & St. Vincent depaul were two of the best maintained shops Ive ever been in. They were like department stores.
These stores had an amazing amount of good stuff. The St. vincent Depaul had gorgeous wool to knit with,vintage lace,tin trays and other assorted goodies like vintage fabric.
One of my favorite shops though, possibly the best ever experienced, had to be the Hodgepodge, which is run by a hospice group. This place had two floors of vintage lace, appliances,vintage cookware and the like, plus a boutique with super cheap prices and fabulous vintage clothes.This is a perfect vacation spot for the thrift obsessed.
