Sunny San Diego’s Thrifting Highlights

On our fantastic journey to San Diego we visited a couple sensational thrift stores and I cannot wait to share! Lead by the lovely Kiera (who knew little cousins have know all the best thrifting knowledge?), all of the highlights were in a walkable distance along Garnet Avenue in downtown San Diego. Here’s my top 3:


3. Goodwill 1430 Garnet Avenue, San Diego, CA

I know what you’re thinking! You’ve been to Goodwill, it’s nice but it’s not anything to scream about. Well get screaming. This was the fanciest, friendliest, most charming Goodwill I have ever had the pleasure to visit. They had an excellent selection of sun dresses and great quality stuff! I picked up a pair of sandals that look brand new and sick-nasty tie from their beautiful tie collection there. Who knew?


2. United Cerebral Palsy Thrift Store 1454 Garnet Avenue, San Diego, CA

This store was just a gem! NOTE*** Requires some digging, if that ain’t your strong suit, this may not be your store. However they do have some really killer stuff including some clearly marked genuine vintage clothing worth much more than they are selling for. They also have this sweet board that lays out what is on sale for what discount every day (see photo above) and offer a student and military discount on top of it all. I walked out with a brand new Loft dress, a head scarf, and a couple tops for under $15 dollars. Most of it I didn’t even know was discounted!


1. THRiFT Trader 1460 Garnet Avenue, San Diego, CA

Okay. This place is the bees flippin knees. The exterior and interior were equally awesome and had the most adorable dressing rooms. But while ambiance was a huge selling point, it was not what put THRiFT Trader at the number one spot. They featured a great selection of clothing at a really great price.. that is any item (unless otherwise marked) or 5.99 or 4 for $20. I picked up my absolute favorite finds from the trip at this place and at one point had Cece climbing to the ceiling of the store to remove a shirt from a mannequin for me. It was really cute. 10/10 would recommend.

Needless to say I had quite the hay day. And now you are well equipped to have one yourself (thanks Kiera). Pictures of the cutest pieces will be popping up on the blog in the future, so stay tuned folks
