Thrift Shops Personalities

Thrift stores are like people, each has its own personality, so which Stillwater thrift store best fits you?

Written By: Leah Brainerd

Thrift shops have become a hallmark of American culture, with people stepping away from the fit-in culture and into a more artistic, unique style scene and Y2K fashions. This new phenomenon has caused the creation of new thrift stores everywhere, and each thrift shop that pops up is unique in its own way. Stillwater is no exception to this phenomenon, and each thrift store here has its own personality.

Stillwater Goodwill: Goodwill is the thrift store for you if you are the high-end seeker. This goodwill has been known to have Madewell, Free People, Top Shop, and Anthropologie. The best brands at a fraction of the price!

Salvation Army: Needing furniture? Then this is the place for you with the best resale furniture! Great for children’s clothes as well as OSU clothes!

Stillwater Super Thrift: Super Thrift is probably the cheapest thrift store in Stilly, and has great t-shirts and sweaters plus a wide range of shoes, hats, and houseware. A little more digging is required, but makes for the most fun day with friends and new finds!

Karmen’s Korner: Needing jeans? Karmen’s Korner has 50 cent jeans as well as okstate merch and some great books. In addition to clothes, there is also some fun houseware and other great clothes with a little digging.

Elite Repeat: The place for homegoods, if I ever saw it. Tons of plates and cups and houseware for your new home or apartment, or if you are interested in making mosaics from old china or glassware. Nice furniture and lots of fun, patterned womens clothing.

Habitat for humanity ReStore: The place for couches and nice chairs. Great for odds and ends furniture to spruce up your home or apartment. Great lighting choices and some houseware for cheap.

Thrifty Butterfly: This perfectly quaint store has a less overwhelming selection of clothes than many other thrift stores, perfect for baby thrifters just starting out. Has great okstate merchandise as well as very nice women’s clothes.

Gypsy Snark Books: Want to feel like Princess Belle? Then this bookstore is the place for you. Walls and walls of used books in any genre you could want. Perfect for any book lover, or as a picture spot for your trendy instagram profile.

Walls: Wanting new clothes for cheap? While Walls is not technically a resale shop, because their merchandise is new, it is all extremely marked down and very nice. Perfect for needing a nice dress or some fresh flannels.

Antique Mall: Anything and everything you could ever want is in the Stillwater Antique Mall. Need vinyl records? Need books, jewelry, or light fixtures? Well let me just tell you, they have it. Three stories of thrifting heaven, just don’t get lost.
