BEST THRIFT STORE (2003)

There are quirkier thrift stores around, but nobody else really has the space to compete with this behemoth. Clothes, knickknacks, glassware, books, furniture, old typewriter tables, luggage, wall decorations--this store has it all. About 20 couches, and even more stuffed living-room chairs, fill the extra-discounted basement every day. If you need a winter coat cheap, you'll almost certainly be able to find one to your liking. And oh, the memories. Finding a framed print identical to one you remember from your friend's parent's basement in the '70s--the cost to bring it home may be $2, but the reminiscing is priceless.
