Best Thrift Store 

The Barberton
Salvation Army

With thrift-store threads in high demand, it's hard to find product that hasn't been picked through. But just off the beaten path is thrift-shop Valhalla: the Salvation Army in Barberton. Since its clientele is largely made up of grandmothers in search of elastic-waist slacks, the racks remain stocked with to-die-for finds for penniless hipsters, including $3 scrunch boots, gold lamé purses, and 1970s sundresses. The jewelry selection is top-notch, with plenty of kitschy brooches and chunky beaded necklaces. The store also boasts a decent array of vintage tees that are usually only found on eBay for $100. Hurry before the good stuff falls into the hands of a boutique buyer.
