Whether you’re preparing for a bargain-hunting spree or are always in need of something a little funky fresh, we’ve rounded up seven of Sac’s secondhand stores that are ideal for both thrift-a-holics + casual shoppers alike.
🛍️ The Thrift Store | 6606 Fruitridge Rd.
Despite its namesake, this store isn’t so ordinary. Serving the area for 40+ years, The Thrift Store is a place where you can find a mix of everything — whether it be kitchenware, children’s toys, clothing, or furniture. The store also benefits WEAVE programs with its proceeds.
🛍️ Eco Thrift | 7224 55th St.
With five other locations across California, Eco Thrift prides itself on being green by recycling unsold items + working with textile recyclers to export leftover products to third-world countries. At 39,000 square feet, this South Sac store is brimming with handbags, school supplies, furniture + lightly-worn clothing.
🛍️ TRUE (Totally Recycled Urban Exchange) | 1900 K St.
For the fashion-forward, this WEAVE thrift store — located right outside of Midtown’s Handle District — carries a collection of contemporary clothing, accessories, shoes + purses. Its organized racks + layout make it a browseable experience, so say goodbye to digging and sorting endlessly through merchandise.
🛍️ Upscale Thrift | 2590 21st St.
This Curtis Park “boutique style” thrift shop — which has a second location in Carmichael — sells gently worn clothing, accessories, artwork + knick knacks to support local nonprofit Free Will Foundation. Pro tip for all the men out there: Make way to the Man Cave located in the back of the store to discover a selection of men’s tees, dad caps, sporting gear + more.
🛍️ The Past & The Present Thrift Shop | 2131 K St.
Also the location of Jodette’s Belly Dance Academy, this Midtown shop is a patchwork of jewelry, house decor, clothing + more. The store’s owner Jodette — who may regale you with stories of when she met Janis Joplin, Muhammed Ali + Ronald Reagan — opened the thrift store to help stay afloat during the pandemic.
🛍️ Hidden Gems Thrift Store | 2245 Florin Rd.
The name says it all — established in 2019 by owners Passion Bailey + Berry Accius, this hideaway in Florin Plaza is the place to discover buried treasure like jewelry, vintage books + DVDs, and more. Pro tip: Hidden Gems offers appointments for private shopping.
🛍️ WEAVEWorks Recycled Fashion | 2401 Arden Way
With proceeds supporting Women Escaping a Violent Environment (WEAVE) — a nonprofit crisis center for victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence — this Arden thrift store boasts purses, clothing, accessories + jewelry that often have high fashion brand names.
