It’s National Thrift Shop Day!

Thrifters rejoice! We have a national holiday to celebrate the joys of thrifting!
Wednesday, August 17th has been deemed “National Thrift Shop Day” and I cannot wait to celebrate it.

 

National Thrift Shop Day was started as a way to highlight the amazing benefits of thrifting–helping the environment, saving money, and of course, finding one-of-a-kind pieces!

What better way to celebrate this most amazing of holidays than treat yourself to a little thrift shopping or host a clothing swap with your girlfriends? Make sure to check if there are any special sales going on at your local thrift stores and use #NationalThriftShopDay to show off your awesome finds!

Happy thrifting!

Sacramento Thrift Stores by Neighborhood: Folsom

Thrift Stores by Neighborhood
Whenever I can, I like to visit the Folsom area for some secondhand shopping. Even though the city is a little bougie, it’s got some great spots to score big on a budget! I’ve got 6 stores in Folsom to recommend, which are all laid out on the map below–many of these stores are located on East Bidwell, making them super easy to shop in one day! I know…you’re welcome.

Re-Love it Consignment Store
1300 E Bidwell Street, Suite 125
Folsom, CA 95630
Facebook
This is my “treat yo’ self” store. When I want to go secondhand shopping, but I want a really nice experience, I head here. The staff is always helpful and everything is organized nicely. They recently moved to a bigger site, which means more racks of clothes to shop! Since this isn’t a traditional thrift store, the prices are a little higher, but make sure to check out that 50% off rack in the back–there are always goodies there!

Belle Mode Consignment Boutique
1012 E Bidwell Street, Suite 500
Folsom, CA 95630
Facebook
Belle Mode is another lovely consignment store in Folsom. I always enjoy working with the staff and though the store is a little cramped, they’ve got a good selection of shoes, handbags, and clothes. It’s really close to Re-Love it, so you can easily pop in if you make a trip to the area.

Freestyle Clothing Exchange 
850 E Bidwell  Street
Folsom, CA 95630
Facebook
Ah, Freestyle. They have 3 buy-sell-trade stores in the Sacramento area, and one of the biggest happens to be in Folsom (they have another location in Citrus Heights, but it is now an outlet store). They’ve got everything here–trendy, vintage, a clearance section, and even clothes for guys! I have a hard time NOT finding something at Freestyle and this store is one shopping center over from Re-Love it–I mean, could it be any easier to make a shopping day out of all of the stores I’ve listed thus far?

Free Will Foundation Thrift Store 
320 E Bidwell Street, Suite B
Folsom, CA 95630
Yelp
This is a small and unassuming store, tucked in a strip mall, but I’ve had good luck finding treasures here. They have regular color tag sales and many of their clothing items are under $10. Proceeds benefit the Free Will Foundation, which helps homeless get back on track. It’s not a big store, so you can easily stop in for a quick look. 

Snowline Hospice Thrift Store
616 E Bidwell Street
Folsom, CA 95630
Yelp
This store is on the way out of Folsom as well, so it’s a good one to stop by at the end of your visit. It’s your typical thrift store, with a mixture of housewares and clothes. Don’t go with too high of expectations–their prices are low, but the selection isn’t the greatest. That said, it can be a good place to find your basic pieces. Again, the proceeds support the non-profit which helps give treatment to those with chronic illness. Why not shop for a cause? 

Goodwill
390 Plaza Drive
Folsom, CA 95630
Yelp
As you can see on the map, this Goodwill store is off the path from the other stores I mentioned, but I had to include it in this round up because it’s got some goodies! For some odd reason, this is the location where I always seem to score on shoes. Go figure. Other than that, it’s your typical Goodwill and tends to be pretty clean and organized.

If you’re making a day of it, swing by Historic Folsom for some good bites and lovely sights. You can get something to eat, grab a drink at one of the many bars, then take a walk on the bridge for some gorgeous views of the river. Check out the Historic Folsom page for more info!

I hope you enjoyed checking out the must see stores in the Folsom area!
Let me know which neighborhood I should do next!
