Our Favorite San Diego Thrift Shops

The masterminds behind Pretty Little Details Co. gave us some tips on the best local resellers and what you can find there

This October, we took you to a sophisticated, celestial gathering and dinner party, and helped you set the scene for your own soiree. Whitney and Amanda of Pretty Little Details Co. shop thrift stores and DIY where they can, including when they set up the event. We asked them to give us a list of their favorite local thrift shops and what they typically score there.

Amvets (near the airport) is the best source for home decor and tableware and also for vintage finds like typewriters and cameras. 3441 Sunderland St, amvets.org

Goodwill has lots of locations, but Whitney and Amanda usually hit the one in Hillcrest because it’s organized more like a boutique, and the housewares selection is minimal but always good. 1219 University Ave., sdgoodwill.org

Salvation Army in the Sports Arena area has a large home decor and tabletop section. 3240 Sports Arena Blvd., sandiegoarc.salvationarmy.org

Reusable Finds on Custer Street in the Morena area is a huge warehouse and garden space filled with vintage clothing, home goods, furniture, tableware and more. 5320 Custer St., reusablefinds.org
