Thrift Store Shopping in Carteret County, North Carolina
Now, I'm certainly no Fashionista, but I do love clothes. I especially love shoes and bags! According to the latest fashion mags & websites, anything old is in style this fall/winter. Not only are 40's, 50's and 60's fashion hot, but so are the 70's, 80's and 90's. Now, I loved the eighties, I drive my husband crazy with 80's music, but the fashion.... I'm not so sure about. We'll see.
With times being so tough economically, one of the best ways to shop for clothes is at thrift stores. Not only will you save a small fortune, you'll be going green (reduce, reuse, recycle), and you will most likely be helping out a charity organization as well. And.... Thrift Stores are fabulous places to find "old" clothes.
There are many great thrift stores in Carteret County. I certainly have my favorites, and most of them have a lot more to offer than just clothes. Books, kitchenware, furniture, jewelry, toys.... Just about anything you can imagine. Below is a list of Thrift Stores in Carteret County, North Carolina. I'll start with my favorites......
Caroline's Collectibles - I love Caroline's, not just because it is a fabulous store, but because proceeds go to the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program..... WONDERFUL!
