This was our first and favorite store! The store was amazing! They had tons of brand-new
Target items. This was a very clean and large Goodwill. IMG_4801Farhyn found this cute romper, she has been looking for a romper for a while now.  I got a few shirts and some pants for hiking. We spend almost an hour here. I would have spent more money but I wanted to visit other stores.

Everything on this rack was brand new from Target!

This was the cleanest and most organized Salvation Army that I have ever been to.
Since itIMG_4803 was Good Friday, they had a Scavenger Hunt. They hid Easter Eggs around the store with coupons inside. Farhyn and I ended up not buying anything from here…. but we did have fun going around and hunting for eggs.IMG_4802  

A whole row of dresses!

M,T,Th, Fr, Sat: 10-5PM

This store was great! It is located in downtown Monroe. They had lots of stylish clothesIMG_4805 & a $1 rack. I got these awesome green dress pants for only $1. They used colored tags to offer discounts based on how long an item has been in the store. These adorable polka-dot Gap jeans and American Eagle blazer were $4 and $5 dollars, IMG_4806with the 50% discount. They had a pretty fabulous shoe section as well.

(734) 457-43770

111 S Monroe St Monroe, MI 48161 M-Th: 10-pm

F & Sun: Closed

Sat: 10-4pm

This store is also in the downtown areas and we walked here. Unfortunately, this stIMG_4811ore is closed on Fridays, we could only peek through the windows. It looked like they had a lot of antiques and unique items.

5 Serendipitous Vintage

(734) 244-5720


40 S Monroe St

Monroe, MI 48161

Sun-M: Closed

T-Sat: 11-5pm

We walked up and down Monroe Street in the downtown areas searching for this address. We called their phone number and it was disconnected. When we finally found the address the building was for sale. It is probably safe to say that they are no longer in business.

6 Thrift Shop Association

(734) 242-1082

119 S Monroe St Monroe, MI 48161 M, W, Sat: 10-4pm

T: 10-1pm

Th, Fri, Sun: Closed


IMG_4813This is downtown as well, within walking distance of the others.  They had mostly vintage items. There were two older ladies running the counter, talking about their dislike for Donald Trump. We did not buy anything here but we loved their vintage dresses.

7 Habitat for Humanity ReStore-Monroe

(734) 243-1108

840 LaPlaisnce Rd Monroe, Mi 48161 T-Sat: 10-5PM

IMG_4814The Habitat for Humanity ReStores are generally pretty cool. They sell home improvement items and furniture. This one was quite small compared to the Ann Arbor location. They had a nice selection of gallon paint cans for $12 each.

8 Sauer Furniture & Antiques

(734) 242-6284

15300 S Dixie Hwy Monroe, MI 48161 M-F: 10-6PM

Sat 10-5PM

Sun: Closed

homeimageThis place is HUGE! We only had 10 minutes to explore because they were closing early for the holiday. We want to come back and spend some time there. There were so many cool collectibles and furniture. In the way back they had a bargain ‘room’. The ‘room’ was more like a warehouse.


9 Humane Society of Monroe County Thrift Store

(734) 240-0562

15649 S Telegraph Rd Monroe, MI 48161 Wed-Sat: 10- 5pm

Sun-Tue: Closed

IMG_4817Adorable location and building. All the proceeds help the Humane Society.  The items were all home goods and kind of sparce. Farhyn did find some awesome wall art! logo

10 Acts II Closet Resale and Consignment

(734) 241-2272

2520 N Telegraph Rd Monroe, MI 48162 Sun-M: Closed

T-F: 10-6pm

Sat: 9-4pm

We instantly loved this shop -they had a dog out front to greet us. We gathered that this place is run by a Christian family, based on the music they were playing  and  the name of the store.  They had a lot of  Antiques mixed with furniture.   IMG_4820
