I recently started working in Wayne, Michigan. For the first time in my life, I have a long lunch break! I have 1 hour! I can get so much done in 1 hour. One day I got a car wash, visited the post office, ate lunch and took a 15 min walk in the park. Another day I went to the Rec Center and ran 3 miles. On Monday, Wednesday and Fridays I go next door to the Rec Center for a Core workout class! Lately, on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have been exploring nearby thrift stores.
Tried & True Thrift Store
AKA Treasures – Resale Shop
Sat – 11am – 3pm
Sun & Mon Closed
Salvation Army Family Store & Donation Center
This is a great Salvation Army. I normally feel overwhelmed when I enter a salvation army but this location seems to be well managed, clean not too overwhelming. They have a ton of dresses and clothes! I bought a cute Forever 21 dress right off a manikin. They also have a unique supply of pretty vases and home decoration items, as well as lots of furniture.
Warning….I always recommend taking a friend with you when you are visiting a new place. It is important to be familiar with your surroundings and caution is always needed. Before visiting any new place I suggest that you check out the crime rate. There is a free app called Crime Mapping. It allows you to look at crimes in your area over the past 6 months. It really is an eye opener. These two areas are near my work and only 3 mile apart. Wayne is not the safest area so I felt like I needed to share this.
