Thrift Shops and Consignment Stores in Winston-Salem

Thrifting in Winston-Salem 

With the push for sustainable, affordable, unique, and vintage fashion, “thrifting” has grown from simply trying to land a good deal to an in-demand shopping experience. Local thrift stores range from national household names (like Goodwill or Uptown Cheapstakes) to niche second-hand businesses and vintage enthusiasts (like the longtime locally owned Snob Shop). They often provide a perfect solution for the broke college kid, trendy young professional, resourceful parent, or the uniquely-styled Winstonian. 

Don’t have time to try them all out and see for yourself?! Well, when the itch to thrift hits – we’ve got you covered with the “must-see” thrift shop and consignment gems of Winston-Salem. Read below for the best spots in town.
