I recently came back from a trip with my sister to Cleveland, Ohio. We were in an area called Fairview to the west of Cleveland that has a bunch of thrift stores in close proximity to each other so it was super easy to do a couple of stores each day. I found so many gems, which I shared over on my Youtube channel, but I wanted to share the stores I shopped at in case you are in the area and want to visit them for yourselves.
Here are all the places I visited in order of how much I liked each store:
common threads - fairview park
This place was awesome! They have daily sales, which I always appreciate, and it is very well organized by section. They also have little display areas for different holidays or themes. This is where I found the majority of my things and everything was pretty cheap. If I lived in the area, I could see this being my favorite go-to store.
the salvage yard resale shoppe
Such a cool store! They sell vintage and antique pieces as well as handmade gifts. Most antique pieces are priced reasonably. I honestly could've done a lot more damage at this store if I wasn't limited to just a suitcase.
showcase fairview park
This little thrift shop is set up in an old house. I loved hearing it's history and I found some really unique, vintage pieces. They had a ton of beautiful things I would've scooped up if I had the space. The day I went they had a buy one get one free sale so if that's a regular offer, it's definitely worth checking this place out.
My first time going to a Savers did not disappoint. I found a bunch of nice decor pieces and they had very large, well organized sections. I was also surprised to find so many vintage books. I believe they have a loyalty program as well.
common threads - brook park
This store was not as good as the other location, in my opinion. The items felt a bit more outdated (and not in a fun vintage kind of way) but I was still able to find some cool pieces. The prices are similar to the other store so definitely a good deal and worth checking out if you're in the area.
Definitely a store where you have to do a bit more rummaging but I did find some nice pieces. The prices are a bit higher but you can still get some good deals on clothing and some home decor pieces. Paintings and artwork are very expensive so I wouldn’t bother buying those here.
goodwill industries - brook park
I found a couple of gems at this store. They had a some nice linens and pillows and some really nice baskets and other trinkets. This is also where I hit the jackpot and found my little spice rack and a ton of clothing. The Goodwills in some areas have reward programs so that's worth looking into!
goodwill industries - lorain road
Home decor was more expensive here though I did see a couple of cool crocks and beautiful baskets. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to stop here but it's right across the street from the Salvage Yard so you can stop by and have a quick look while you're in the area.
