Thrift Shopping for Vintage and Antique Items in Olympia and Beyond
Vintage stores, thrift shops, and antique stores are plentiful in Olympia and its surrounding communities.
Shopping at them is more than just about getting a good deal (although that’s a huge benefit) – it’s about the thrill of the hunt, striking a bargain, and coming home with a bit of history.
There are so many reasons to shop secondhand in Thurston County. Here’s how you can benefit from our thrift shops:
There’s often a lot of mileage left in clothing, furniture, and household goods when the original owners start get a bit tired of them. That special high we get from obtaining something new can wear off quickly. Get the same thrill while keeping perfectly usable items out of landfills and dumps. You score and you also save the planet. Double win!
Shopping at vintage and thrift shops can mean less money leaves your wallet. Just think of the items you’re purchasing as “pre-loved”, not used.
This is especially true of antiques. The vintage piece you’re after may have been mass produced at one point, but there probably aren’t a lot of them around anymore, which means the items you find are going to be pretty unique in your sphere of influence.
Support Small Businesses
Shopping at vintage and thrift stores means you’re keeping it local and supporting the small businesses that are the backbone of a community and can have deeper economic impacts. More of the money you spend in local shops stays within that local community.
It's Just Plain Fun!
Shopping for vintage and second-hand items with friends or family can be a super-satisfying way to spend the day. Plan a weekend trip to all of our surrounding communities shops and check out all of the amazing finds they have to offer!
