Thrift and consignment stores are like going on a shopping safari. You never know what you'll find, but you're sure to save money.
Check out these three thrift and consignment stores in SLO.
The owners at Ruby Rose scour West Coast flea markets and estate sales, so you don't have to. They bring the best of the best right back here to SLO. Ruby Rose carries vintage clothing and accessories, home decor, and textiles.
The store's inventory has a bohemian vibe, and you'll never know what you'll find: leather bags, funky wall tapestries, or beach-ready hats. Follow Ruby Rose on Instagram to see what they have in this week. The store periodically closes when they go scouting for new finds, so it's best to call ahead.
Change of A Dress
This consignment store gets rave reviews for their elegant, high-end brands and range of sizes. Change of A Dress carries women's clothing and home decor. Think brands like Manolo Blahnik, Tracy Reese, and Zara.
This is the place to go if you have a special occasion coming up, like a wedding or other formal event. If you're strapped for cash, but you need a "work wardrobe" for that upcoming internship, check them out. Stay up to date with some of their current inventory by following Change of A Dress on Facebook.
Fred & Betty's Thrift Store
You can feel good about shopping at Fred & Betty's Thrift Store. They're a non-profit store that benefits the San Luis Obispo Classical Academy. Thinking of taking guitar lessons? Fred & Betty's often has gently used musical instruments in stock.
You'll also find kitchenware, clothing, and art supplies. Their flat rate pricing for many of their goods makes budgeting ahead of time easy. If you have any clothes or other housewares you're no longer using, Fred and Betty's will gladly accept your donations.
