Full Circle Thrift

Full Circle Thrift

January 25, 2024

Full Circle Thrift is a well organized thrift/ resale store with discounts of 60-95% on used/ donated brand name & designer fashions, accessories, home decor, household items and more.

As I looked around, this was more than your average thrift inventory. This surprising thrift is nicely merchandised with racks, bins and groupings according to type of product and it doesn’t smell like a used product store. Nearly everything was without blemish, staining or obvious wear & tear and there were lots of good brands.

Outside were the sales racks and bins. These had items at $1-3 and show’d some wear and tear.

But inside, in the women’s section, I spotted a yummy, L’Agence silk yellow top at $54. Resale Market price is $75-189. A Juicy Couture checkered Pea Coat was $90 ($135 on EBay).  A floral, Alfani blouse was just $12. A Vince Camuto boho blouse was also $12. An OP rash guard top was $4. A North Face Parka w/ fur trimmed hood was $100. New retail is $290- 350. A vintage suede fringe jacket was a super sweet deal at just $50. A cream silky Perry Ellis Portfolio blazer was $25. Market pricing is $35-48. An Elevenses (Anthropologie) double breasted rain coat was $30. A zip up, textured / embroidered jacket by Laundry was $25 and a NWT beaded cocktail dress by Adriennea Papell  that retailed at $260 was $30.

The mens section is in a smaller side room with books & CD’s. Here, I found a men’s Scotch & Soda LS shirt for $20. A Zara floral button down shirt was $7. Billabong shirt was $7. A tailored Penguin shirt was $12. A Banana Republic vintage hoodie rain jacket was $30 and a Patagonia zip up Thermal top was $50. CD’s were $1 DVD’s were $2.

Upstairs was where all the home goods were, dish ware, home decor, toys, electronics and more. I saw new and used puzzles starting at $2, dish ware at $2-5.

Located in an Historic building, this charity thrift benefits local organizations like Journey House, Door of Hope, Elizabeth House and others. So you know your donations & purchases are helping the community.

As any seasoned thrifty resale shopper knows, you could spend hours here … or just 20 minutes because it’s nicely organized.

Full Circle Thrift is fun resale thrift to shop! Discover some good quality items with a great selection at thrifty prices!
