Best Thrift Store

Charleston Outlet


At Charleston Outlet, featuring a tiny yet impressively curated vintage rack as well as a designer boutique (always head there first), it’s not unusual to find a Catherine Malandrino dress for $30 or a well-preserved mink cape for less than $20. The store’s popularity is growing so quickly that it was forced to build a parking lot for overflow just half a block away.
