I am now going to tell you about one of my favorite thrift stores which happens to be in Berkeley. Tucked into a basement room of the First Congregational Church is The Cellar Thrift Shop. This charming little gem really feels like it’s in a cellar, since it’s down a flight of stairs near the corner of Channing Way and Dana Street, but inside you can find inexpensive, hidden treasures. The hours are a bit sporadic since it’s all volunteer run, but it’s worth putting this one on your list.
Proceeds go to in-church projects for the First Congregational Church of Berkeley, as well as community outreach projects for those in need.
