This clean, well-organized thrift store in the Chestnut Square Shopping Center was shared with me by a very nice shopper at the ARF Thrift Store, so now I’m sharing it with you. It’s off the beaten thrift store circuit, so you’re more apt to find a treasure or two. Great prices, friendly staff, and an entire room filled with large furniture pieces. Seniors get a 20% discount every Tuesday. (After you scratch that thrifting itch, head down Clayton Road to Alpine Bakery and enjoy one of their cookies with a cup of joe). You’ll swear you’ve time traveled back to the 1950’s.East Bay Teen Challenge Thrift Store 3437-39 Chestnut Avenue Concord, CA 94518
