(THIS STORE HAS CLOSED) Thanks to Duane for letting me know!
On W. 10th Street is the well-worn Salvation Army store. The good news is that you’ll pass by the once-thriving Hazel’s old-fashioned soda fountain, where you can still cool off from a tough day of thrifting. This thrift, however, is still open, and although it has definitely seen better days (can someone please donate them some new carpeting?!), the pay off is everything from pianos to Pebble Beach Cardigan golf sweaters, plus a set of golf clubs for every level player. With an entire wall filled with used books and an impressive audio section, you’re likely to find a copy of “Join Bing and Sing Along 51 Good Time Songs” on vinyl for a mere quarter.
