If you’re looking for larger furniture pieces, or even kitchen appliances, you just may find it here. I ran across a vintage O’Keefe & Merrit stove at this store and saw a decent selection of bed frames and a couple of antiques. Just switch out the handles to glass knobs and you’ve got a piece that would go for several hundred dollars elsewhere.
Although it’s nothing much to look at from the outside, inside the store is clean, well-lit and well organized, so you’ll find plenty to peruse, including racks of jeans and enough tchotchkes to keep you busy for awhile.St. Vincent de Paul 2406 El Camino Real Redwood City, CA 94063 (650) 366-6367
