Salvation Army

Maybe it’s because it’s the only thrift store in San Bruno, or maybe it’s because it’s right on El Camino Real, but whatever the reason – this thrift store is hopping.

I saw lots of designer clothing with labels like Banana Republic, Anne Klein and Abercrombe & Fitch, as well as plenty of vintage ensembles to keep the racks interesting.

There are large furniture pieces and small appliances and there are shelves and shelves filled with glassware.  It also seems like a fairly good place to find original and framed art pieces.  Lots of regulars shop here, so get there early and find out when the trucks arrive with new merchandise.

This store got lots of mixed reviews on Yelp, but it’s still a great place to find a suede or leather jacket!
