San Francisco Thrift Stores

There are oodles of thrifting opportunities in the City – you just have to know where to look.  This is an on-going, ever-expanding directory of all of the thrift stores and charity stores operated by non-profits in San Francisco.  You will be surprised at how many there are (and how much money you can save by frequenting them)! We’ve barely just scratched the surface and will be adding more stores as time permits. Just click on a store below…

  1. It seems that every listing for thrift stores is far from complete. What about the Goodwill on Geary, Mission@S. Van Ness and in the outer Mission? There is also a Salvation Army on Geary btwn 3rd and 4th aves. I keep looking for thrift store listings on line, only to discover that I seem to know more locations than Google. I was hoping to look for stores in the east bay, now it seems my chances of finding any would be better if I were to hop on BART and just get off at each stop and walk around for a few hours. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of time or energy. It’s nice that you are trying to put together a listing of stores, I just wish it was a little more comprehensive before you posted a blog about it.

  2. Sorry about the last post, I’m just cranky right now and this thrift store junkie needs a fix. But, if you could possibly list which stores (particularly in the east bay) are within walking distance from BART, it would make things much easier for those of us that are not familiar with the area. Thanks!

    1. Hi Alvie: Thanks for stopping by and for your comments. Yes, you are right – my listings are not quite complete yet. I only post on the stores that I’ve actually visited and documented. This has been a part-time project for me for the last several years and I’m slowly making my way around the entire Bay Area (and even a little beyond). I hope that you’ll bear with me as I attempt to get to every last thrift store…

      Happy Thrifting!
