College is not the time to be buying Gucci or Tommy Hilfiger. Ain’t nobody got money for that. We, generally, want to find clothes and such on the cheaper side. How should a college student who can’t even afford a pint of ice cream go about doing this?
If thrift stores didn’t exist, I don’t know what I’d do. Maybe the world would have a totally different economy that wouldn’t have a need for thrift stores, but I’ll keep alternate universes for a different post. Most of my clothes are from sale racks and second-hand shops like Goodwill and Savers. But what about the locally owned thrift stores that are tucked away for a town’s own curiosity to dig and find them for themselves? Those are my favorite.
Grace Church Thrift Store is a hidden treasure. The best part?
The most you will ever pay for anything is $1.
It’s about a 5 minute drive through a hilly south Menomonie neighborhood, and it’s really quiet, too. It’s a nice change from campus. Y’all need to take a break from those 3 square blocks of Stout-dom once in a while!
They are only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 9am-4pm! They also only take cash.
Here’s their Facebook for more info!
