Two phrases I live by; "reduce, reuse, recycle, repeat" and "one man's trash is another's treasure!"
Philly is home to many great vintage boutiques and thrift stores. Here is my top 3:
Mesh Vintage- Located in the heart of South Philly on Passyunk Ave! You can shop the most unique mens and women vintage clothing and accessories here. Everything is high quality and the prices are fabulous. Many $1 options available to shop from as well in the bins outside. Keep in mind, this is a one woman shop! She owns and operates her business herself, no employees. Hours vary but are typically Wednesday-Sunday 1pm-7pmish.
Philly Reclaim- Home of the nonprofit organization, Philadelphia Community Corps and located in the northeast area of the city! You're going to find reclaimed building materials, architectural pieces, unique furniture, tools, and more! Whenever I have a DIY furniture project I want to create, I come here for my supplies. Be sure to follow them on social media for $100 complimentary gift card coupons! How amazing is that? We made our dining room table for $0.00 from using the coupon on materials!
Philly Aids Thrifts- South Street is blessed with many shops and restaurants but one of my favorites is this city gem. Proceeds to each sale are donated to 15+ local HIV/AIDS service organizations. You can seriously find everything in this store! Clothing for the entire family, furniture, home appliances, movies, records, and thousands of books!
