Favorite Pittsburgh thrift store:

My regular thrift store in the Red White & Blue on Ohio River Boulevard. I’m sure it’s been chosen already! It’s the closest to me, and I like it because the items in the store never hang around for very long. If you go in once a week, it’s always a different store.
