It’s amazing just how many thrift, consignment, boutiques and all-around cool shops I’ve still yet to check off my to-do list in Portland. At least it keeps me busy.
Many of you in the twitterverse keep telling me to check out the Catholic Charities Thrift Store (244 St. John Street) so on a recent Saturday, when I found myself at Maine Hardware looking for polyurethane, I decided to stop in.
I appreciate the pre-culling, but for me, the best part about thrifting is being able to find a little treasure amidst all the dregs. So if you want instant vintage gratification, steer yourself towards the front of the store since I had a hard time finding more vintage pieces within the regular racks.
