Right across the border as you leave Maine, lies an entire state of uncharted thrifting possibilities. Though I was too fearful to roam far, I did swing by Savers on Woodbury Ave in Portsmouth. I’ve been hearing good things about this national chain, but I had yet to check it out in person. I was shocked at the giant selection.
I decided to focus my thrifting solely on clothes this time around, though the housewares and books section seemed vast. Prices ranged from the very cheap to the cheap.
Savers is organized. Majorly organized. The women’s section alone has racks of shirts that varied by style: short-sleeve shirts, tanks, knit tops, tees, etc. It was a great way to avoid the items I didn’t want to scour through and focus solely on tops that I prefer to wear.
Still kicking myself for not buying this dress at just $3.99. I hate having non-buyers remorse…
One of my absolute favorite things was the jean rack. Denim is hung at a diagonal so it’s easy to check out tags and labels to find a size or brand that you really love. It made scanning these racks pure bliss. And look at how they display accessories! Each hung from their own binder clip! Whaaaaaaat!!!
And don’t worry fellas. I didn’t forget about you. Though the men’s selection was much smaller than the women’s, I was impressed at the lineup. I loved that they had a wall of suit jackets, pants and SWEATER VESTS lined up together. Talk about one-stop shopping!
Overall, I left pretty happy with my experience at Savers. Though I don’t think I’d drive over an hour out of my way to thrift there on a normal weekend, I will happily swing by the next time I’m passing through. I might even check out some more of their locations.
