Reno and Sparks Thrift Stores

Save Money, Have Fun, Help a Worthy Cause

I discovered thrift stores when I was in college, a newlywed, and broke. Thrift stores are fun and save you a bunch of money. Our Reno / Tahoe thrift stores are a motley lot, but that's part of the fun. Poke around and you are guaranteed to find something useful. Another plus; stores run by non-profit organizations do not charge sales tax.
