Sarasota: The Shangri La of Thrift Shops

with Beth K.

Beth K.

Sarasota has more thrift and consignment shops than I've seen in any town. They range from four conveniently located Goodwill stores to more than a dozen consignment stores -- and the prices tend to be far lower than in New York where I began my second-hand shopping obsession. There are bargains galore for those with a good eye, and I am a Goodwill stylist for friends and relatives . . . and, perhaps, you.

I am a former financial journalist and a bit of a gypsy, living in Europe, New York and other locations before settling in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. As a compulsive shopper with reduced earnings, I have developed a new obsession: thrift shopping. Turns out this area has more thrift and consignment shops than any other area I've lived in. Some stores are great for designer clothes; others for furniture and most offer a variety of second-hand treasures. Of course, thrift shopping is now cool, with stylists on HGTV and Style shouting the benefits of bargain shopping. Full profile Leave a Review
