Best Secondhand Store - 2006
Douglas Gardens Thrift Shop
Just as you'll never find a Forever 21 in the Bal Harbour Shops, you'll never score good, cheap thrift in the Design District. For that you'll have to venture to not-so-fashionable Liberty City. Douglas Gardens Thrift Shop is a sprawling warehouse of anything and everything you never knew you needed. Beaded evening gowns, retro dining room tables, campy cookie jars. Toasters go for as low as five bucks. Glasses for the kitchen cost a mere 50 cents. Then there are bedroom sets with sticker prices up to $2500. It's the Wal-Mart of thrift stores -- without all the lawsuits and stuff (instead proceeds go to the Douglas Gardens Jewish Home for the Aged). Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
