If there’s one thing you get from a thrift store, it’s a tool. They are the to-go item for a lot of people who have a habit of shopping there or even if they attend estate sales. Make note that we aren’t talking about big power tools like welding torches or circular saws. After all, you may not have any use for things like that. The point is to get some of the basic tools you will always need around the house!

And you know that if they’re being resold, they have been used before or at least they have withstood the test of time, so their quality cannot be bad. It’s good to look for genuine American-made tools, the brands that you heard about from your parents or even grandparents! And if you find something but there’s a bit of rust on it, don’t get discouraged! If that’s all that’s wrong with the item, you can fix it in a matter of minutes!

  1. Let’s not forget electronics! Some of the best electronics gadgets I have came from a thrift store. One that I use daily is a Fisher cd player. I bought this over 10 years ago for $5. It was an older model, but still in it’s original package. After getting it home, I emptied the box to see what my small investment included. I was shocked when it appeared that it had never been out of the box… ever! From the protective plastic on the digital readout, the factory packing, and even the unwrapped batteries it came with! It was like grandpa had gotten it from the grandkids but never had use for it. Treasures like this are rare, but always a welcomed addition.

  2. Went for a specific item, a walker for my Mom. Had several to choose from and the one I chose was discounted even further at the register. I had no idea.

  3. I will shop at both ARC and Good Will. I love buying books there, although Good Will has much better organization of their bookshelves.
    I’ve found great deals on collectible teapots and teacups, and I always buy a package of random greeting cards.
