Top Five Thrift Stores for Vintage Clothes ‘Picking’ in Toronto

Toronto is full of old clothing stores but smart pickers will always go to the source. Some stores are better than others, and cheaper too – they are the used clothing donation centers that exist in every neighbourhood. The best ones are Salvation Army stores, and Value Village and Goodwill. Why are they the best? Because the clothes are donated right there at the store. The best stuff hits the shelves fresh a few hours after its dropped off in the back. Its a pickers paradise. In my opinion, the very best thrift store in Toronto for sourcing wicked cool used clothes is this Value Village at 924 Queen St. E. at Logan.
