You don’t have to celebrate Easter to enjoy thrift-store savings. Here’s a quick list of sales happening this week.
Break open a fortune cookie to reveal your savings—15, 20, 25 or 30 percent off your total purchase this Saturday, April 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every cookie is a winner so stretching your money is guaranteed.
St. Paul Animal Ark Thrift Store
Take 50 percent off Easter items and save 25 percent on all art work this week. Heads up cooks: All brown dishes (bean pots, crocks, serving dishes, etc.) are also 50 percent off and the selection at Ark is out of hand. I spied a set of four lidded, individual serving crocks for around $5 and that’s before the half-off discount.
Putting together a last-minute Easter basket on a shoestring budget is easy with 75 percent off everything Easter-related. This offer’s running at all 12 metro-area Goodwill stores.
Assistance League Thrift Shop
Stock up on belts, purses, scarves and jewelry—they’re all75 percent off this week. Easter items are also on sale, but the selection is pretty picked over as of today.
St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores
The Minneapolis store (2939 12th Ave. S.) is offering 50 percent off all things Easter. The St. Paul store (461 W. 7th St.) is offering 30 percent off anything related to the holiday.
Unique Thrift Stores
Take home Easter items for half-price at both the Crystal (4471 Winnetka Ave.) and Minneapolis (2201 37th Ave. NE) locations.
Hidden Treasures Thrift Store
Save across the board at this small St. Anthony thrift store—spring jackets, Easter items, media (including CDs, vinyl, etc.) and all items with purple tags are on sale this week.
