thrifting trip: minneapolis to cambridge

Hello dears!

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite Saturday morning thrifting trips, from Minneapolis to Cambridge. This route rocks because it’s peppered with thrifts you can visit on the way, and once you’re to Cambridge, there are three stores within a couple of blocks. The drive’s do-it-in-your-sleep easy–just cruise up Central Avenue (also known as county road 65) and you’re there! I recommend going on Saturday mornings before traffic builds up (there are a ton of lights on 65). And, some of the thrifts in Cambridge close up shop in the mid-afternoon on the weekends. New to this map, I included a few of my favorite spots to stop for snacks, ranging from the co-op in Cambridge (if I’m hankering for kombucha) to the Main Street bar/grill that makes delicious Bloody Marys and super cheap burgers.

Happy hunting!

If you like this post, might you find my thrifting maps for St. Cloud, Burnsville and up 35W useful too?

  1. I’ve never been to the Cambridge thrifts, although I’ve thought about it.

    I have been to Saver’s–used to be able to find some cool things there, cheap, but they’ve changed–or I have.

    I’ll always remember the 2 Fenton Cranberry lamp thingys I found for $9.99 (for the pair) that I flipped on ebay for about a $250 profit.

    =)
