Seems so long ago I was driving out of California heading to Arizona!

You know you’re in Arizona when…

My hubby and I decided to forego Vegas and instead take a “little” detour through Arizona so we could see Monument Valley!  Hence the first stop on our journey home was not Vegas but Flagstaff!!  #practicallyexactlythesame  We arrived in Flagstaff pretty late so while my family watched hotel TV (which somehow seems like THE BEST), I searched for little thrift and decided to use my Arizona thrift stop on the Cedar Closet Thrift Shop.

Like many little community thrift shops, this one is run by volunteers and the proceeds benefit a local charity – Operation School Bell.  I met such lovely ladies when I stopped in!

I told them my life story then insisted on a selfie, ‘natch.

These volunteers through the Assistance League in Flagstaff so obviously loved what they were doing, it made the thrift stop a true pleasure.  “This is what I do for my fun time” – I can only hope I say the same thing in my retirement years!!

They offer every child a free book to promote reading and keep kids occupied while their moms shop. #winwin
Big selection of furniture and household goods.
Would have liked to take the bench home but I settled for that cute kid.
Lots to search through… and an antique piano!!

Would have bought these Bandolinos for $3 if I could have gotten my feet into them!
I appreciate a well-organized thrift shop, especially when I know it was organized by people acting out of the goodness of their hearts!!
Little thrift prices are THE BEST.
Mens’ and kids’ goods!
There was even a boutique section!
Store selfie!

I ended up getting a couple of pieces for myself without trying them on till later…

I had high hopes for this vintage wool-blend grey dress but alas it was a too big.  #lookingforthisinasweater
Grey striped wool-blend soft and cozy sweater?! For $3?!! That’ll do!

If I lived in Flagstaff, the Cedar Closet would be in my regular rotation of thrift stops!!  Good cause, fun thrift hunting – this is the kind of place where one day you’ll find a priceless designer piece!!  I have a feeling!   So if you live in Flagstaff, go there!  And if not, go to your nearest little thrift!  


  1. What a lovely little store. A clean and bright thrift store is so important to me. And no “thrift store ” smell. We have a couple of charity ones in my area that meet the criteria and have great volunteers as well. Love your blog!
