Despite the inconspicuous exterior, the Discovery Thrift Store was HUGE and had all the usual fair – toys, furniture, housewares, clothing…
By the time we finished shopping at the Discovery Market Place and Thrift Store and my hubby called for me to come pick him up, it was POURING rain! A kind volunteer escorted us to the van with an umbrella and saved the day! Great thrift scores, great service, and a great mission like most little thrift stores!
Thrifting in Alabama at Emmy’s Thrift Shop
We stopped for lunch then hit two more thrift shops on what turned out to be the only rainy day of our trip. Next stop was Emmy’s Thrift Shop.
I love little thrift shops like Emmy’s! You just never know what you will find!
Thrifting in Alabama at Goodwill
The next and last stop of my Alabama vacation was Goodwill. Turns out it was a Goodwill Easter Seals location but for my purposes, it was like any other Goodwill with plenty to browse and a great mission to support. However, by this time, the weather had cleared and my family was itching to return to our cabin and fish in the bay so I tried to be quick and didn’t get many photos.
I did not end up buying anything at Goodwill, more due to lack of time than lack of potential. It was a great store, well organized with lots of stock. I wish I had more time and will go back if ever I’m in the area again.
NOW then, if y’all happen to know of any other must-stops for thrifting in Alabama, please say so in the comments! If people land here looking for where to thrift, we want them to have lots of options! Thrifting on vacation is great fun! My summer vacation is almost over and I don’t plan on anymore travel for the foreseeable future, but I will look back on my thrifting in Alabama with fondness and hope I can go again!

We made your Alabama pulled pork yesterday – it is a winner. You don’t need bbq sauce, it is that good.
Love your shopping adventures.
