I think by now, everyone knows Kansans love antiques, uniques, and a great bargain. However, the savings and good finds you get here in the Sunflower State go beyond used cars and pawn shops. Kansas as a whole is home to a plethora of thrift stores, consignment shops, and boutiques, but here are some of the greatest thrifts in the whole state. Where do you get thrifty? Check out some of these, and maybe you’ll find your new favorite!
1. Et Cetera - 619 N Main St
Et Cetera isn't only a great thrift shop, it raises money for the Newton Mennonite Central Committee. They're a great non-profit thrift shop, which means you'll always find the best prices here.
2. Fort Riley Post Thrift Shop - 267 Stuart Ave
Fort Riley, KS
Riley Post sells both thrift donations and consignment, meaning prices vary wildly, and so does the merchandise. Anything from televisions to boots can be found under this rustic roof.
3. Findables - 4032 Huntoon, Gage Village at Huntoon & Gage Topeka, KS
Midland Care Findables is a resale store unlike any other. They use their profits as benefits towards Midland Care Hospice and Palliative Care Services in Topeka. They've got purses, dishes, (and maybe even fishes,) but there's plenty of flair to go around, folks.
4. My Best Friend's Closet - 12152 Shawnee Mission, Shawnee Mission, KS
At My Best Friend's Closet, they're passionate about what they do, and what they do is fashion. They're a consignment thrift shop, and they have great quality pieces at low prices, (which is the whole point, no?) striving to make their customers happy and help them stand out from the crowd.
5. Sassy Sisters - 106 W Main St. Toronto, KS
In a town named Toronto, there's a shop selling retouched furniture, salvaged goods, and thrifty decor. Though they don't sell clothes like most thrift shops, they sell quirky pieces you'll have to see for yourself. Why not stop in for a bit?
6. Sweet Repeats - 8993 W Central Ave Wichita, KS
Sweet Repeats is a fashion-forward consignment boutique that carries womens and teens clothing. They have plenty of pieces for all trendy ages, and you'll enjoy the prices much more than retail.
7. The Doggie Bag - 816 N Broadway St Pittsburg, KS
If you don't like cats, I don't recommend you visit this little shop, as their love for animals is almost as great as your love for thrift shops. They're an ongoing fundraiser for the SEK Humane Society, where all items are donated by local residents to help the shelter. Who wouldn't love a cat and a new coat?
8. The Tabitha House - 219 W 10th Ave Ashland, KS
Here's that catch-all thrift shop we're all waiting on. They accept donations of new and used items, and they're always having sales, and they really do have a little bit of everything.

Thriftopia is just that - a thrift store utopia. They sell anything from furniture to clothing, and
10. TurnStyles - 9750 W 87th St Overland Park, KS
TurnStyles cares about its customers just as much as customers care about the prices. They're a christian organization with a loyal group of staff and volunteers who work here. They're here for you.
11. Twice Is Nice - 1021 S Commerical Oswego, KS
The thing about thrifting, is that not only one person gets to love your garment or decoration. Sometimes it's owned twice, thrice, or even more times! Twice Is Nice, a resale and consignment store, has a wide variety of clothing and decorations for much less than their retail cost. They've also got daily half price sales. Even better!
