According to Savers, the average American throws away about 68 pounds of used clothing and rags every year. In the U.S. alone, this translates to 20 billion pounds of used clothing and textiles tossed into landfills annually. When you shop at thrift stores, not only can you find great bargains on clothing and household goods, but you also help the environment.
These thrift stores in the Phoenix area sell clothing, vintage items, housewares, collectibles, and sometimes furniture. Inventory changes often, so you might find nothing on one day and the perfect items the very next day.
