Best Thrift Stores in Minnesota That Aren’t Goodwill

Thrifting has become so popular recently and for a good reason because the clothing industry is the 2nd biggest polluter of our world. But what if you are looking for more places to check out other than Goodwill? Well, I got you, here are some of Minnesota’s hidden gem thrift stores. The majority of these places are thrift stores you can also donate to, or our non-profits because giving back is important, especially now.

Common Closet Thrift Store, Wabasha

According to, Common Closet Thrift Store was “recently voted ‘Best Thrift Shop in Minnesota.’” The store takes a wide range of items, resells them to the community at a low cost, then regularly donates proceeds to local charities. Located at 154 Pembroke Ave, Wabasha, MN.

Prop Shop, Edina

Don’t let the name fool you, this non-profit is another great place to not only shop second-hand but to donate as well! Located at 15199, 15195 Martin Dr, Eden Prairie, MN, 55344.

Repair Lair, Minneapolis

I wanted to add this place here because of its unique offer. Repair Lair “Not only [repairs] gear and outdoor clothing, they consign and resell it.” Located at 3304 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55406, this is a place for all Minnesotans to go check out! We all know how much outdoor gear is, so why not let Repair Lair fix your gear or shop from them?

Common Goods, Baxter and Crosslake

As stated on their website, “Common Goods is a trendy thrift store for the community-minded shopper, owned by Bridges of Hope. Common Goods offers high-quality goods at reasonable prices.” Common Goods makes it clear that they want to help keep items out of landfills and help those in the community. Located in Baxter, Crosby, and Crosslake.
