I had reasonable expectations for this place, but I will never be back. Everything is dirty, smelly, dusty, and thrown around helter skelter. But okay, it's a thrift store. What really got me were the prices and the cashier's rudeness. With the exception of clothes (and ladies, good luck finding anything you'll actually like), I could pay about the same amount to buy most of their stuff brand new. A dirty water glass for $4? Come on, Target is cheaper. I tried to buy a scratched, dented picture frame with no price tag, and the man behind the register wanted me to pay $15!! When I offered (quite reasonably) to pay $5, he screamed at me that this wasn't Goodwill! Yeah no kidding, I'd rather go there any day. Bottom line, this place doesn't care about its stuff or its customers; it's not worth your time or money.

This place is "overwhelming but in a good way" It's really easy to find, but fairly small. It's crowded with stuff and you have to maneuver your way through the aisles.

Used furniture in the back and out front. Used tapes, books, records and housewares in the front. Some bicycles piled on top of each other. A couple rows of clothes in the middle. I wasn't impressed by the clothes but I would definitely check it out to find dress coats, larger sizes, men's clothes, small appliances or housewares. New clothes are still priced fairly high and they don't bargain.

An interesting place to get to know. When I was there they were burning incense in the front and I ended up bringing a cup of coffee to the guy behind the registered.

L & N was the first thrift store I visited after moving to DC and it's still one of my favorites. They have lots of random junk--housewares, old records and books, bicycles and lots of used and some new clothing. The store is a mess and everything is crammed together so expect to do a lot of digging.

They have both women's and men's clothing but the women's clothing is usually just ugly polyester print rejects from the early 90s. I've never found anything good in that section but maybe you'll have better luck. No, the real find here is the men's clothing. I've found fab jeans and Banana Republic and J Crew pants here in great condition for a dollar or two. Definitely better than paying $40 full price.

As I discovered the hard way, I would not recommend buying a bike here. Their bikes are usually overpriced and if you find a deal, there's probably a reason why. In my case, I brought home a lemon with warped tire rims and broken brakes

PROS: cheap men's clothing, some housewares
CONS: not much for the ladies
