I went to school in Chicago for a year, but even when I returned to Chicago to visit friends, this was on my "must" list to pick up gifts from my trip.

Real quality items, great prices, and there is an entire floor for each gender (men's basement, women's upper floor). There was even a whole selection of "Save Ferris Bueller" shirts in the men's basement.

Not too mention that this store is in a good neighborhood to grab some eats and to do more shopping, that is if you didn't already drop a lot of money and come out with more than you could carry here. Rad stuff.

It still remains on my top five list of "thrift" locations throughout the country. KUDOS!

Pros: Love everything about it!

Cons: Not a lot of parking in the area, but literally a jump from the Belmont stop on the Red Line

My friend and I went into Ragstock the other day and had an absolute blast. She found two great shirts, and I found a dress as well as some vintage toys and fun party favors. You could spend quite a while in this story and still miss good stuff. Lots of fun- my only complaint is that they should have at least one more person working- we waited a while for service. Other than that, definitely going back!

I moved to Cali years ago, but this will always be one of my favorite stores! Awesome deals and unique finds. I visit the Windy City once a year and this store (812 Belmont) is always on my list of MUST places to visit.

PROS: The workers always have that wonderful shitty Chicago attitude
CONS:

As far as thrift stores go, you pretty much know what you're in for. You'll spend a couple hours rooting through absolute garbage hoping to find one article of clothing that makes your jaw drop when you realize how little you're going to pay for it. It doesn't always happen; sometimes you just go home with nothing and are all annoyed. But the number of times I've stumbled on a fantastic find has been higher at Ragstock than at any other thrift store in Chicago. So yay for Ragstock... I have a wondeful leather jacket because of you.

Ragstock has a wide selection of used, vintage clothing and novelty items from your childhood and possibly even from your grandparents' childhood. The upper floor houses most of the used clothing, while the ground floor contains joke items, toys, rubber and blow-up dolls of all sorts. A few of the items may be considered a bit risque.

As a used and new goods retailer, Ragstock can sometimes offer some gems and collectibles. But some of the items can be, well, quite ragged. Be forewarned.

The entrance can be hard to find: you actually have to go into an alley and then up a flight of narrow stairs. However, I heard that they recently opened their front door to the public.

This place is hard to find (its in a back alley on Belmont between Clark and Halsted). However, when you do get up there they have the coolest clothes at a decent price. The last time I was there I bought an awesome Wilson track jacket for only $10. They have hats, coats, army stuff, weird stuff, girly stuff, random stuff.... you name it. Can't beat it.

PROS: the illest clothing around
CONS:

this store has recycled clothes as well as discounted new clothes. some of it is really cheap but most of it is still a litlle too pricy for my taste. they do have cool and unique stuff but it's really messy so you have to spend a long time looking before finding good stuff.

not only is this place a fun spot to find super cheap vintage stuff, it's a great source for costume party clothing--wigs, bellbottoms, tight pants, schoolgirl uniforms, et al. but be warned--the week or two before halloween is CRAZY. found some great plether pants here, but they fell apart after about a dozen wearings. oh well--what do you expect for $15?
