Sometimes, I find something great at Second Mile (nice pair of Levi's new with tags for $5, Dansko clogs in great shape for $2.50, pricey name-brand china mugs for 50 cents each). They sell furniture, housewares, electronics, books, clothes, and accessories. But you really need to dig to find the good stuff. Also, there are no dressing rooms (I know that this is true of many Philly thrift shops, but I'm from CA and it is unthinkable there, so it bothers me) and the place has a bit of a dingy feel, though staff are generally quite friendly. I will continue to go in and dig around for deals occasionally, but it takes patience.

The Second Mile is One of the most popular thrift/consignment shops in University City. It lies on 45th Street between Locust and Walnut. They have constant drop offs and great items. You can drop your old things here if you'd like. There is also a Second Mile Too store a few doors down and I think there may be even another one. I am in a singing group and our instruments were stolen last year. They turned up here! Thank goodness, they gave them back to us for free.

PROS: Nice Items
CONS: There's ALWAYS a car or truck double parked in front of the store
