Best Thrift / Vintage

TIE: Flipnotics; Goodwill

Goodwill's going online with their really fine stuff, but it's still downright amazing what people donate, and what can be yours for dimes to the dollar. Enough good can't be said about the worthwhile works of this nationwide nonprofit; your business truly does make a difference. Though Goodwill perennially leads the thrift pack, this year it shares honors with Flipnotics, the apparel companion of the popular coffeehouse, whose downstairs back room purveys a small but smart vintage clothing collection.
