If you are like me and love to get bargains and browse through unique and unusual items , then thrift stores,antique malls, and flea markets are perfect for you. Cincinnati has several great stores that will satisfy any bargain hunter.
The number one store on my list is Valley Thrift in Fairfield, OH. It is located on Highway 42 about two miles down the street from Jungle Jim’s shopping plaza. It is a huge store and has a wide variety of items, including clothing,toys, furniture, electronics, accessories, shoes, and much more! Every Monday is customer appreciation day and they take twenty five percent off the already great prices. My husband and I have both found more than one treasure at this store!
The second thrift shop I have to mention is Ohio Valley Goodwill in Woodlawn. Located at 10600 Springfield Pike, this store is just a few short minutes from Tri-County Mall and worth the stop! This goodwill is the biggest in the area and jammed packed full of great deals. They run specials everyday, but Saturday’s usually feature fifty percent off all the items in the store. This store stocks a large supply of furniture and clothing and it’s almost impossible to walk out empty handed.
Next on my list of best bargain stores is the Salvation Army in Norwood. This store is located just off the highway near Montgomery Road. It is an huge old building that doubles as a rehab center, but don’t let the rough exterior turn you away. In the lower level they stock clothing, but the upper level is where the real deals can be found. This store has the best selection of used furniture that I have found in the Tri-State area. Everything is priced to sell and there is plenty to choose from for every room in the house. It is a must visit for the Cincinnati bargain hunter!
The Ohio Valley Antique Mall is a fabulous store with a wide variety of unique items. Located near Fairfield on Dixie Hwy they sell beautiful antique furniture, china sets, and all sorts of collectibles. This store is brimming with treasures and the prices are more than fair for the savvy shopper’s wallet. This is a great place to find unique gifts and that one special item you have been searching for for years!
Number five on my list is a bargain hunter’s dream. Trader’s World Flea Market is a huge market with hundreds of vendors. Located between Cincinnati and Dayton off Highway 75, Trader’s World is conveniently located next to Tanger Outlet Mall. Open year round, this is a great place to visit during the summer or winter and spend a day browsing or buying!
Cincinnati is a great place for any bargain hunter to find whatever it is they are looking for, so get out there and shop!
