Traveling Thrifter - Jacksonville, FL

Jacksonville (JAX), seated in Duval county, is the most bustling place in northern Florida. It was the destination of my March traveling thrifter shenanigans as I decided to take a road trip to visit family for my birthday weekend. The night before my planned thrift haul was spent googling, checking reviews/facebook pages/websites and making a short list of places to tackle. With my aunt as my trusty sidekick, we set out early Saturday morning and had a pretty good run until my allergies kicked in full swing. Nevertheless, we had a few productive hours before crashing at Boiling Crawfish (yum!).


Here are my top 3 recommendations for your next (or first visit) to JAX:




Hubbard House Thrift Store

  • Friendly staff

  • Monthly tag sales

  • Great furniture inventory

  • Benefits Hubbard House in the fight against domestic violence, supporting survivors and their families


The Thrift Store

  • Very large store

  • Great selection/inventory

  • Frequent tag sales and discounts

  • Not sized but very organized

  • Multiple locations across the U.S.

  • Cash only!

City Thrift

  • Very large store

  • Very organized and sized

  • Great selection/inventory

  • Fitting rooms available

  • Frequent tag sales and discounts (make sure to visit their website to sign up for emails)

  • Multiple locations across the U.S.

  • Charitable partners include AMVETS National Service Foundation, Arms of Hope (AOH) and National Children's Cancer Society (NCCS)

I also checked out Angel AID Thrift Super Center, Goodwill (Baymeadows Road) and Alpha-Omega Thrift Store. All are worth a quick peek! You never know what you'll find. (Make sure to read my Be prepared to shop blog post before your visit so that you can put your best thrift self forward!)


Jacksonville far exceeded my thrift option expectations. I can't wait to return to visit family and hit some additional stores on my list.


Did you know? Jacksonville is the most populous city in the southeastern United States and the largest city by area in the contiguous United States.
