Ahhhhh springtime! As sure as it is coming, so is the time where you will inevitably look in your closet and realize you “need” new items to brighten up your wardrobe, or you would like something striking for a special event (like prom or the Figawi Ball). Or maybe your closet is just fine and you are dreaming of new outdoor furniture where you can enjoy the warmer weather. A great way to scratch your specific itch affordably while supporting local business is to shop consignment and thrift stores.
For something you can wear on the regular or a great new pair of pumps, Buy Way Boutique in Falmouth, Changing Tides Consignment in Chatham, Consigning Women in Harwich and Brewster, and Whimsy in Harwich Port are your best bets.
If you need to up the ante for a fancy dress party (think: Kentucky Derby themed parties or Easter brunch), check out Plush & Plunder in Hyannis, Destination Dress in Chatham, and Vintage in Vogue in Orleans is the place to find anything for a vintage themed party or occasion. And Wicked Thrift in South Yarmouth is a LoveLiveLocal personal favorite for finding dresses for formal and cocktail events.
If home décor or a new piece of furniture is on your want list, then we suggest you head to the CapeAbilities Thrift Shop in West Yarmouth, Picket Fence Consignments and More in South Yarmouth, Gatherings by the Sea in Dennis, Found Home in Chatham, and/or Bungalow Consignment in Chatham.
Driving across the Cape and popping in to these shops is a great way to get out and explore this place we all love, as well as meet some of the locals who curate them!
