Best Of 2013: Thrift Store

I frequent the Uintah Gardens Arc Thrift Store mainly because it's the closest of the four local Arcs to my home. But it's the 45-year-old nonprofit's newest store, on North Academy Boulevard, that I try to hit whenever I'm up that way, because donors to that location often pass along excellent-quality pieces with labels from the fancy-schmancy stores at Shops at Briargate. (And that's your insider thrift tip for today.) It seems you all like the Arc as much as I do — it's been undefeated as a winner in this category since 2006. And when you add on that the money spent here supports advocacy and support services for those with developmental disabilities, everyone's a winner.— Kirsten Akens
