Thrifting, upcycling, creative reuse – whatever you want to call it, it's IN and for good reason. You can find great treasures, it’s good for your wallet and it’s sustainable! Make your treasure hunt even more sustainable by hopping on transit to create a fun day visiting one, or a few, of the many thrift shops throughout the valley.

Here’s a few options to get you started on your treasure hunt:

  • Opportunity Village Thrift Store, located at 390 S. Decatur Blvd., is one of the largest thrift stores in the valley. And there’s a bonus when you shop here, you’ll be supporting Opportunity Village’s efforts to help individuals with disabilities thrive through workforce development, community employment and more! Take RTC Transit Route 103 to get there.
  • Buffalo Exchange, located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, is a favorite for those seeking unique and stylish clothing and accessories. The store, located at 1209 S. Main Street, can be accessed using RTC Transit Route 108.
  • Alt Rebel, also located in downtown Las Vegas, seeks to turn “second-hand shopping into an upscale experience” in its smaller, boutique setting. You’ll find them at 1409 S. Commerce St., Ste. 100, which can also be reached using RTC Transit Route 108.
  • Savers With five locations in the valley, this national chain offers a large variety of clothing, household goods, and more. It operates under a unique model, accepting donations of clothing and goods on behalf of local nonprofit organizations and then pays the organizations for those donations, helping to fund their operations. Visit their website for locations and then use the rideRTC App to plan and pay for your trip!

Happy hunting!
