We recently asked Axios San Antonio newsletter readers about their favorite thrift shops in San Antonio, as spring cleaning kicks into high gear across the city.

Why it matters: Bringing new life into used clothes, accessories and housewares is a fun exercise in style and good for the environment, as our Axios Chicago colleague pointed out recently.

  • Plus, it's often more affordable, and many thrift stores donate proceeds to great causes.

Here are some spots readers recommended:

  • Assistance League of San Antonio on West Avenue near I-10. Recommended by readers Liz J. and Don M., who say it's clean and inexpensive.
  • Grey Moon Vintage on Broadway near Brackenridge Park. Reader Daniel R. says it has the coolest thrift clothing and items inside an Airstream.
  • Too Good to Be Threw near U.S. 281 and Bitters Road. Reader Toni R. W. says this giant space has clothing, furniture and more — a great place to both shop and donate.
  • Goodwill, all locations. "I've gotten designer tops for $5.95 and a toaster oven for $10 that I've been using for years, among other things," reader Glenda W. says.
