Best Thrift Stores in Denver, According To Locals

Best Thrift Stores in Denver

We love going thrift shopping in Denver!

It’s a fabulous city full of unique stores that really help to improve our wardrobe and save us a ton of money!

So, we’ve put together a guide to our favorite shopping spots, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.


Kouture Consignment Shops

Kouture Consignment Shops

We love Kouture when we’re looking for consignment stores with a little something extra.

The clothing they sell is all high-end Louis Vuitton-type stuff and we often leave empty-handed because of the prices but that’s half the fun.

If you want barely-used top brand names? This is the place to go.

P.S. If you want to make the most of thrifting experiences, read our tips for thrift store shopping here.

Address: 300 Josephine St. Denver, Co

Peak Thrift

Peak Thrift

Peak Thrift is one of those thrift stores that doesn’t really make sense on paper, they specialize in “en vogue” fashion but somehow this thrift store manages to sell everything for very low prices all the same.

There are no other thrift stores in Denver that come close to offering this kind of value on men’s clothing and women’s clothing.

Best of all, their proceeds go to help homeless youths! So, when you use this thrift store, you know you’re doing some real good in the community.

Address: 4890 Pecos Street, Denver, Colorado

Common Threads

Common Threads

There’s another Common Threads just up the road in Boulder but it’s the Denver, Co branch that we love to go to.

There’s quite a bit of fast fashion on the shelves alongside the designer samples but if you want to save money, you can do very well here – and they carry most size clothing too.

Thrift shops don’t get much better than this.

Address: 1575 South Pearl St, Denver

Clotheshorse Consignment Boutique

Clotheshorse Consignment Boutique

If you’re looking for women’s clothing that has been gently used and even brand new pieces, then this store is great.

There aren’t many vintage items on display (we prefer to go to a specialist vintage store for those) but you can find some vintage clothing among the other choices.

We particularly like the quality of all the pieces on display – only the cowboy stuff looks like it’s been used at all.

Address: 4243 Tennyson Street, Denver

Boss Vintage

Boss Vintage

This store has been offering great prices in Denver, Co for nearly 25 years now and it’s great for regal vintage pieces and wholesale and resale vintage too.

You can find nearly every type of clothing here from t-shirts to accessories and shoes. However, there’s not much in the way of children’s clothing.

What they do have is great shape and they offer great service too! With a large selection of affordable pieces there’s a lot to love about Boss.

Address: 10 South Broadway, Denver

Rags Consignments

Rags Consignments

If you want a wide selection of items to choose from which are constantly refreshed, then Rags might be what you’re looking for.

Most items are consigned which means they’re essentially brand new clothes, jewelry, etc. though there are a few pieces sold here that are donated.

We don’t mind that at all, we think it keeps the selection interesting and capable of surprising us.

If we were looking for women’s clothing in Denver, Co we’d recommend this store as a good starting place.

Address: 201 University Boulevard, Denver

The Ten Penny Store

The Ten Penny Store

If you want to go back as far as the 1940s (and stop about the 1990s) then you should really love The Ten Penny Store.

It’s one of the most popular places to buy and sell clothing in the city and everything is really well curated to provide a consistent vibe.

We like how timeless everything feels here and how it’s super easy to match these vintage pieces with our modern wardrobe items. They really know how to accessorize.

Address: 250 North Broadway, Denver

Check out The Ten Penny Store here.


Mercer Place

Mercer Place

If you need cash in a hurry, Mercer Place tends to pay upfront for your items rather than making you wait until they are resold – however, you should know that this means they aren’t quite as generous with how much they will pay.

They have a really good children’s department though and are one of the best places to shop for men’s stuff in the city. Thrift stores could work a little harder to cater to men, in general, we feel.

They operate reduce hours on a Sunday but are open 7-days a week for your shopping convenience.

Address: 1388 South Broadway, Denver

Goldmine Vintage

Goldmine Vintage

They’re are all about the “vintage” at Goldmine and you definitely won’t find modern designer brands on the shelf, unless it’s a piece from the Victorian Era sold by the same brand a hundred years ago!

We love the fact that everything here is unique and the owner hand curates every single piece to try and ensure that they offer a thrift store experience that really stands out from the rest.

This is the kind of store where you can easily lose the best part of a day browsing the rails and trying different things on.

It’s places like this that turned us into thrifting fans, read our confessions of a thrift store addict for more information on our “habit”.

Address: 227 Broadway, Denver, Co

My Best Friend’s Closet

My Best Friend's Closet

With a discount of up to 75% on the retail price of any item, this is a great place to work on your personal style while preserving your cash flow.

Most of the pieces here are designer labels, so bear that in mind when you go in – you get bargains here but not everything is “cheap”.

They have four locations across the city but our favorite (and the largest) is on Northfield Boulevard. They open (and close) late on Sundays but are open 7 days a week.

Address: 8316 Northfield Boulevard, Denver
