Shopping secondhand is not only earth-friendly, but you can find beautiful, one-of-a-kind home items — many times for a steal. Check out these area secondhand shops for inspiration.

THE COZY HOME

Owned by a mother-daughter team, this standout consignment shop has gently-used furniture and home décor. They also offer home staging services — so they know their stuff when it comes to design. The showroom is arranged in attractive vignettes with unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. Pick up a splashy Marimekko tray, a midcentury modern sofa or unique lighting. thecozyhomemadison.com

AGRACE THRIFT STORE

With three area locations (plus an additional one in Janesville), this affordable thrift shop has home goods for a steal. The Stoughton Road store only sells furnishings and home items, so stop here if you want a wider selection (the other locations also sell clothing). agrace.org/thriftstore

DANE COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY THRIFT STORE

Like many thrift shops, this one also benefits a good cause — Dane County’s furry friends. Find home goods, men’s and women’s clothing, and of course, pet supplies. giveshelter.org/our-services/thrift-store

GOODWILL

A thrift store standby, Goodwill has several Madison-area locations plus outposts in the suburbs as well. We love their mission of providing employment and opportunities to differently-abled people and those with life challenges. goodwillscwi.org

SIMPLY SAVVY

Find furnishings, lighting, décor pieces and art at this Middleton shop (they also sell clothing). Items are accepted on a consignment basis. simplysavvyconsign.com

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL THRIFT STORE

What’s fun about “St. Vinny’s” is their themed sales — staff gather up items such as LEGOs, designer goods and vintage kitchen items for special events that make thrifting a thrill. Shop seven Madison and surrounding area locations. svdpmadison.com

BOOMERANGS RESALE STORE

This northside store has housewares, clothing, jewelry and gently-used furniture. The shop’s proceeds benefit Door Creek Church Ministry as well as other local organizations on Madison’s north side. boomerangsresale.org

ICONI INTERIORS

Owned by Coni Marotz, this huge shop sells new furnishings and home goods plus reclaimed and consignment home items, too. Marotz’s polished design aesthetic can help you create a truly one-of-a-kind space. iconiinteriors.com
