Best Thrift Store for Fashionistas: Tampa: Soho Sal's

OK, so it’s actually called the Salvation Army store — on MacDill in South Tampa. But with its Italian marble floors, lounge area with stuffed couches and juice bar, this is a Sal’s Army like you’ve never seen. OK, so it actually looks like pretty much any other Sal’s Army store — the point is that it’s in South Tampa, where many well-dressed, well-off people just might look at that couture gown or Armani suit and mutter, “Oh, this old rag,” and bring it down to the drop-off. You can find upscale stuff here — not all the time, but occasionally you can really score.2815 S. MacDill Ave., Tampa, 813-839-3730.
