Thrift store shopping brings a magnificent place, filled to the brim with endless possibilities that are just waiting to be re-imagined.
Navigating the racks, shelves, buckets and piles of pre-owned pieces can be overwhelming for any casual shopper, but for me, it’s where I thrive.
Thrifting has become a popular choice for many shoppers especially for ones like myself looking for their next creative or vintage new style.
Thrift shopping is very cost effective, finding valuable items for next to nothing, help the community and they transport you to another time- one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
Come visit Sleepy Poet Antique Mall located in Charlotte at 4450 South Blvd and 111 West Main Ave in downtown Gastonia are filled with 250 local vendor booths.
Both are open on Monday through Thursday from 10 am until 6 pm, Friday through Saturdays from 10 am until 8pm and on Sundays from 12 pm until 6pm.
The Sleepy Poet Antique Mall sells everything from Antique Furniture and Vintage Clothing, to Mid-Century Modern and Classic Home Decor.
Shop the racks from their Vintage Clothing and Jewelry to their Antique furniture. You will surely come across something valuable that will grab your attention and add an extra something to your wardrobe and home.
So, plan a day or on your next weekend off, make a trip to Charlotte/Gastonia Sleepy Poet Antique Mall; where there is no rhyme or reason, just cool stuff to check out!
