Mountain Equipment Recyclers

The perfect combo: consignment bargains on an excellent inventory of outdoor equipment from a Colorado Springs business with a heart. No more paying full price for sporting goods, plus 50 percent of sales of donated items go to local nonprofits, some that help military families. merecyclers.com

 

ARC Thrift Store

Be patient, shopper. Give yourself plenty of time to go through racks of stuff because the eagle-eyed bargain hunter can walk away with designer items and never-worn clothing straight from the Colorado Springs stores. On Saturdays, all items are 50 percent off. There are other days to watch, including Senior Citizen 50 percent off Tuesdays. arcthrift.com

 

South Broadway Antique Row

Pull into a free - really - parking place and put on your walking shoes. Set out on a stroll of seven blocks near downtown Denver and drool over an intriguing collection of specialty shops from vintage to retro, Bakelite to roller derby. Clearance sales are gems. Catch lunch at the perennial favorite Blue Bonnet Restaurant. antique-row.com

 

Goodwill Denver

You've probably heard the mantra: frequent the Goodwill stores that are closest to the posh, upscale neighborhoods. That said, it's a fine idea to visit the Leetsdale Drive Goodwill in Denver. It's the store nearest the tony Cherry Creek and Country Club areas of town. The finds there can be spectacular. goodwilldenver.org

 

The Free Box

The ultimate in recycling and so very Telluride. Not using that cashmere sweater any more? Oh so tired of that boring, solid-white bone china? Just tote it all over to The Free Box cubby wall off Main Street and give it away. See something more to your liking? It's yours. The unspoken rule: no junk, nada, big faux pas. visittelluride.com
