First, the cons of second-hand shopping: You have to dig, you have to go often, and to do both, you must have extreme patience — and loads of spare time.

But the pros far outweigh any negatives because you can score screaming deals on one-of-a-kind treasures at resale stores.

Everyone knows about Goodwill and Salvation Army and Buffalo Exchange, our very own homegrown store that’s expanded across the country, so we’re focusing on those local, lesser-known places, most of which were suggested on Facebook. We’ve categorized them into what kind of shopper will love them most.

Happy hunting.
