Programma

A great thrifting trip is all about the thrill of the hunt! Finding the great scores happens early, so we'll get energized with coffee or a snack at our meet-up point, then walk or take public transit to 3-4 of the best thrifting spots in Chicago and spend ABOUT an hour at each. Each spot is at top of my list when I'm looking for my next favorite item. Not only is thrift shopping great for your wallet, but it's sustainable for the environment! This tour is intimate and interactive so get ready to chat and thrift with folks who's tastes and lifestyles are completely different from your own. Making new friends is encouraged! Locals are welcome: this tour ain’t only for tourists! This is not a vintage tour.

A successful thrift adventure requires vision to see the unique possibilities in an every day item - the right styling can transform something you'd initially pass up. That's where we come in! We are available to help scour the racks, give advice on how that leather jacket or platform shoes look or happy to let you do your own thing! As your experienced tour guide, I will make sure you go with a new favorite item.

*If you are interested specifically in vintage finds, please check out my "Hidden Vintage & Boutique" tour on AirBnB!

Carrie is an avid thrifty deal-finder! My eye for detail, patterns, unique items and my ability to see possibilities in something that others might pass up make me a great guide for Chicago's wealth of hidden thrift store gems. A few of my favorite finds include: period glassware, funky ugly pottery, unusual mirrors, vintage fabrics and floral print dresses. I’ve styled each of my Chicago apartments with a tasteful eclectic blend of one-of-a-kind finds.

Jacob knows how to spot a designer garment from 100 miles away and is an expert scarf tier. He loves pattern, color, and an unexpected twist.

Luogo

Each location we’ll journey to is one of my best-loved "thrifting gold" locations. The tour encompasses a few of the best thrift destinations within easy walking distance or public transportation of each other and appeal to a variety of tour guests. This is not a vintage tour. The city is chock-full of even more hidden gems, so IF YOU ARE AN EXPERT THRIFTER, please ask for my private Chicago Hidden Thrift Tour map. The tour is mostly clothing.

This was a great way to explore the city and find some great deals while doing so. It was a great way to spend a few hours on a Saturday.

Jacob was super friendly and knowledgeable about the local thrift scene. He was a quick study with understanding my style and finding awesome picks for me in the stores. I also loved that we went to a variety of stops—some Salvation Army-type stores and some “trendier” thrift shops. Overall it was a great experience!

Jacob!!! was so sweet and attentive to detail. Funny and a great story teller. He made sure to talk to everyone as we migrated from location to location. I love how he pumped us up the day before and asked us questions to get to know us better. ❤❤❤

Thanks Jacob! I found very cool looking clothes! I just did not have enough time in each store to shop and would love to get more personal advices on my style and choices. Otherwise it was a great experience! I enjoyed it.

Our group was led by Jacob and we had a fun day exploring Chicago! We hit 4 stores and I found something at almost all of them. We did go to one that was a bit higher priced than the rest which wasn’t really my cup of tea, but thankfully there was a second store in the vicinity that I was able to find some great stuff at. Jacob was very knowledgeable of the area and made sure we were all together when we moved from trains and busses

This was a fun way to see parts of Chicago I’d never been to before. Jacob was a great host/ guide and the stores all had a lot to offer. It was fun shopping for ourselves but also keeping an eye out for things other people in our group were looking for. I would highly recommend this experience to both first time thrifters and experienced shoppers.
