The Mid-Ohio Valley is full of hidden thrift stores that perhaps you may not have heard of. Thrifting can be a great way to save money or discover vintage looks you can’t find anywhere else. A lot of times you can find items that still have tags for a fraction of the price.

I was introduced to thrifting when I took a 4-H project called Savvy Shopping, where you tried to make cute outfits for the absolute lowest price possible. I instantly fell in love with thrifting and also how much extra money I had in my pocket!

I went on a thrifting adventure in the Mid-Ohio Valley to share with you some thrift stores! On my journey I found some thrift stores that have just recently opened, so hopefully you will find one that sparks your interest.

Change of A Dress

187 Front St Marietta, OH 45750

(740) 373-2450


The first store I went to was Change of A Dress. I have shopped at Change of A Dress before, so I knew I had to stop by. They have women’s clothes and a “Teen’s Closet” which features junior sized clothes. Change of A Dress isn’t technically a “thrift” store, the women’s portion of the store is consignment and the junior’s side is resale. They also have a variety of shoes, jewelry, and handbags. Lots of items still have tags if you take the time to look. This store also has a lot of name brand clothing and you can’t beat the price.

Stormy’s Consignment Boutique and Thrift Shop

26918 State Route 7

Marietta OH, 45750


The next place I went to was Stormy’s Consignment Boutique and Thrift Shop.

Stormy’s is a brand new consignment shop in the MOV. They have only been open for a few weeks, but have a lot to offer. They are selling women’s and junior’s clothes and have lots of trendy pieces. They have shoes and handbags as well. Plus, they have a beautiful vintage wedding dress in the window.

Simply Seconds Thrift Shop

206 Putnam St

Marietta, OH 45750


This was my first time shopping at Simply Seconds. Simply Seconds is unique in that they have men’s clothes. They have a good selection of dress shirts and jeans, so guys head on over! Simply Seconds also has women, boys, and girls clothes. They also have a few household decorations and handbags.

Newstart Thrift Mart

2504 Grand Central Ave, Vienna, WV 26105


Newstart Thrift Mart has a large variety of women’s clothes and shoes. They also have a nice selection of antiques, including plates, bowls, and kitchenware. You can also find books and children’s toys. If you like antiques, this thrift store is a definite stop on your list!

Too Small Shop

1100 Murdoch Ave, Parkersburg, WV 26101

With new items arriving daily, Too Small Shop is a must-stop if you are thrifting! Too Small Shop has a large selection of clothing, including women’s, juniors, and child clothes! They even have a special wall for trendy name brand clothes (Hollister, VS Pink, American Eagle, etc.)! They have a large selection of prom and formal dresses as well!


Hopefully this post inspired you to check out a local thrift store in Marietta or Parkersburg! Remember, you don’t have to be looking for anything specific. You may find something really unique like a new pair of Snakeskin cowboy boots!
