Antiques & Thrift Shops
Certainly shopping can be about buying--but much of the fun comes from the thrill of the hunt. When you shop at the mall and other major retailers, you pretty much know what you are going to find. But the joy of shopping antique stores and thrift shops is that you never know what kind of treasure you may stumble upon.
Raleigh, N.C., has an abundance of out-of-the-way discount and antique stores to put fashionistas on the scent. Bargains, one-of-a-kind antiques and unique finds are easy to find here.
