Cvan's Cool Used Stuff
- Open Now
Lula Mae Johnson
I Cvan's! I always walk away with a few articles of clothing that are just right for me! They have a pretty good selection and I like how it's organized. The dressing rooms were closed because of the CV-19 stuff, but they had a big mirror up front by the window where I could try something on over my clothes to see how they looked on me. It really helped me decide and a the comments from a lady watching me try on a particular blouse helped me decide too.
FIRST off the staff is the friendliest of any thrift in town, They have all been there since it opened, They become friends. Secondly, the clothing is great and they don't put dirty, damaged or clothing with defects out to sell. The book section is superb with a wide range. They even have little benches you can sit and read. The knick knacks are very nice with occasional high end product. No reason to drive to Charlotte with CVAN in town!
Now this is the thrift store, where the ladies are always nice and polite, the store is really clean, the items sold in there, are cheaper than Goodwill, even smells better. Please give them a visit.
Great stuff, reasonably priced. Goes to a great cause too
I've been shopping/donating at CVAN for many years.Donation drop off is easy: just pull up, pop your trunk, and get your receipt. It's encouraging to see young men working/volunteering! The main reason I choose CVAN over other thrift stores is that they are truly non-profit and directly benefit abused women in my community. You can find brand new items with tags on or cool, vintage pieces. One thing people might not realize is that they are mindful about what they put on their shelves. I once overheard a manager and staff member discuss whether a certain book should be accepted. Due to the nature of their charity, they take care in what they choose to sell. I really appreciate their integrity. Keep in mind that most of the clothes are women's clothes if you're looking for something in particular. Fitting rooms are still closed, unfortunately. Highly recommend.
