Who said looking fabulous meant breaking the bank? I have not been thrifting before because I honestly never knew where to go or “how” to “thrift,” but I gotta start somewhere! I thankfully had the chance to get acquainted with TaNisha Prater, co-owner of Thrift On The Avenue while exploring. She and her husband, Christopher Prater, have put a lot of time into curating the shop and happy to be a part of the resurgence of Detroit. They have been in business for about 2 years now, expanding from a Pop-up Shop to a permanent location in just four months; the two owners definitely enjoy watching their business and others around them evolve.

Thrift On The Avenue is located in Midtown and not your typical retail shop with having so much to offer. From women’s and men’s clothing, shoes and accessories, to the ambience itself you are definitely bound to find some very stylish apparel and enjoy the hunt of finding the perfect bargain as well. Their merchandise comes from donations, local shops, and even other fashionable areas beyond Michigan. They don’t just sell anything though; they pay very close attention to the details of the clothing, yet they are not exclusively into labels either. They just know style! And offer affordable and great price points for their entire inventory.

The shop itself speaks for them and their commitment to offering the latest styles and fashions. It presents a beautiful aesthetic with a neighborly and welcoming vibe to go with it. Thrift On The Avenue also has continued partnerships with Coalition On Temporary Shelter (COTS) and Dress For Success Michigan by having portions of proceeds from sales and donations support these non-profit organizations and what their missions are. Thrift On The Avenue should definitely be on your shopping list! Check them out and tell them you read about them in The Social D!
