Bridge House Thrift Store: Bridge House is a remarkable New Orleans institution that primarily offers individuals seeking recovery from drug and alcohol addiction the time and structure needed to begin a new life. They also happen to have two thrift stores featuring a wonderful rotation of home furnishings for a bargain. 

You’ll find their locations at 4243 Earhart Blvd. and 7901 Airline Drive.

Floor 13, formerly Canal Furniture Liquidators is another great spot for furniture finds. In their own words,  they “buy and sell pre-loved furniture.” Find them at 400 Jefferson Hwy.  

Seasoned: Seasoned’s inventory is a bit more specific than the rest of our list, as it only sells second-hand kitchen items. They’re on the pricier side, but this store is just too cool for us to pass up. 

Seasoned sells vintage cookware, both online and at their brick & mortar location at 3824 Dryades Street. If you’re looking for the coolest cookware in the city, Seasoned is your spot to shop.
