Treasure hunters and secondhand seekers alike know the warm, tingly sensation when they find a true honey pot (aka—the land of sweet deals), and Fred & Betty's is just such a spot. Their large, open storefront boasts gently used clothing, housewares, furniture, and a trove of odds and ends from vintage to still-has-the-tags-on new. Their setup is ideal for shoppers. Shelves and clothing are neatly arranged and intuitively categorized—no crammed shelves or dusty piles in this place! This nonprofit is a do-good company benefitting SLO Classical Academy, so shopping here helps the environment by reusing and repurposing items and it helps kids out as well! That's one shopping spree you can feel good about.
