Best Thrift Store

Fred & Betty's Thrift Store

As an avid thrifter, I've personally vetted nearly every shop in town, and I always find myself going back to Fred & Betty's. The store is clean and organized, the prices are clear and reasonable, and there are thrift gems galore—the thrifting trifecta! Some of my favorite pieces I've snagged at the Higuera Street shop include a set of jade green glass plates, vintage sunglasses, and a brand new pair of Saucony wool sneakers, which just goes to show the range of items you can score at Fred & Betty's. Plus, you can feel good while you shop, because all proceeds benefit SLO Classical Academy. Yay education!

ACE IS THE PLACE You can get anything at Miner's Ace Hardware. Tomato plants, a coffee maker, canning supplies, tools, wood, a Yeti cooler, outdoor furniture—anything. Maybe that's why Miner's consistently wins Best Hardware Store year after year. And this year it won Best Nursery/Garden Store, too. - PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

Miner's Ace Hardware

Need a new house plant? A hyper-specific type of screw? Some ant traps? Look no further than Miner's Ace Hardware. With locations sprinkled throughout SLO County (Nipomo, Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, Morro Bay, and Atascadero), the friendly staff at Miner's are eager to help you find the missing piece to your latest home improvement project. Personally, my favorite part of the store is the plant department, featuring a wide selection of healthy house plants like monsteras, fiddle leaf figs, and snake plants. Miner's has been in the community for more than 65 years now, and its superb customer service, fair prices, and wide selection show why it's a clear winner.
