“Retha’s “Can’t Miss!” Thrift and consignment shopping excursion”

By: Retha Wilson


Retha is a life-long resident of Dunn and a medical technician at a local pediatrician’s office where she meets and greets a lot of Dunn’s young citizens. She is also a Mom to three avid sports fans and a LOVER of good deals.

Saturday Morning:

Triangle Waffle

We’ve got a plethora of antique and thrift stores, consignment shops and boutiques in our area. I recommend that you start your morning with a delicious country-style breakfast, at the Triangle Waffle House– a local favorite! Don’t worry, if waffles aren’t your thing, you can get eggs, bacon, grits, toast – all prepared in short order fashion to your liking!

Saturday Morning:

Saks Thrift Avenue

Just two doors down on Cumberland from the Triangle Waffle House, is “Saks Thrift Avenue” – yes, it pays homage to the famous department store, but this Saks is a place to get a bargain! It really has everything under the sun. Two whole buildings filled, wall-to-wall with the most amazing assortment of great deals on house goods, clothing, wedding dresses, rugs, furniture, you name it!

Next to Triangle Waffle – right off of Cumberland. 107 S. Sampson Ave.

Sunrise Antiques

Next stop is just down the road off of Cumberland and a hop skip and a jump away from the Dunn Tourism office. Sunrise Antiques is a 15,000 square foot building with an amazing collection of antiques, collectibles, and furniture. It also has one of the largest selections of used furniture throughout central and southeastern North Carolina. Is this heaven or what?

Saturday mid-morning:

My Best Friends Closet

For some high-end fashion in Dunn, next stop is My Best Friends Closet, a designer resale boutique – which the local area ladies love! They’ve got a great selection of designer bags, formals, and accessories. They have over 50 consignors with new things arriving daily – so it’s a regular stop for me!

Saturday afternoon:

Norris Frozen Custard

It’s time for lunch and to relish all the treasures and finds that you likely found this morning! For over fifty years, they have been a local favorite in Dunn. Hotdogs with all the trimmings are their specialty. I used to go there as a little girl, and you could get ten hotdogs for one dollar. With inflation, it’s now two for $1.89. The taste is still the same!
