Second Place: It's Chic Again

Third Place: Clementine

Billing itself as Richmond's Progressive Bargain Store, Diversity Thrift — now with a second location called DT2 — does things a bit differently. For one, it's painted in bright rainbow colors, and it's run by the Richmond Gay Community Foundation, which uses the profits for grants to organizations such as the Fan Free Clinic, the Richmond Organization for Sexual Minority Youth, Equality Virginia and Meals on Wheels. The place can be a picker's dream — crammed with incoming stock of furniture, clothes, electronics and bric-a-brac. "Our store isn't pristine, it's more eclectic," says Diversity Thrift's president, Bill Harrison, "but we have a strong following." Meanwhile, out in Midlothian, the upscale designer shop It's Chic Again! woos customers with a sleek array of slightly used designer clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories. And in Carytown, Clementine offers up new and used designer wear (clothes, jewelry, accessories) for a slightly younger crowd.
