Pick Of The Litter recently re-opened on August 27 at their new location in Newport after a nearly 6-month long hiatus. The thrift store spent much of the pandemic moving out of their old location by the Lincoln County Fairgrounds and getting everything organized at their new location at NE 1st and Fogerty Street.
The volunteer-run thrift store is now open for business again with incredible bargains on everything from clothes to home goods. The best part about scavenging for treasures here is all of the proceeds directly support Friends Of Lincoln County Animal Shelter.
Like most thrift stores, you never know what you’re going to find at Pick Of The Litter. Take a walk through the several aisles of cheap clothing or grab a pair of shoes off the $2 rack. Those with kids can find entire outfits for children for under $5.
The store also has an eclectic mix of home goods, kitchen items, arts and crafts supplies, and shelves filled with books in every genre. Music, including records, CDs, and cassette tapes, can be found here as well as games, movies, and pet accessories.
Every month, the store offers 50% off a new color tag. This can give you even bigger savings off the already-super-low prices. They also offer huge discounts on holiday items and specials such as “fill a bag for $2” with clearance clothing out front.
You can find the new Pick Of The Litter location at 558 NE 1st St, Newport, OR. They are currently open for limited hours Thursday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Because they are operating at limited capacity in the store, we strongly advise to plan your visit on a weekday to avoid having to wait in line.
