For three years running, our readers and editors have selected their favorite thrift stores and discount shopping destinations for this annual list, and even though this was the third year in a row for Flower Child, it’s almost like selecting a brand new store in first place.

The Short North staple relocated to East Fifth Avenue back in September, taking over 30,000 square feet of space in an older warehouse, tripling the size of the facility. Owner Joe Valenti told CU in an interview that the space naturally allows for better parking and logistics, but also helps his business serve as a destination, attracting customers from all across the state who want to spend longer amounts of time browsing all that Flower Child now has to offer.
