Great Thrift Store. Huge area of everything under the sun that you'd expect to find in a thrift store. Good reasonable prices. Pleasant staff. Can't ask for anything more. Though most items are in special sections or shelves there are also many items tossed into bins. Overall the store is well organized, clean, etc. There is plenty of free parking either on the lot itself or on the streets nearby. (someone else here gave it an insulting one-star rating, thinking this was a pawn shop...it IS NOT a pawn shop, it IS a thrift store and there are no bars on the window as the other reviewer stated...they obviously got their wires crossed because directly across the street is a pawn show with bars on the windows and it's called.......altogether now...&quot;MR. PAWN&quot;....and it is at 10507 International Blvd, not 10500 International Blvd, which is where Gateway Thrift Store is correctly listed_
Vinyl (LP) Record Hunter's Delight. If you love looking for used LP's (vinyl) you're gonna love this place. Huge selection at incredibly low prices. I go to a lot of thrift stores and this one has one of the biggest collections and seems to continually grow in size & they are also among the lowest priced I've seen in thrift stores. The selection varies from mostly good to lesser, with many in excellent condition. Well worth the trip to spend a couple of hours rummaging through various shelves and boxes full of records. And, as another reviewer pointed out...this is definitely a thrift store, not the pawn shop which is across the street and not affiliated with this thrift store. And, being a thrift store it has everything else you'd expect to find beside the great LP collection I usually focus on when I go.
This upscale & friendly thrift shop looks more like a gift shop. Their displays change weekly, if not daily. Items are artfully arranged and the shop is clean & bright. And your dollars go to support Children's Hospital Oakland & Research Center
