View Full Version : Hilton Head Area Thrift Shops/"Antiques"

We will be heading to Hilton Head from Savannah. Are there any thrift/junk/consignment/antique shops along the way? Interested in ocean/seaside type stuff to help decorate my "ocean" bedroom in Iowa!

Thanks for any help.

There's a Wyland art gallery just down from the resort. If you don't want to spring for an original piece of art ( the $5000+ can hurt LOL) they have limited edition prints as well as some small monocrome prints from about $30. It's worth a visit just to look at the pictures :D

Hilton Head Thrift Shops

On Hilton Head Island there is the My Sister's Closet Consignment shop on HW278 down toward Sea Pines Circle.

There is the Gullah Flea Market just as you get on the Island (near the turnoff to Hudson's Seafoods), also on HW278 and full of Junk, but tastes different. It's a big long white building.

There is a Goodwill store by Sam's Club.

There is a St. Francis Thrift Store on HW278, can't remember the address.

There are a couple of antique stores, and consignment shops around the corner from My Sister's Closet, go toward Sea Pines and take the first right.

The Library has used book for sale and art work by local artists.

If you go toward the toll bridge from Sea Pines Circle there are two consignment shops to the right before you get to the post office - I think one is called Grannie's Attic (not sure).

The Bargin Box is a rumage sale sponsored by the Presbyterian Church on HW278 down about the turn of the island. It is open on M-W-F from 2 to 4 PM I think. This is a major event and you have to get in line to get in. They only let about 100 people in the building at a time, and as one comes out, one is let in. Two out - two in etc.

Hope this helps.

In addition to what's already been mentioned, you could stop in the town of Bluffton. It is the area on the mainland, just off of Hilton Head. It is right on the way to the island. Take Rt. 46 off of 278 (the main drag that you'll need to be on to get to the island) and just follow the signs to Bluffton. There are many, many antiques shops, art galleries and other interesting boutiques. It's really an unpublicised treasure. They are all within walking distance of one another, and the town is very, very Southern in its' feel and appearance. There are even a couple of cafe's and working artist galleries, so you can chat with some very interesting local artists and other folks.

Thank you to everyone who told me where I could shop for local "junk."
As they say, one man's junk is another man's treasure.

The great people on the DIS/DVC board also told me about some good locations to find stuff when we were in Vero Beach earlier this year.

If you ever have the need for tractor seats or farming tools, just contact me and I'll help you out! :)
