I’ve found some great deals on vintage Salt Valley shirts, Adidas workout gear, and discovered one of my favorite denim jackets at this store. For wrestling fans, I also came across a Batista t-shirt at this shop and it remains solidly in my outfit rotation.


The story also offers some home decor, kitchen utensils, and furniture. You could spend hours exploring all the Sunshine Thrift offers.

Avalon Exchange operates multiple locations across the country, and its Tampa spot is filled with treasures. World tour tees, Dr Martens, Nike Dunks, KITH, fresh jackets, and classic NBA and NFL merch are always rotating in and out of the shop.

It’s also a great spot to sell some of your old clothes if you have a few pieces you’re looking to part ways with. Just one quick scroll through their Instagram and I’ve already picked out 5 shirts I want to add to my collection.
