Faith Farm

Faith Farm is some sort of religious rehabilitation center (for recovering substance abusers?) in Ft. Lauderdale. It also happens to be a great thrift store, in particular, maybe the best place for used furniture in driving distance. Two buildings and a large outdoor area hold crazy amounts of furniture (and lots of other stuff), and there’s more coming in all the time. As with any thrift, the best time to go is in the morning.

Sofas under an overhang. Upstairs, there’s a whole huge room full of sofas; this is just the overflow.

Cabinets, bookshelves, and dressers as far as the eye can see (a wide-angle lens would have shown a lot more).

Another covered area outside with dining room tables, bed frames, and coffee tables. It’s particularly easy to find a good dining room sets here.

There’s a huge patio outside with all kinds of stuff too various to describe. It’s well organized, too: here, a conglomeration of crutches. There’s also a whole separate building with new furniture downstairs and a regular thrift store section, with clothes, lamps, electronics, and whatnot.

    Reminds me of the Jewish one on NW 27 Ave and 50-something street. Love that place. Love my parents for introducing me to it when I was a teenager.
