I used to love this store, but over the past year the selection seems to have gone downhill. On the racks while I was in store, DIY projects were priced well above reasonable for items fraying and self cut that were not finished and would fall apart with washes. Another item had visible damage and was not marked as is (if I remember correctly it was 10+). Not a lot of selection differences, mostly denim coats, t-shirts, and most sweaters leaned more towards grandma than trendy vintage. The plus size section was lacking and mostly filled with 3x+. On the plus side, staff is ALWAYS friendly and lovely to chat with and the store is quite clean and organized. The shoe selection has also improved a lot, but not enough to negate the other issues. Unfortunately the selection just doesn't garner me traveling as far as I usually do to look. (1+ hour out of town) Hopefully things will look up with newer donations!

Love Rumors! They have GORGEOUS, high quality clothing and I find unique, well fitting pieces every time I go! The associates are also the absolute friendliest and I have always felt incredibly welcome shopping there. The gender-neutral organization makes it easy to find your style, too!

I was in a rush to get out the door to work and forgot my work clothes hanging on my bedroom door. As I live almost an hr away, this was the next best option, and they had what I needed to get through my shift, but I was pleasantly surprised by the vibe of this place. Not your run of the mill thrift store. I can't wait to bring the wife back with me she is gonna love this place.

I absolutely love this store!! I come here to sale clothing items I no longer wear and get a pretty good amount of money back. I also love coming here for their jewelry, everything is so unique and trendy at a good price. I definitely recommend

The best thrift store I’ve been to in Durham!! They have so many high end brands for really affordable prices. I found perfect Madewell jeans for $26. The staff is so friendly too!!

You can find vintage clothing, clothing and accessories made of mesh, party dresses, sweaters, jackets, pencil skirts and lots and lots of crop tops. You will very very few modern full-length shirts for women. The selection is good for the items I listed above, but since I want to wear a normal full-length shirt, I’d probably not return here.

This place has the BEST vintage drippy clothes for affordable prices. My jaw dropped a few times when I saw a price tag that was much lower than I expected!

As an avid secondhand buyer, this is definitely my favorite place ever. Such unique pieces and reasonable prices. It’s a must-go place in NC!

Love bringing clothes in to sell & then using store credit to buy new to us items! It’s my teen daughter’s favorite store - we always leave with always a unique treasure.

This place was very unique. I go to a lot of thrift stores but this ones a bit different. It has a lot of vintage stuff but also has stuff for a wide range of aesthetics. Definitely check this place out of you like eccentric clothes and accessories.
