Orcas Island 2nd-Hand Shops
In the islands, it is important to "reduce, reuse, recycle," and shopping 2nd-hand stores is a great way to lower your impact on the environment. If you are just visiting, you might want to pick up a new (to you) outfit, beach blankets, picnic basket, utensils (to avoid having to use plastic), glasses, patio furniture and more. When you are done with the items, you can clean them up and donate them again. Each island has a small transfer station, and Orcas and Lopez have 2nd-hand shops connected to them. Or you can find treasures in several thrift and 2nd-hand shops in Friday Harbor, Eastsound and Lopez Village.
