I really really love to thrift! Its like therapy for me. I make it a point to look for thrift stores whenever I move before anything else (i move a lot since my husband is in the military). From the ones I have been to so far in Washington, DC, Indian Head Hwy Thrift is my absolute favorite. They have color tag sales (50% off, and usually more than one color tag is on sale at any given time, particularly on Saturdays when up to 3 tags can be on sale) everyday. In addition, they offer 25% off to military with id. They have an awesome selection of just about everything, but so far I have done super well with toys, i mean top of the line expensive toys. I have bought Chicco, Fisher-Price, Vtech, melissa & Doug, , Leap frog, and a whole lot more, the most i have spent on a toy is 3$ on the Chicco farm (which was brand new in packaging). The area can be a little intimidating for some, but do not let your prejudices lead you wrong... the staff is AWESOME, and so is the community. I love that they have a HUGE parking lot, and if you take public transportation the bus leaves you like 100 yards up the street.
