Value Village in Suitland is a great place to browse and see what you can find. It's a very large thrift store, selling mainly clothing but also carries children's books (one of our favorites), toys, and electronics. Their pricing is reasonable and many times you can find very nice brand name items. On federal holidays they have a sale where everything is half price, but be prepared to be there for awhile, as it get very crowded and lines are very long for the checkout. They take credit cards as well as cash which is very convenient, especially if you want to make a large purchase.
