Thrift and Consignment Shops - excluding Detroit

Would welcome your suggestions for great thrift and consignment shops throughout Michigan with the exception of Detroit where I will not be travelling; I will, however, spend time in some of the northern suburbs of Detroit. Am primarily interested in misses dressy clothes, sportswear, and shoes (I take a the hard-to-find 10 S or N). Thank you in advance!

Knowing exactly what cities you will be in might help narrow it down. "Northern suburbs" can cover about 700 square miles.

Salvation Army stores are the most frequent ones you will run into. Others can probably tell you better on the quality of merchandise.

This list of upscale shops covers all the ones I can think of (I shop the Northville one and agree with its description so I'm using that to assume the other descriptions are as accurate):

Depending on who has donated recently, the Ann Arbor PTO thrift shop can have fantastic clothes at fantastic prices (or not):

There are a few other resale shops right along South Industrial in Ann Arbor near the PTO shop so you can get in and out quickly.

I have a friend who swears by this store, but I have never been:
