Even thrift-store junkies have to admit that secondhand stores carry the aroma — if not the downright stench — of dust, dog hair and human secretions best left unidentified. Luckily, when it comes to clothes, a pass through a hot wash cycle or a sewing machine can do away with the previous owner's indiscretions. But those touch-ups aren't as easy when it comes to a loveseat. For shoppers who don't want to worry about disinfecting a used couch or duct-taping the limbs of a barely standing bedside table, Second Chance Thrift Store has furniture that doesn't immediately betray its past abuses. This red-roofed warehouse on Wornall has an entire room dedicated to immaculate dining sets, dressers of all sizes, and mattresses that don't look like an invitation to contract an STD. Sure, that forest-green leather sofa or seven-piece cherry shelving set might cost a couple hundred bucks, but it's still a whole lot cheaper than the low-quality items available at soulless big-box retailers. And all the profits from Second Chance support the City Union Mission, the largest shelter for Kansas City's homeless.
