‘Yard sale pickers’ open new Barnwell thrift store

For those of you who like to wheel and deal, there's a new store in town that may pique your interest.
Déjà Vu, a thrift store, opened Aug. 10 in Barnwell off Hwy. 278. It's behind Barnwell Academy's new location just north of Nappier Road. There's a big sign with the store's name right before the drive.
The store is owned and operated by Stephanie Hutson and Debbie Carroll, both Barnwell natives. The two said they've been buying and selling items at flea markets and yard sales for years.
"We're yard-sale pickers," they said about turning others' old possessions into profit.
"We love to do this," Carroll said, adding it's more than just a hobby.
The store has "anything and everything." Clothes are the only items with a set price; everything else is negotiable. Hutson said they plan to start selling appliances soon.
It took a couple of months to get everything ready before the store opened, and Huston got the idea for the name from a simple Google search for good names for a thrift store.
Carroll and Huston said they enjoy meeting new people and know how to treat customers right.
The store is open Mondays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
