A wonderful thrift store with fun daily and weekly deals
This is a great thrift store, my favorite thrift store in fact (and I'm a ""thrift store connoisseur."") They have a wide selection of clothing that takes up most of their floor space, as well as textiles, toys, games, books, records, tents, baby gear, dishes, collectibles, knick-knacks, and just about anything else you can imagine! Their clothes are generally very fairly priced, and so are their baby items and appliances. Dishes can be a little hit-and-miss on pricing, as can a few larger items. Books are a little to the expensive side but still a good deal compared to new. As in any thrift store you have to wade through some less choice items to find the good stuff, but that's part of the fun!
The store can look a little gloomy with its warehouse style and fluorescent lighting, but hey, it's not there to be stylish. It is clean, well-organized, and fun to shop. The best part is their deals; Wed. and Sat. until 1 pm all items in the clothing department except for those with a certain color of tag (different colors of paper tags are stapled on) are half off. Be warned, though, Saturday the crowds pick things over pretty well by noon. Wed. is a better day for the half-off deals. Thurs. is Senior Day and those over 55 get half off, too. In addition, every day two colors of tags are selected to be half off. Look up at the large hanging signs as you come in to check what color is excluded from the Wed./Sat. deal that week and which are on daily special.
Because people from some very affluent areas donate items to this store, there are some real treasures! Make sure that you check out the back room, where all the large items are kept. Restrooms are not marked with signs, but are accessible to the public behind a door on the wall past the book section. Profits go to a good cause (The Catalyst Foundation), and one can happily browse this store twice a week because they have such rapid turnover.
