Step right in….let’s SHOP!

I’m always bragging on my favorite thrift store, Hospice Thrift Store in Jasmine Plaza.

And I’m usually too interested in shopping to take photos!

But today, I shopped, took my purchases to the car and went back in for a photo shoot.

The ladies are always so sweet and helpful and the shoppers are friendly and nice!

(I shop there so much that I know most of them!)

The clothes are in such great shape and you can’t beat the prices.

And don’t you love the dressing rooms with custom art?

Everything is displayed beautifully.

And they price the furniture to SELL! This china cabinet had a tag, $135 and a BIG SOLD tag, too!

Of course you may remember I’ve bought furniture there, too.

I bought the Entertainment center that our TV is in, then went to the furniture store and bought matching bookcases!

The ladies were busy working but they let me sneak in the back for a couple of photos.

I won’t try to put names to everyone…

Definitely looks like the place to shop! Very pretty shirt and bag. I like the idea of the bookcases flanking the entertainment center. :-)

We don't have anything like that around here.

This is a really nice thrift store - so clean and tidy. There is a hospice one in another city 2 hours from me that is very similar. The china cupboard sure was a steal of a deal! Great photo of you!!

A nifty post Diane! Goodness, I feel (just a tad!) envious! What a lovely thrift shoppe...No wonder you cannot resist those bargains...

That is a nice clean neat place, Diane. You can tell that the items are well taken care of and that the item is clean and in good repair- xo Diana

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What a nice shop! We don't have any like this or with stuff priced this low. A shirt like yours would probably go for 12 bucks at the place I shop. So you got a great deal! I went thrifting today, too, and only bought a few books. Like I need more of those! Haha!

Donna said...

Good grief, if our thrift stores around here looked like that, I'd be there all the time! It looks spectacular!!!

Julie Corbisiero said...

Well that doesn't look like any thrift shop I've ever been too!
They've set it up like a boutique - what a great place to go bargain hunting!

I adore browsing thrift stores. We've only been in this town since June but I am slowly learning my way around. Hoping to find something pretty to put on our mailbox for Autumn!
You got some great deals and what a nice, neat looking store with friendly employees.
