I guess that most people would consider this store “bottom-of-the-barrel” thrifting and they would be right … but it was soooo much fun to find name brand items for only $1.75 each!
I got 15 items for $28.42!   (hey, I have 4 kids!)
Jen got 8 items for $14.72!

 TIPS for Shopping @ Houston Family Thrift Outlet Store:

  • There are not ANY dressing rooms so go prepared to try on clothes over whatever you are wearing.
  • Thursdays are busy but the first day of new inventory
  • Be OK with things being disorganized.    You might start down a row that is labeled  “children’s pants” to find out after 3 feet it is now adult women’s blouses.    Dresses were in 2 different sections of the store.
  • There is Definitely an OVER ABUNDANCE of screaming children!!!!!   Their parent’s don’t hear them so I guess that means everyone else in the store should not hear them either.
