I will admit I was told by a close friend years ago that this shop was overpriced so I have never bothered to stop by but after visiting the Cottage Shop Thrift Store, I AM the one who was missing out on a fabulous Houston Thrift Shop! The misunderstanding probably came from her going to directly to the “Name Brand Boutique” section, which is definitely eye-catching, and not going to the rest of the thrift shop. They have awesome prices and I bought 2 tops (at $3 each) and 2 jackets (at $5 each), they will be featured at a later date. I was salivating over a White Banana Republic Tuxedo Jacket but unfortunately its was a petite and too short!
The store is divided into 2 sections:
- Boutique, Name Brands to the left
- Regular Clothing Thrift Shop to the right
I will absolutely be back to the Thrift Store and I am sorry that I have been missing out on a Houston gem for so many years! This store is super clean, organized and the sales are worth the long drive.
They gave me a SALE flyer and here are the current sales:

Above all remember that all of your purchases and donations go to a FANTASTIC local community cause that helps women!
