My Review of the Goodwill Thrift Store on 701 Newman Drive, Austin, TX

My Review of the Goodwill Thrift Store on 701 Newman Drive, Austin, TX

I love to visit thrift stores when I am in different towns, they always vary from styles to prices.  While in Austin recently I decided to look in my phone for the closest thrift store and this Goodwill came up.   It does not have the “normal” Goodwill look and it was smaller than any other Goodwill I have seen, so I was tempted to not go in BUT ….. this little gem is FULL of amazing name brand things!

I am going to compare these prices to Houston (where I live) and everything was a few dollars more than I normally pay.  That is why I LOVE going to San Antonio Goodwill…. they are a few dollars less on everything than Houston prices!

 The Austin motto is “Keep Austin Weird” sooo when we checked out, with a HUGE, pile of stuff the checker just looked at me …. and I was waiting for her to bag it.  Finally she said “We don’t DO bags in Austin”

Hmmmmm …. nice … at least post a sign!

I get the whole “Go Green” effort, believe me … I was born in raised in Oregon and I have recycled my whole life.

(I have bags in my car that I would have brought into the store)
