REVIEW: The Cottage Thrift Store Shop in Houston 

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:  

  • Monday: 50% OFF on Regular Clothing
  • Tuesday:  50% OFF Housewares / Electronics / Jewelry
  • Wednesday:  No Sales
  • Thursday:    25% OFF All Boutique Inc / Purses / Regular Clothing
  • Friday & Saturday:     25% OFF  Regular Clothing / Boutique Clothing / Boutique Shoes / Housewares / Furniture

    I have been shopping thrift stores in North Houston for a while. When I read your review, I thought I would make the trip to visit. We went on a Monday so all of the “non” boutique items were 50% off and we made a haul for $15. Great selection of shoes and I thought even their boutique items were reasonably priced. Very much worth the trip to town. I can’t wait to see your next review.
