I'll vouch for the Bon Ton Shop outside of Waxahachie.  That place rocks!  Definitely worth the drive!  It is hands down the best vintage shop I've ever been to- and the fact that it's out in the middle of nowhere (it literally is in a town one block long) somehow even makes it cooler.  The upstairs level contains a fantastic selection of vintage clothes, but they're not all bargains.  Most are in near perfect condition, so they cost more - no thrift store prices.  But for what they were, I thought the pieces were worth it.  (More women's items than men's when I was there.)  I think they sell a lot of things to movie stylists - I stumbled onto this shop from a listing in an area film production guide.  They also have a nice selection of old books, records, and misc. stuff.  Go check it out, you won't be disappointed!

OMG!  Erin, I live RIGHT down the street from those thrift stores in Garland.  There are two pretty good ones at Garland and uh...Kingsley?  No....Yes.  Maybe.  Across the street from that really old cemetary, and there's an Aaron's Rental place.  But one is just called "Thrift Store" and the other (less impressive) one is The Salvation Army.

I'm also a fan of Vikon Village, a flea market at Jupiter and Kingsley, which if nothing else is full of bizarre stuff to gain inspiration from.  There's also another good one on Garland Road, but I can't remember what it's called.  It used to be the Lone Star Bazaar, I think.

AND HELLO, BUCHANON'S!  Tell me everyone here goes to Buchanon's EVERY MONTH.  You NEVER know what kind of cool crap you're going to find there.

there's a thirftstore in lewisville where i got a framed picture of the pope from the 60's.. it's called "resale", off of 121 business.

as far as vintage stores go, there's pandemonium off of henderson/knox in dallas, buffalo exchange off of greenville ave (some vintage), & loose threads & left handed monkey in denton. there's another in dallas near bill's records & tapes.. i can't think of the name, but there's another one somewhere downtown.

then ofcourse there's always thrifttown, psshh.

In Ft. Worth, we've got McCart Thrift that rocks.  It's very close to a super-rich district with lots of primadonnas who drop their clothes off there.  It's a hidden secret b/c you really, really have to be willing to dig...but man, is it worth it!

I always score something cool at "Thrift Town" in River Oaks.  (north of Fort Worth)

Well the thrift stores here in Corpus suck so far that I know. It's on Ayers down the freeway, and there's a goodwill on Kostoryz. I mean, sometimes there's good stuff. But I guess like with anything else you gotta look. I like Austin more, but unfortunately I don't live there and don't know streets.

I'm going to put in another vote for Treasure Box in Plano, that one rocks. There is also a Sal Army store in Garland with another just "thrift store" down the walk. I believe it's just on North Garland Road.. I'm not sure if the road name changes before or after the shops

edit: haha... already posted, man I'm lame

Oh you have to put the Style Depot...one of the most fantabulous stores in the Texas by far...just north of Waco off of 35. The lady who runs the place is the coolest and has the best selection of pearl snap shirts you'll ever find.
Yes! We try to stop every time we drive SA to Denton. They are so friendly and make wonderful conversation. Sometimes we forget to look at stuff....which there is lots and lots of. Awesome place.

Houston~ Theres a bunch i love off of Westhimer. I think it*s actually before Montrose, but everyone i know just calls it "Montrose". They have Taxi Taxi and Leopard Lounge (which have this "hollar for a dollar" thing every 2nd sunday of the month. On the porch, they have mounds of clothes for $1!! And i*ve found some cool stuff!! last weekend, i went for a pair of jeans to make into a bag, and i found some L.E.I.s that were my size and when i got home, they actually fit me pretty good!!! L.E.I. Jeans for $1.. Can anyone beat that deal?) Any ways, Buffalo Exchange, Wish (brand-new CHEAP), Recycle, Clothing exchange... ummm.. well, thats all i can think of for now.
oh, and i know someone said something about Value Village... Where exactly is that!! i*ve been meaning on finding out!!!
