ooooh, i miss htown! born & bred, but i'm currently in london for university.
thought i would share some of my favorite thrift haunts:
for those of you on the northside, there is a NAAM & Salvation Army on W FM1960 (Spring side) that we used to go to all the time. And for crafters, NAAM usually had sewing notions, yarn and materials. And their prices were pretty decent. SA prices are typically though the roof, but they have a good selection of books and homewares. On the East side of FM1960 (Humble side) there is a Goodwill Superstore off the 59 feeder just south of 1960...it's kind of hit & miss. There is also a HAAM off of Old 1960/First Street in Old Humble.
If you travel down 59 S a bit, there is a fantastic Family Thrift Center off of Little York a block or so from the feeder (past the flea market). And there is a Value Village down Tidwell which is also great for clothes.

I miss Houston thrifting! The charity shops here aren't even half as good. It's so funny, because  at some of the big vintage clothing shops in London you will find items that still have their Value Village tags on them, alot of them from Houston area stores! So that's where all the good stuff goes. Wink

Hey! Sorry gone for so long, just closed a show, and have been busy.

Heres some fun news you crafty Houston divas!

Are you familiar with the houston chronicle style/shop girl? My friend and I have had this idea for a while to do a thrift/sew/craft challenge with the chronicle shop girl. She met her rep today at work and pitched the idea, and I think they are going to launch it!
Who wants in!!!!
This could be a regular column, wooohooooo!

Hiya, Houston native & resident here too. I saw a link to Stitch n Bitch - I'm a regular at the Central group, anyone else ever go? I think I need to check out some of the other crafty events too.

I sort of wish I dug on thrifting, but I go for shiny and new myself - though I can really appreciate what cool stuff could be found. Actually, I saw a tutorial for a game-board book here some time ago, and have been looking for a cheap used Scrabble board ever since...maybe it's time I actually tried a thrift store instead of HPB!
