Thanks for that thriftshopper link it is great.
I'm really sad Embarrassed about Mobile thrift stores. I'm from Denver, CO and thier are so many. Also did some time in Phoenix, AZ which is also plentiful. What's a girl to do in Mobile? I hit the few that thier are often. I'm always looking for a good size piece of fabric or a linen to re-vamp.
Good luck cheesbro and happy thrifting! Cheesy

I realize this is an old thread but in case you are still interested there are a lot of small but good Catholic charity thrift shop in Mobile. I can't think of any of the names off the top of my head but if you still want to know I can look them up. Better send me a PM in case I forget to check this thread.

in Foley the waterfront mission is...well...okay I suppose.  Most of thier stuff is wayyy overpriced ( for example last time I went there they had the same chinsy computer desk I bought from walmart a year ago and it was obviously "well loved" and they were charging more for it than I paid for it brand new)
But, it does go for a good cause,

They do have some nice stuff in there though, new beds and new furniture and all.

The salvation army in Foley is pretty decent.

I'm used to having more options though, When I lived in NY there were thrift stores EVERYWHERE.

I've mainly been relying on craigslist though since I've been here.

There used to be a great big giant store way up on schillengers road in mobile called America's Thrift Store but just recently I drove past and it was vacant?
I can't imagine they went out of business, they must have moved but to where?

Also, Saint Vincent De Paul on Broad street was good but I don't think they are there anymore either.  The neighborhood was kind of rough, I hope they moved.

The Nothing New Shop is run by a Catholic Charity and its good as far as price but it's so small.

The waterfront mission in Mobile is the same way as far as pricing.  High!
The salvation army is there too on Dauphin St. but I haven't been in there in years.  I guess I need to try to make it in there one day. 

There used to be lots of options in the Mobile area I've just lost my grasp on the scene because I live in Pensacola but I travel back and forth a lot and would love to know if I've missed that treasure chest waiting to be found?

I found one that rules!!!!! YAYYY!

It's called Reruns and it's in Foley.  It's about a mile from my house, so I adore it.  It's right on 59, and it's got a 10 foot tall sign that looks like a kitty out front.  It makes me smile.

At first glance it looks like a furniture resale outlet, until you dig deeper and go meandering through the back areas.  I recently talked them out of thier entire record collection ( close to 500 records) for $20.00.  I'm a huge music nut and I've been collecting records for a few years now so I was ESTATIC.

The ladies there are AWESOME and they're down for haggling, I even got a really pretty king size quilt brand new for $22.50 and it was marked at $90!  ( hooray 75% off!)

They've got quite a selection when it comes to blankets, sheets, pilliows, suitcases, kitcheny stuff, and some crafting supplies.  My husband is only allowing me to go there once a month though, which I suppose is smart on his end or we'd be completley broke before this kid shows up.  I get to go once a month and spend $100.00 and in there, thats AWESOME.  We left with a van load of stuff last time.

But yeah, check it out, it's my new favorite place.
