The salvation Army is no longer in Carlsbad. But there is a C.A.R.C. farm place that is great to buy cheap , used clothes. Also the Cat's Meow.

Why does everyone live in alb or sf???

in ruidoso i recommend the pink ladies aux thrift, and the humane society too. first baptist church in the downs is getting there, but one of the ladies brings her dog. i LOVE dogs, but I don't want someone else's dog germs on my stuff. I have enough dog germs of my own to deal with!!

anyway, I just wanted to get rui on the map!!
pm me if you are ever in the area!!!

Yay ABQ/NM representing! Um I nearly always go to Thrift Town, they are really clean and orginaized (by size than color) and I got a $50 pair of pants with tags still on them for $5.95 there once so i will always love them for that. I agree that Buffalo Exchange is not the place to buy stuff you are going to rip up, but you can find some snazzy deals there... sometimes. I never go to Goodwill because all of their stuff is a bit pricey... Saver's is too but I will go there in a pinch because it is a lot closer to my house than thrift town... There is also a Family Thrift on Juan Tabo (1201 Juan Tabo NE, 87111) you can find some deals there, although it is a bit unorganized. But yay for Thrift Stores and yay for ABQ/NM!

He wraps Himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide and trembles at His voice... How great is our God!

PM me if you would like to trade something knitted for a size 12-20 Built by Wendy sewing Pattern... never been used!

this is a great thread. I am hoping to visit NM this year, and will be on a limited budget for spending, but I love to find stuff I can recycle to use in my crazy quilting, quilting or atc's/mixed media

Animal humane in Albuquerque also has a thrift store. Theres also one on san mateo called safe house it's for battered women. Theres a ton of small thrift stores in abq if you just look around. The big ones like savers and goodwill mark their prices up alot but if you ask sometimes they'll lower the price. My girlfriend talked a savers manager into lowering the price of a dresser by $20 so it's do-able. It would be cool to start a local craft group though. I would be down to join.
