"Hannahs"  in Grand Prairie.   The proceeds go to the women' abuse center.  I love that place!!  They have a  3bin 25cent each thingy,  I buy lots of stuff from that to re use for the fabric for purses.

I live right between Houston and Austin (gotta go to Houston  Wink) and I second the ones mentioned already, but I also love small town shops!  The antique stores of course have tons of great stuff, but why do they have to be sooo expensive?!  I don't go to Goodwill--, they always charge at least twice as much as they should, and the money goes to red tape... Don't get me started.  I like the Faith Mission in Brenham, called Higgins Branch.  Tons of clothes, for 25 cents to a dollar, even got a pair of like-new shoes there for $1.  I get tons of kids clothes, books, kitchen wares, belts, purses, games, oh so many things there! They even give some stuff away when you buy things.  CHEAP, and they money goes directly to the mission for homeless shelter, domestic violence victims, etc.  I also give all our unneeded stuff there.  Also in town is the "Thrift Store" store, almost all clothes, and GOOD stuff, too.  Great prices, about $1-5 for anything.  They run an end-of-the-month sale every so often, where everything is 50% off or more.  Once found a three shirts for a dollar sale.  Can't beat it!

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.

This one is called "Resale by CCA" and it is definitely my favorite thrift store of all!  There's an isle with nothing but craft supplies and some of them are down right vintage.  I've bought a quite few vintage crewel kits for a couple bucks each or less.  I check this store at least once a week to make sure I don't miss out on any good stuff.  CCA also has two more locations, one on Main Street in The Colony, and the other on Mill Street in Lewisville where their organization headquarter is located.  The one on Mill Street is their version of 'discount store' and I believe everything in the store is under two bucks!

I really like the New Beginnings Resale Shop in Garland off of Buckingham as well as Texas Thrift which is off of Walnut.  There of course there is Thrift City 2 off of First St. and then the Salvation Army Thrift Store off of Garland Rd.  All of these are within about 5 miles of me and I love them each.  I do like the Goodwill on Shiloh and Buckingham because it gets a lot of Target things and I love Target.  In fact, yesterday I got a blanket there that my hubby and I had registered for last spring to get for our wedding ($60 at Target) and I only paid $14.99.  I was doing a happy dance of course.

So I'm new to the area of San Antonio .I actually live  on an airforce base. If you can get on the base. The thrift stores are pretty eclectic .With family's moving every three years we also tend to get rid of items  often .You find items from Japan Germany Iraq,you name it .  San Antonio is the first base where I found mini little thrift store outside the gates of our base. Most of them also sell tones of trinkets ,fabric ,jewelry from the many military travels .Whatever the case in or off the base here in San Antonio we have 3 or 4 bases .I will venture out and get back to you on the other locations.

As clear as an unmuddied lake, Sir.
