Best Houston Thrift Stores
Here are a few of the thrift stores in Houston that I’ve been visiting on the regular, it’s a question I get all the time so I thought I’d go ahead and share my current favorite Houston thrift stores.
Family Thrift Center ()
I have consistently found amazing finds at this Family Thrift Center in Houston, from Alexander McQueen boots, Gucci Wallets, several NEW Tory Burch shoes, Coach bag galore, Burberry button down tops & 3.1 Phillip Lim tops and a jacket. I also find home goods here tons, copper measuring cups, marble canisters & lots of Restoration Hardware kitchen goods.
Goodwill Houston (9625 North Sam Houston Pkwy E, Humble, TX 77396)
I always have the best luck with kid’s clothing here, I am usually finding Hanna Anderson, boden & other favorite brands of ours here. And I’ve found awesome women’s clothing here (lululemon, vintage Valentino, St. Johns)
Family Thrift Center Outlet ()
I just love the Family Thrift Outlets in Houston for the most amazing deals! Everything starts at $2 and goes down a quarter each day until it resets & they restock on Thursday. Recently I found a beautiful red vintage jacket with a rabbit trim collar, a few pairs of UGG boots for my daughter (in excellent condition & they’re so easy to wash!) & such a great option for work wear on a budget.
Three Tips For Thrifting
The biggest complaint I hear is that someone doesn’t have a good thrift store near them & then I ask how often they go…they went once. GIRL. I go a few times a week, that’s the only reason I find so many amazing things. Don’t expect to find gold by going once. End of story.
Give yourself time
Don’t expect to go in & out in 15 minutes, give yourself maybe a hour. It takes time to sort through the junky items to find those jewels. When short on time I head straight for shoes, bags & home goods. Make a game plan & stick to it.
Give yourself a budget
I am constantly asking myself is it worth the price tag. You won’t catch me paying $9 for a Target dress, I mean…I could have went to Target. I’m looking for the magical pieces that their retails tickets would have me saying NOPE. Ask yourself time and time again, could I get this for the same price somewhere else? If so, put it down because you can get amazing items for pennies on the dollar.
