Thrift Town!

September 20, 2009

Thrift Town!

South Austin is home to many thrift stores, and two sound very similar and are around the corner from each other- 1 on Stassney and 1st and the other on Manchaca just south of Stassney . They are, respectively, thrift land and thrift town. Do not be confused. Thrift Town is both Thrifty and Chic. Thrift Land is… well, just thrifty. I arrived very late in the day yesterday and found them well stocked with great clothing finds. Banana Republic slacks in perfect condition, ironed and pressed with the crease still in them for $7.99! At Banana Republic, I found a similar pair for $98. Okay and now to the organization of the store. These great slacks were found on the “Better Clothing” rack. Thrift Town brings out the good stuff and displays them, (by size) on the better clothing racks. Genius right? And they organize the other racks and shoes by color and size. I was only there for less than an hour and found about 4 items worth taking home with me. Now, the furniture was pretty scraggly, but I am more than  happy going somewhere else for that.
