I never drive into Dade City, Florida without stopping by Solutions Thrift Store. I've been shopping here for years and have always found some nice things
It is run by Sunrise of Pasco County ,
a domestic violence and sexual assault help center. :(
Breaks my heart these places are necessary,
but rest assured, when your money is spent here,
it helps fund a much needed organization.
It seems they have been bone dry lately, which may be a good thing, I don't know. Maybe it means they are selling everything quickly. Or maybe it means they are receiving fewer donations. :( Maybe fall and winter is low donation season for them. Do the snowbirds make big donations in the spring right before they go home? Which ever, they don't have near the selection they used to have. HOWEVER, I still find good things and it's always worth a stop and quick dig. I do think the prices on their glassware/kitchen stuff is high sometimes. The prices on their books just went up (too high, IMO), but I try to remind myself that these prices are probably fair, given that books are so expensive now, and my cash is going to help someone.
Does this shirt not rip your heart open?
I wonder if a child made this in therapy through Sunrise, or something. It made me so sad.
The store is always clean, well organized and the people are very sweet and helpful. Never really ran into anyone rude. The clothing and shoes are always clean. I can't remember ever being grossed out here. LOL
I usually will spend between $10 to $20 a visit. I very much appreciate them taking debit cards as I never, ever carry cash any more. (I should, but I don't).
|$20.00!! How Floridian. Wish I had a place for it. It's kinda cool.|
|I am in love with these yellow glasses. Love them. I've had my eye on them awhile. |
They are $1.00 a piece. And I don't do yellow.
Therefore, they have not been purchased by me. Yet.
|So I thought the braided little girl holding a baby was interesting. It was marked 1971. |
Not my style, but it was sweet. Liked the white frames. The small one went home with me.
|I had to take a picture of these comfy slippers. They remind me of my Great Aunt Edith. |
She taught me to stand on my head when I was 3 or 4 years old. LOL
|They always have something on sale.|
|Albums are affordable but books went up. The books are nice though, |
not messed up and dirty, so it's worth a peek.
