Thrift Shop Row in Orange, CA

Thrift Mall Scores

Let's be honest.  When it comes to thrifting, no one shares where they shop at.  It's almost like asking for my social security number.  It's that serious.  I found out about "Thrift Shop Row" a few years ago from a coworker but never stopped by till last week.  There's about 4 thrift stores in the shopping center but only 2 are worth checking out.  Since I found out about the row from a coworker, I decided to pay it forward and share the information.  

The Sheepfold Thrift Store supports The Sheepfold which provides a refuge and shelter for abused mothers and their children.  The shop is huge!  They have daily specials - the day we visited, everything was 50% off.  Most of their selection is good stuff probably because people feel it's going to a good cause.  I saw designer bags (Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Coach), I wanted to peek at the clothes but because we were rushed on time, decided to look at my other favorite sections instead:  books, housewares, toys and art.  I found a box of never opened Ziggy Valentine's Day cards .50, The Social Customer book .50 (Brand new! This is on Amazon for $16!), 2 books for my 6 year old 2 at .25 each! and 2 frames for my Husband.  There are some great finds here!

Family Thrift is big too.  They have daily specials - we went on a Wednesday and all white tags were 40% off.  Also on Wednesday is buy 1 get 2 free (has to be same department and daily color tag special) - People were going crazy in there.  I managed to find 2 vintage dolls $1.91, Yashica Microtec camera $2.92 and 4 used place mats $1.51 (for product photo shoots).  I was bummed that it was one of those thrift stores that markup certain items.  Used vintage Tupperware and vintage Pyrex were overpriced.  I passed on a Jell-o mold and bowl.   I loved how they separated clothes by size.  Most thrift stores we shop at arrange clothes by gender and color.  This store had gowns, plus size, vintage and designer sections.  I saw an older wood entertainment center priced at $2.92 and the magazines were all recent issues at .95 each - It's definitely worth a visit.

Ha, you're right that no one ever says where they got their items...I always just figured it was because that made it a little too easy for weirdos on the internet to penitentially stalk them... Or, maybe that's just why I don't do it...

Don't be afraid to try everything on and to search for a matching item while you're in a thrift store. You might even be able to shop a full designer outfit together for much less than average retail prices.
