1/2 price day SATURDAY and SUNDAY at CAP thrift store!

 Wow, what a sale! Be in line at 10 am Sat to start saving money and support shelter animals like Peanut here and Sweetie below.

1/2 off on just about everything in the store and did you know they even have dressing rooms?

Items come in every day, it's exciting to see the new things. It's also exciting to watch folks when they find something they have been looking for or are surprised with a good deal on something they hadn't even thought about. Become a regular, we like them!
Peanut above is still waiting for his permanent home, he is about 6 lbs and has 2 less than perfect knees but gets around just fine. An angel vet donated his neuter, thankfully.
Sweetie the pit mix truly fits her name and just got adopted at CAP. Dr Randlett at Kingsland Blvd Animal Clinic donated her spay, our many thanks to her.
Your donations and shopping at the CAP thrift store support not only dogs, but cats, birds, guinea pigs, lots of rabbits and other pets at Citizens for Animal Protection.

Beautiful furniture in year end donations at CAP thrift store

There is a wide variety of furniture styles and prices currently at the thrift and variety is one of the main reasons we shop!

This loveseat is a modest 40.00

Isn't this table stunning? The bottom shelf is a heavy mirror and the top glass is also very heavy. The donors said its original cost was 1500.00, it's 600.00 at the thrift. Not a scratch anywhere and its quality shows with a closeup view.

This desk is only 80.00 and would pair nicely with the oval table below.

This lovely dresser has a mirror surrounded by wood attached to it; a better picture can be sent by request. I can visualize this also being repurposed as a desk and the mirror mounted on a wall nearby. 125.00

This dresser/jewelry  topper has been relisted as I gave the wrong price-it is only 60.00.

This picture has been enlarged to show the neat work done on the edges and to highlight the wheels! The table is only 80.00

The thrift store has only 2 multi, multi,(LOTS) tasking employees; a dedicated cadre of volunteers also puts in many hours keeping up with all of the incoming and outgoing items.
The thrift store is open 7 days a week as well.
Ellen is the expert on hanging pictures and Olga does many of the specialized displays and is the color coordinator. Keith helps with many of the heavier items and assembly. Volunteers are always welcome, a variety of tasks are needed.

Please share this blog with your buds. The primary source of sharing the blog has been Facebook, so please share there as well as any other way in which you interact with folks. Please also let them know there are SEVEN 1/2 price days in December; almost everything in the store excluding furniture.

All proceeds benefit the animals at CAP, which is now at I 10 and Barker Cypress.
The thrift store is at 11925 Katy Freeway, Houston, Tx. 77079

Luxury in a thrift store? You bet, at CAP thrift store!

 This sofa is absolutely stunning! I wonder what the donor move UP to, if this was recycled. It is in excellent condition and not going to be marked down, so find a truck and hurry to get this jewel! The camera did not capture the richness of this sofa..or maybe the camera operator.....400.00

This unusual pictorial rendering of a parrot did not come in with the sofa but would look great above it or near it. It is only 80.00 and is as stunning as the sofa.
It is high up on a back wall at the thrift store so look for it and see how well
the pairing would be. It is difficult to showcase the quality of paintings, pictures and mirrors in a photograph, this needs a personal visit.

Several regular customers collect shell items so I hope they see these shadow boxes. On the back wall above the stacked pictures and frames, they are 8.00 and 10.00.

For all of you animal lovers out there, here are lots of collectibles in a range of prices. The best part is, none of them need heartworm or flea prevention or even litter boxes!

Sunday Nov 6 is 1/2 price day! Most items really 1/2 price.

Also the thrift store will be collecting dry puppy and kitten food for the shelter pets from now until Thanksgiving, please help feed an orphan.

Please come and support the CAP thrift store

Some eye catching things at CAP thrift store


Bright colors abound in the CAP thrift store these days. The great segment on TV sent a flurry of donations, so bring a friend for some great deals.

Every Tues in November there is 50% off any ONE item under 25.00.

There are THREE 1/2 price days as well. Downloading the calender has been a problem, but if you email me it can be sent individually.

This large sweater is in the mens section, but it would look good on a woman as well. It is only 4.00!

All, proceeds benefit the animals at Citizens for Animal Protection.

This large soft sided suitcase is only 25.00. Save money while holiday traveling this year. 

This unusual tray is multipurpose and deceptively sturdy-only 6.00

Sister, one of the resident cats says "Don't even think of buying anything in this stack.
There are great buys all over the store. Now scram!" :)

In a do it yourself blog recently there was a neat way to make a faux transom with a long mirror turned sideways and painted strips of wood applied to it.
These pillows attached in a line in a similiar fashion would make a nice, inexpensive headboard!
Only 4.00 each

HUGE suitcase in excellent condition, on wheels, pockets everywhere, only 45.00

1/2 price day at CAP thrift store TODAY!

Ok, they let Hendricks think you are shopping just to keep him in this lifestyle, but you are actually helping lots of shelter animals. Four adult cats live at the thrift store and there are usually kittens in foster cages for adoption;100% of the proceeds benefit dogs, cats, birds, small mammals, even reptiles at times.

At times people will say "Is that cat real?" Hendricks says "Don't get between me and the food bowl or you will get hurt" :)

 This ringneck parakeet was adopted recently at CAP. Birds and bunnies require not only dry food but fresh veggies as well.

Anna is undergoing expensive heartworm treatment before adoption. Unlike many other shelters and rescues, CAP arranges for experienced foster homes and treatment so adopters are not faced with a sick dog and  expenses. Your donations and shopping at the CAP thrift store supports this extensive work.
The 3rd Thursday of the month is 1/2 price day. That's today! That's almost everything in the store-just a few exceptions. Check it out.

A Houston blog for Do It Yourself ers  is a delightful blog by an interior design consultant in the Heights. Reading back posts made me think "She needs to know about the CAP thrift store for great buys". With some kind of special every day and open 7 days a week, it's a wonderful place for DIY ers.

Several professional home stagers also frequent the thrift store.

In one post, Christie shows where she enhanced an outside area with a mirror and showed where she got the idea! Read that, then visit the CAP thrift store on Friday, Sept 23rd when mirrors are 1/2 price. You might find an unexpected find for your patio or pool area.

I am having difficulties downloading the calendar, so here are the specials fo rthe next week:
Sun 9/18-all lamps 1/2 price

1/2 price day at CAP thrift store Thursday Sept 15th

A store full of great buys awaits you tomorrow!

Everything is 1/2 price, but what caught my eye today in particular is a whole section of small appliances.

From a bread maker, to microwaves, bagel toaster, waffle irons, a new set of those clay pots for making bread, all are there. Many of these items are novelty, not used often so we don't want to spend a bunch on them..Wow, on 1/2 price day they are a steal! The bagel toaster is only 5.00, the waffle iron is only 4.00.
There was also a toaster oven and a couple of toasters. Be sure and look up over the sink area to the left of the appliances. There is a long shelf full of
other kitcheny items:)

Books, furniture, Halloween items, lamps, shoes... and all nicely stocked in categories  as well as 2 dressing rooms..
