NOT your average thrift store!

A move within the same center triggered a neat "makeover" for the CAP thrift store and not ONE penny was used from the shelter. Hershey Grace, the head poobah, tortured a slew of her friends to donate so no funds would be diverted from caring for the animals.
The reading area has even more book cases out of sight, too many to get in a picture. You are welcome to hang and read and there is coffee often for a small donation as well as sweet goodies from time to time, not your average thrift store!

This sturdy rattan chair is 60.00 and does not include the cat. They have their favorite places, but obviously adaptable, as inventory changes rapidly.
At this thrift, there are many sections, not just a glass section, for example. These shelves are almost totally shells, so if you are
looking for shells you don't have to dig thru a bunch of other stuff.      This rug is only 40.00. It is 7'8"x11'2".

I have not been able to find any other thrift in Houston that has a blog, so if you know of one I'd like to network with them, Please subscribe and forward this to your buds, you can save animals and money at the same time. It's clean, organized and remember, has 2 dressing rooms. Don't forget to donate as well for a tax deduction.

Open 7 days a week at 11925 Katy Freeway, Houston, Tx. 77079  281-497-7559

Blogging about neat stuff at the store to save you time and money and support animal rescue!

These two mirrors are 20.00 each-the one on the left is 16"x20", on  the right is 12"x12"

It is very hard to take a picture of a mirror!
This ornately framed mirror is 24"x36" and is 40.00

This is my favorite mirror in the store, crackled finish.20.00

This neat mirror would look good at a beach house or a beach themed lanai!         

There are many others including a free standing blond wardrobe mirror that is 17" x 62" for only 25.00 that did not download.

Save LOTS on Prom dresses at CAP thrift store!

Just in time for the Prom, CAP thrift store has a wide variety of both long and short dresses.
The best part is that none of the dresses featured here are over 50.00! Some are as low at 20.00.
There are some slinky shoes to go with them as well.

Since the thrift has moved into its new space in the same shopping center and jazzed things up a bit, there are now even 2 dressing rooms, so no guessing if something fits. The employees will also give you their opinion if you give them the chance:)

100% of the proceeds go to benefit the animals at Citizens for Animal Protection. This includes not just dogs and cats, but bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs and small birds.

Some of the dresses are great for "after 5" happenings as well.

The CAP thrift store is located at 11925 Katy Freeway in Houston, TX. 77079 and is open 7 days a week.

Welcome to "This Houston thrift store benefits animals"

This is just an example of the great deals you can get at the CAP thrift store, 11925 Katy Freeway(77079) here in Houston. A stylish pet barrier in excellent condition. for 100.00; in this case the new price of 150.00 is on a flyer.

If you are new to this thrift, it took over the space where the CAP shelter was until they moved a couple of exits down. The thrift consolidated the 2 areas into one large space and added new paint, flooring and is looking fine!

The thrift features furniture, other household items, clothing, collectibles, you name it. All proceeds benefit the animals at the shelter so you are encouraged to both donate and shop.

I will be blogging about several "new" items at least twice as well as specials. For example, one day  the special will be all lamps 1/2 price.

Please subscribe and tell your friends!
