A Houston blog for Do It Yourself ers

Christiechase@blogspot.com  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
Mon 9/19-everything outside 1/2 price
Tues 9/20- 1/2 off any one item-25.00 and under
Wed 9/21-all glassware 1/2 price
Thurs 9/22-all silver pieces 1/2 price
Fri 9/23-all paintings, pictures, mirrors and frames 1/2 price
Sat 9/24-designer clothing, white tags only, 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..
