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

Great Thanksgiving meal accessories at CAP thrift store

This petite themed gravy boat is perfect for small holiday get togethers. Ladle opening is in the back. This is only 9.00!


This serving tray is decorative as well as sturdily functional and only 10.00.







These vibrant colors owe nothing to the photographer or camera; these medium sized plates are really that eye popping! Equally eye popping, they are only 2.00 each. The smaller square leafed saucers/coasters/multipurpose pieces in the back are also only 2.00 each as well.








These gold chargers are simple in design, so can be easily paired with other chargers in gold or other colors. They are only 8.00 because there are only 7 of them, so a great buy for a small gathering.









This fall/Thanksgiving arrangement is only 30.00



Hurry to the CAP thrift store to grab those last minute touches to a perfect Thanksgiving Day meal.

Tuesday one item per customer under 25.00 is half price.

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.
