TWO 1/2 price days at CAP thrift this week

Both Friday for Chinese New Year and Sunday for football spouses, CAP thrift store  is having 1/2 price days.



They had a record breaking month in December for sales: more customers means more people hearing about the store and so donations continue to increase.  You can help by spreading the word.
 There are specials every day; stop in to get the February calendar.
 There are items in every category from kitchen to designer clothes, shoes, books, art work and fun things outside!


The three pieces of furniture shown here just came in so haven't even been priced. They are featured to show the quality of items that get donated to benefit homeless pets. (A few things are not ever half price and furniture has to be in for 30 days to be considered.)
The CAP thrift store is open 7 days a week at 11925 Katy Freeway, Houston, 77079  281-497-7559.

Extend the holiday "layaway payoff" generosity

So it is way too cold today to be looking at Prom dresses; let's think of it as planning ahead.(The nice thing about this blog is that you are armchair shopping anyway.) One purpose of this post is to help some senior girls save money on the Prom or even enable some girls to go who might not be able to afford it otherwise. If you know of such a senior, you could buy her dress, hire her for some small jobs that need doing to buy one or share this with her. 
This chiffon is elegant in its simplicity-not quite orange, not quite red. Size 12
40.00
A second reason is to appeal to the young girls who like the "green" or recycling part of resale.The CAP thrift has several 1/2 price days each month,so they can save even more. Its not too soon to plan for May.This strapless cocktail length dress
is custom made and only 15.00. size 14

Once the all important dress is picked out, there are still several months in which to shop for shoes, clutch and other accessories.
