Grand Opening – Style Encore

Oh Spring of ’14, we hunger for you We’ve had sleet around here and low temperatures too We’re tired of our sweaters and want to clean out Were it not for the bluebonnets we’d really have doubt That warmer spring temps are truly here to stay That we can pull on the shorts and go […]

Savers – South Lamar

Our eyes spoke volumes to one another and I felt electricity when our fingers touched…                                                                                                                                                                                                                         his name trembled on my lips as he tenderly relieved me of my box…                                                                                                                                                                                                                    then Paul spoke the five little words every girl wants to hear:                                                                                                                                                                                                             Thanks For Donating To Savers! Oh my! The Thrifty Snicker has been reading […]

St. Michael’s Academy Thrift Shoppe

Just as spring flowers are popping up all over our fair city, so are new thrift stores! The Thrifty Snicker seems to be noticing a new one every time she gets into the thriftmobile and takes a drive. Your bargain blogger will most certainly be getting the scoop on the new shops on Stassney, east […]

Flashback Vintage

In addition to this post’s review, the Thrifty Snicker has bad news and good news. First the bad….practically ripped from the headlines the Thriftstress was dismayed to see that our friends at Next-to-New on Burnet (reviewed May, 2013) have been the victim of vandals here recently. It’s a proven fact that the surest way to […]

Thrifty Chicks Vintage

Before she gets to this review the Thrifty Snicker would like to address a few of the questions that have come in midst an avalanche of fan mail. The burden of fame rests as lightly upon her shoulders as her latest thrifty acquisition: an Anne Klein cashmere sweater! Q: When are you going to review […]

St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store

A thousand pardons for the inexcusable delay in this most recent posting but The Snicker promises she’ll take good care of you this year. May 2014 bring you a bounty of bargains! Now for you Willie fans, ditch the ditch […]

Treasure City Thrift

The Thrifty Snicker should know better.  Time and again she’s dropped into Treasure City Thrift only to leave empty-handed and a bit disappointed.  Was it the prices?  The clutter?  The modest size of the store, which translates to minimal merchandise?  Obviously it was the store’s fault…and Her Thriftiness was on the verge of writing it […]

Pumpkin Patch Children’s Resale

Of course the Thrifty Snicker loves children; she just can’t eat a whole one.  Darlings, she’s only kidding and like you, has several adorable moppets on her gift list this Christmas.  The quickest and thriftiest way to check off those holiday shopping tasks is to head over to the Pumpkin Patch Children’s Store on West […]

The G-Spot

Dear Ones!  Your bargain blogger humbly apologizes for the delay in this review.  She so proudly posts on the 10th and 25th of each and every month and somehow the time just flew by!  Perhaps some of it can be blamed on the time she spent admiring her newest thrift acquisition – a fabulous silk […]
