I know that a lot of you are interested to hear about the thrifting here in Vegas, so I got off my butt and out the door to check out five more thrift stores for you!
First up : Goodwill #67 located at 3700 S. Maryland Pkwy
This is a brand new store that is located at The Boulevard Mall. I had high hopes for this store and well, I was kinda disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, this store definitely has it share of ‘treasures’…just not in the right place!
For example :
I found this beautiful men’s double French Cuff shirt ($5.99) in the women’s section.
The pricing on their items has a lot to be desired too.
For example : the price on this brand new WHBM jacket.
Umm, yeah. :-(
I found the pricing on the name brand clothing to be exactly $5.00 higher than Savers. THAT, combined with the 30 minute drive to get there…well, I’m not sure if I will be going back to this particular Goodwill any time soon.
Unless you are coming into town to go thrifting with me.
All that being said, my husband was super excited to score :
two brand new bluetooth keyboards for our phones at $2.00 each. They retail new for $30.00 each. They work really well, by the way.
Those two boxes? They are Technology kits from The MGM Grand with every cord you could ever need to charge something.They sold new for $22.00 each. We paid $2.50 each because it happened to be 25% off Senior Day. By the way, you have to be age 55 to get the discount and they DO check your ID.
Here is their everyday sale schedule :
On our way home we happened to come across a Savers located at 1100 E. Charleston Blvd. Two things : I find the Savers here in Nevada to be dirty and twice now, I’ve witnessed people getting into serious shouting matches inside the store.
Putting my fears aside, I scored :
this super cute Alfani (Macy’s brand) tunic top.
I am beyond super excited about this next item.
A Desigual skirt! This is a Spanish clothing brand that shows at NYFW. The skirt is super unique which means my husband doesn’t like it.
Here is Savers everyday sale schedule :
The next day I roped my dad into checking out :
It is located at 390 S. Decatur Blvd. I like the fact that it is located in a strip mall with lots of parking. The store is huge BUT the clothing section is really small. :-(
The store runs really good sales :
We went when it was the 50% off First Friday Sale. I expected the store to be packed but it wasn’t.
My dad scored these sunglasses.
for a whopping 51 cents!
I only found 4 things worthy of trying on. BTW, the dressing rooms here are really nice but you are only allowed to take in TWO items at a time!
I went home with this J Jill lightweight jacket.
It doesn’t look like much on the hanger, but no worries. I zhuzhed it up when I wore it.
A couple of days later, while out with my husband I came across three more thrift stores. He only let me go to two of the three. Sorry Savers!
First up : Epic Thrift store on E. Tropicana
I wasn’t impressed with the clothing but I was only in the store for 15 minutes. However, I was impressed with the friendliness of the employee that greeted me when I walked through the door.
Here is what their sale days are :
Lastly, I checked out the Goodwill located at 3345 E. Tropicana. Similar to another Goodwill I have been in, the aisles are too narrow for more than one person at a time to fit down the aisle. Ugh…
Unlike the Goodwill I first mentioned, the pricing here was more in line with other stores. I only spent 15 minutes here too but I found two super cute skirts that would have went home with me if they had been my size.
Gap skirt for $7.99
Loft skirt for $3.99
There was a super cute Banana Republic skirt there too.
Are you enjoying these reviews? Are there any particular stores you want me to go check out? When are you coming to Vegas to go thrifting with me??
