Since a disappointing experience with my go-to large-chain thrift store, I decided to make a concerted effort to visit “little” thrift shops and review them on Yelp since that’s my go-to resource for making consumer decisions. I started with an excellent thrift stop at the Peacock Boutique Thrift Shop, then headed to Bibles for Mission Thrift Store on 15222 Stony Plain Road.
Turns out there are several Bibles for Mission Thrift Storesaround the country and their mandate is to use thrift store proceeds to provide Bibles for people.
Considering how much I like Bibles, I’m a little ashamed to admit this is the first I’ve heard about either of these organizations. (Insert sheepish smiley.) Anyhoo, like other non-profit thrift shops, there is a mix of employees and volunteers.
The Coach shoes are a Thrifting Hall of Fame score!! Aside from that, prices were low to reasonable. The scooter was $15 – maybe a little high considering the brand and condition, but for the amount of joy it brought my son, it was totally worth it! The staff were not too chatty and my sister did get hit on by a quite likely drunk guy but otherwise the experience was good and I would return to the Bibles for Missions Thrift Store to browse for more Coach shoes whenever I’m in the neighbourhood! Find my Yelp review here and add yours if you stop in!
Those prices are crazy and one of the reason I will not pay over 15.00 for anything clothing wise second hand as yes you are supporting non profit but it didn’t cost them anything to receive it so there’s no need to charge thoughts crazy prices
wow – you are on a thrifting odyssey! LOVE LOVE LOVE that shoe holder…never seen anything like that before;
now i will not rest till i have one!
hall of fame score, kids happy, sister getting hit on…..i’d say this was an epic stop
cant wait for the next installment
