I could call this “Austin Thrift Scene – Part 3” but that wouldn’t do this thrift store justice. Austin’s Thrift Scene for both “little” and “big” thrift shops is good, but of all the shops I went in, this was hands down the best. So good in fact, that I consider it the most amazing thrift store I have ever been in. And I have been in a lot.
Now, before I reveal all the thrift store glory, let me clarify that the stock and the thrift finds are not what make this the best. What makes it the best are the incredible displays and the ambiance, the culture, the feels that this store offers which are unlike any other.
I wished I would have taken more pictures just so I could look back on them! This is a non-profit “little” thrift store, people! Proceeds support the community! Volunteers keep it going! I was blown away… And of course, I scanned the racks and tried on a few things!
As for the challenge winner for this round, first the runner up just because she’s cute:
And the winner with a foamy warrior weapon:
A couple last notes about Vinny’s. They have colour tag sales for 50% off, they have a cafe next door (!!!) and, best of all…
I will visit Vinny’s every time I go to Austin and I recommend you do too! And if you live in Austin and can go any time, lucky you!!
