I recently discovered ANOTHER amazing thrift shop in Houston thanks to the suggestion of my BSF friend: The Opportunity Shop at Second Mile.

This is the building to look for! I say that because I went to the wrong place first so do note the address:
1135 Highway 90A W Missouri City, Texas 77489

Second Mile is a non-profit organization that serves to help “Fort Bend County residents in poverty and crisis by providing basic needs and opportunities to take next steps in their lives.” Second Mile instills hope through relationship, and that undercurrent is palpable the moment you pass through the doors! “Our approach is to develop relationships of dignity, honor and respect. Through these relationships, people in need renew hope and develop as leaders.” Y’all. THIS is reason alone to support Second Mile by thrifting at The Opportunity Shop.

I took Mary and Elisa along with me on this little adventure!

After driving around and getting a bit lost, we finally found the shop! Elisa was on her way in before I could nab her for the obligatory selfie!

When you enter the Second Mile Mission Center building, you will pass by a waiting area to get to The Opportunity Shop.

As you walk down the hall, you will see this nice display on the right pointing the way!

You’ll see this sign at the end of the hall and to the left is the thrift shop!

The shop is not huge but it is full of great items with lots of variety in different sizes.

The prices were great as it is but there was also a sale going on!

There is a second room with furniture and household items.

It was nicely staged! I felt like I was in someone’s living room!

The prices on everything were more than reasonable.

I was most interested in the clothing, ‘natch, and found plenty to try on!

I want an orange sleeveless top but this one left nothing to the imagination about my lack of ab work.

This floral top had a vintage vibe and I might have got it had I known about the sale but it didn’t make the cut. #thriftregret

I wanted this dress to work but I looked like a tennis player in it.

Same with the yellow one. Too bad.

I saw this silk dress and envisioned it belted and chic but the arm holes were so very small. Wah.

I thought my green dress dreams were going to come true but this one was too big!

Tiger’s eye bracelet for one dolla. I have no bracelets so this was essential. ;P

Spotted this Astros tee on my way out and nabbed it for $2. When in Houston…

I also nabbed silk Ralph Lauren striped lounge pants for fifty cents on my way out…

The Making of Pinspired March
I wore them inside out to kick off Pinspired March!

And I wore them again after contending with my daughter’s lice AGAIN.

All in all, I spent about $15 which I consider GREAT value for all the fun I had, for all the pieces I bought, and for supporting a worthy cause. You should definitely add The Opportunity Shop at Second Mile to your “MUST THRIFT” list when in Houston!
