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.
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.
I was most interested in the clothing, ‘natch, and found plenty to try on!
I also nabbed silk Ralph Lauren striped lounge pants for fifty cents on my way out…
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!
Sounds like you all had a lot of fun there, but now I want to hear more about your scrapbooking retreat! What did you wear? What did you do? What did you make? What did you drink??? How is your scrapbook coming along? Inquiring minds want to know…
You inspired me to write a post about the retreat which will be coming sometime soon… hopefully not until I get to my next retreat! lol I’ll dish it all. xoxo
