Have I ever told you how much I love thrifting? I really do! I grew up shopping thrift stores. My mom even worked at one. She used to bring home the greatest stuff. I guess you can say it’s in my blood. It’s just unfortunate that most stores make finding plus sizes really hard. I had almost given up hope, until I visited Savers Thrift Store in Austin, Texas!
As part of the Texas Style Council Conference, we were taken on a shopping tour. Everyone was talking about Savers and how much they loved it. I had no idea what it was—never heard of it. After shopping in this thrift store chain for only an hour, now I know why they couldn’t stop raving about it. I found some great things and they separate everything by sizes…including XXL and up!
Then I got an email a few weeks ago offering me a chance to shop at their newest location here in the Los Angeles area. With a Savers gift certificate in hand, I made my way into their newest location in Lomita, California. Only one of five locations in Southern California, this store is huge. I found a few pieces and some awesome silk scarves. Yes, I bought that Eileen Fisher kimono top I found below. I can’t wait to get my stuff dry cleaned. I even found the hubby something. I can’t wait to head back in a few weeks to see what else makes it on their racks.
Are you a Savers Thrift Store shopper? Where do you do your shopping?
