Thrifting in the footsteps of Elvis
If you are ever in Memphis and looking for a thrifting adventure, you must take a ride down Winchester Road. Winchester, convienently located near the Memphis airport, is one of those lowbrow destinations best known for Strip Clubs and Pay day loans.It does also have quite a few thrift stores and is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.If you leave the airport and head east on Winchester, you will definitely hit Disabled American Vets,Memphis Super Thrift,and Thrift Town. Today's post is about Thrift Town.
Thrift Town is furthest from the Airport, heading towards Collierville. The address is 6646 Winchester Road.Thrift town has specials on tags and a great selection and variety of household goods, such as vintage luggage and dishes. They also have some interesting vintage fabric and old quilt bits.They have a wide variety of vintage and antique books and records. The clothes are very much picked over and not worth the visit as is the linens department so dont bother if that is your thing.A few nice coats but the trashionistas have definitely picked this store over as far as clothing goes.
