City Thrift - Tupelo's latest & greatest new thrift store
I've written about this shop several times and just cannot get enough of it. City Thrift opened in the Fall of 2007 to much acclaim in the Tupelo area. They have a few smaller stores but nothing like this which is more akin to a Value Village,Red White & Blue or a DAV in larger metropolitan areas. Fortunately, it s not far from the homestead so when we are there, it's time for City Thrift & this last visit was just as great as ever. We only had about 30 minutes, so we breezed in and spotted this rack of leather coats, all going for at least half off. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I was glad we had an SUV to drive away in.
We purchased enough vintage leather to outfit the cast of Saturday Night Fever and the Godfather combined.We also found some good silverplate for Mom (shh dont tell) and an array of vintage books. What is also great about this store is that they take donations. We had a nice load of fabric from my great grandmother's house that you couldnt use in a year of sundays. It was a great respite from family related stress.If you are in the Tupelo area you should not miss out on CITY THRIFT.They have 50cent Sundays too!
