Blog Action day is tomorrow and the focus is the environment. When I started this blog a few years back it was amazing how many people in the New Orleans and surrounding areas would visit the site to get information about thrift shops, hours and locations.
It is wonderful then today to announce that Mid City now has a fabulous replacement for the old Thrift City. Goodwill has opened in the old Albertsons, which was the old Kmart which was the old whatever and so on and so on. 3400 Tulane Avenue. They had at least 200 people there shopping today.
You can save over 300,000 gallons of water by purchasing one used or recycled textile garment, as opposed to buying a new one. In addition you are providing jobs and training for many folks who need them. Shop at your local thrift store today. You can make the world a much better place!
