Thrift Finds: San Francisco

Finally, I remembered to photograph a couple of my San Francisco thrift finds. It's about time, right? And I thought I might as well interject a little bit of a review of the thrifts we visited there as well. (Clicking on the thrift shop names will lead to reviews and addresses, if you're interested!) Okay, here we go:

Kitty Purse, Thrift Town ($2.75)

I was most pleased with Thrift Town out of the SF thrifts. I got this little kitty purse and the vintage Hawaiian purse that was in one of my vacation outfit posts. For less than three bucks each, I thought they were reasonably priced. The store was two stories and had a lot of items, but the two bags were all that I found.

The very best prices that I encountered out of the San Francisco thrifts were definitely at Community Thrift. The hubby found a veritable gold mine of men's vintage shirts for cheap, and I scored two Chinese fans. The more ornate one went to my sis-in-law, but I kept the all-green one:
Chinese Fan, Community Thrift ($0.75)
While Community Thrift seemed to have pretty great prices and some cool things, there just wasn't much that I liked there. The only other thing I thrifted in the city was a San Francisco shirt from the local Goodwill. We didn't find anything at Mission Thrift, which seemed more like a vintage shop than a thrift shop. It was too pricey for my wallet!

Well, I think this post officially ends my vacation-centered ones, although I could certainly go on for weeks talking about all the things we did! I hope you're having a great day off (if you have today off), and thank you again to all of the servicemen and servicewomen for all you've done for our country. 



  1. Hey! I'm new to your blog, but I agree about the SF thrifts. I've been to ones in Reno too, and they are much better!

  2. OMG That kitty purse!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!
