Thrifty Thursday Review: Thrift Shop of Boston

Thrifty Thursday Review: The Thrift Shop of Boston

I'm a frequent shopper of the Thrift Shop of Boston and figured it was about time I share it with you. Located in the middle of Roslindale Village, the Thrift Shop of Boston is run by the Home for Little Wanderers, a charity organization that provides help and care for at-risk kids.

Pros: It's a small space but they really get a lot in there without it being crowded. Great for vintage items. We've found great cameras for our collection, some dating back to 1918. We were also able to find salt and pepper shakers from the 60's (we'd been looking for the past year!), dressers, records, and household items.

Cons: Not a good place to go if you're looking for more modern decor. Somehow the store hasn't left the 70's, which is great if you're a retro lover like me but not so good when you want something a little more trendy.

Perhaps the best part of the Thrift Shop is that 100% of the money goes straight to the Home for Little Wanderers organization. How can you say no to that!
