Baras Non-Profit Thrift Shop

I stopped at this place on the way home from work one night this week.  The parking lot was an obstacle course of randomly parked cars, odd characters meandering about and construction equipment.  At the entrance to the store there was a hodge podge of ancient furniture that has clearly seen better days.  In addition, there was a rusty bike,  some kind of old lawn mower and a grill.  Once I punched my way thru the plastic (yes, heavy plastic) door– the store itself was even more bizarre and crazy.  This place has a little bit of everything– golf clubs, old vintage board games, crafts supplies, dishes & glassware.  They did have quite a good collection of paperback books. And most surprising– they had several wedding dresses in like-new condition.

Bottom line this is the kind of place to maybe find something surprising and wonderful hidden among the junk.
