Thrifty  Threads- 607 S. Coast Hwy 101-Encinitas, CA 92024- (760)753-0028

The place is quirky and cool– it was busy with customers and people were buying things which says a lot about a thrift store.

Thrifty Threads is tucked away in a small strip of shops along Highway 101 in Encinitas.  When I walked in I was greeted by Susan  and Wilma– who were happily chatting with customers while hanging clothes and helping people check out.  The store is definitely small. It’s one of those places where you have to dig around to find stuff but may find the diamond in the rough. I found a cute  handbag that would be perfect to use as a weekend tote.  It was black suede with silver buckles and a sturdy handle– priced at $15. I’m just sorry I didn’t take a photo!  This place also seemed to have a decent selection of men’s items- in particular Hawaiian shirts, surf type gear and all kinds of hats.

Wilma and Susan told me they are going green and have made the decision not to give out shopping bags.  They also don’t give out business cards– when I asked for one they “made” it out of a purple sticky note.  When I asked about a website I was directed to Yelp.  Overall-  it was a fun stop.
