Discovery Shop: A unique resale experience in Point Loma

Need something flashy and swanky for the holidays? This place is awesome for just that! There’s plenty of sparkly jackets and spiffy dresses.

I had a great time this weekend at Point Loma’s American Cancer Society Resale Shop. Located at 3609-C Midway Drive, this shop is easy to find with plenty of parking.

Definitely– lots of sparkle here! Most important this shop is clean and neat and extremely well merchandised.  Clothes were pressed (not all wrinkled!) and the racks were colorized too.  For someone like me that is a good thing since I’m really trying to break out of my “uniform” of wearing black all the time.

I found some shoes for work and a fantastic selection of jackets.  Pictured below is an awesome fur jacket I found. It was in great condition. Prices here were reasonable and the clearance racks had a sizeable selection of items priced at $2– you read that right– 2 Bucks!!

Upcoming Events:

Friday & Saturday December 13 and December 14: Semi-Annual Sale 50% off Storewide Savings

Sunday December 15: Prepare for the new year or finish your holiday shopping. A variety of unused merchandise with original tags will be featured (I got a sneak peek– it’s all good stuff!!)

Girls From The Park Resale Shop

Need a little sunshine in your life? Maybe some retail therapy on a rough Monday afternoon? I found myself in the Point Loma area and in serious need of some retail therapy recently– on a Monday afternoon! Girls from the Park is a contemporary fashion resale boutique now located in Point Loma, California. They offer a great selection of gently used clothing, shoes and accessories by all of your favorite designers.

  • Girls From The Park Resale Shop
  • 3034 Canon Street
  • Point Loma, CA 92106
  • Phone: (619) 226-0043
  • Web: www.girlsfromthepark.com

A little about the “girls”– sounds like the shop name is a spin on the real life of the owners who grew up in the El Dorado Trailer Park near Lakeside, CA in the 1970’s. Per the store website “you can take the girl out of the park but you can’t take the park out of the girl!” I had to laugh when I read those words in a sea of pink on their website. Let me tell you– this shop was a true treat to visit. I found pretty shoes, handbags and several gorgeous dresses. A true shopping pleasure all at great prices! If you find yourself in need of some retail therapy in Point Loma– check out the Girls From The Park!! Bravo!

Alice Alfreda – A Resale Boutique

Oh wow… I found a really cute shop earlier this week in Point Loma. I was “wandering around” aimlessly in the neighborhood when I came across Alice Alfreda— I literally ran into it while driving. (No, I didn’t actually hit the building itself but I did hit the curb- another story, another time…)

  • Alice Alfreda – a resale boutique
  • 1255-102 Rosecrans Street
  • San Diego, CA 92106
  • Phone: (619) 549-8676

As you all know, I love finding resale shops and am always on the look-out for bargains. Alice Alfreda offers a carefully edited collection of gently used and new upscale clothing, shoes and accessories. I spotted a fantastic black Kate Spade bag hanging on the wall for a mere $45– and the bag was in perfect condition! The stuff here is great! It is a smaller shop which is fine as far as I’m concerned– easier to shop. I love handbags and shoes and the selection for both was excellent. Even with a small space everything was well-organized, neat and clean. I didn’t feel like I had to “dig” to find things. Better yet– the girl minding the shop for the owner was friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back again!
