I popped in there last Sunday, tempted by the sheer size of the store, and I was not disappointed. While I may not have purchased anything this particular run, what I did find was selection and great presentation.
First of all, picture aisles you could actually move down while someone passed you with a cart. This is unheard of in the world of thrift stores in my area. I've grown accustomed to being run over by enthused shoppers overcome by the tunnel vision which can accompany serious thrifting.
The clothes, too, seemed to be in great condition, and the shoes were seriously tempting-- lots of newer styles still appropriate for today.
The furniture section was serious-- it's own room and filled with options. There are shelves of housewares, books at the back, and more collectible stuff and jewelry in cases up front.
All in all, a really bright clean store. So I will definitely be hitting this again on my Route 30 travels.
Their hours are Monday through Saturday 9am to 7:30pm and Sunday 11am to 5:30pm.
Their address is 100 Lowry Avenue, Hempfield Township, PA 15644 and their phone is 724-374-5011. You can check out their web site at www.thethriftking.com
NOW for one other order of business today...
Here's your chance to help out a fellow Thrift Shop Romantic reader...
Does anyone here know a reliable person or business who paints furniture using an industrial spray painter in the general Pittsburgh area you'd be willing to recommend? Someone has a dining set that needs a smoothly painted facelift, and I didn't have any recommendations for her myself.
You can either leave a comment here, or email me directly at thriftshopromantic[at]mac.com
Thanks in advance! And Thrift Happy!
