First off, The Thrift Store in Plano is having it's 50% off sale. This is the same thrift store from this eBay success story.
The sale runs September 8th - September 13th. And the store is located at 1806 Ave. K. This store typically runs a bit pricey, but the 50% sale is the time to visit!! Be sure to check what color tags are included in the sale, and sign up for their mailing list while you're there. They only mail out twice a year, for the 50% off sale.
They are having the same sale at Plaza Thrift on McDonald in McKinney and Denton Thrift on University in Denton.
