Thrift Store Review – Assistance League Thrift House

I’ve been trying to make it into this thrift store for about 2 years! Whenever I’m in this area of town they always seem to be closed.

Assistance League Thrift House

4901 Burnet Road, Austin, Texas 78756

Hours: Weds thu Saturday – 10am to 4:30pm

The Good:

This is a local charity which is all run by volunteers so 100% of your purchase or donation goes to charity. This is one of the more neatly organized thrift shops I’ve been into. The workers are a lovely group of nice old ladies. Great location! Across the street from a fab little diner called The Omelettry and a vintage store called Top Drawer. Down the street from Savers Thrift.

The Bad:

Limited Hours!! If you work during the day it means it is hard to get there before it closes. Not a lot of cute vintage finds on this trip but I’ll keep trying. Prices were a bit high for what seemed to be mostly stuff from the 1990s. Dresses ranged from $10 up to $60. Some framed photos were $30. Smallish shop which was surprisingly crowded for a Friday at 3pm.
