I love a good thrift store find! Nothing is better than scoring a good deal, except maybe when that good deal also helps local animals in need!

Their Evansville location is near the Schnucks on First Avenue, it's a 4800 square foot thrift store that features all seasons of clothes, shoes, purses, jewelry, and more.   They also offer a place for local rescues to host adoption events too, so many times you'll find rescue animals at the store. They are also a 501c3 non-profit.
