There’s some great thrifting in Langley, BC. I’ve blogged in the past about Penny Pinchers and Second Story Treasures. My last post was about my great find at evil Value Village in Langley. And now, I’ve recently discovered another gem: the Mission Thrift Store.
This is a large, beautifully laid out and artfully decorated shop. They’ve got someone with some true creative muscles (and a Pinterest account, clearly) doing the displays for this shop. Check out some of these details:
The shop has a great selection of clothing, a decent sized book section, and a large furniture section. Things are reasonably priced, volunteers are friendly and helpful.
I picked up two little gems while here.
This Northern Reflections seasonal-themed top was just two bucks. I look for Northern Reflections branded clothes in thrift shops because their older clothing is actually good quality.
I’ve noticed that they’ve gone to inferior fabrics for a lot of their new clothing – especially t-shirts/tops. If I can hold it up to the light and see through it, I’m not interested (I’m just so over that, you know? )
I also found a Trixie Beldon book that I don’t yet own. I used to collect these as a child and have several of them but they’re harder to find than Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys. Trixie ignited a deep desire within me to own a horse; a problem for my parents, given that we lived in an apartment in Vancouver at the time. She also began a passion for mystery novels that has never died. I got this one for $2.
The Mission Thrift Store supports BFM Canada (which I assume stands for Bibles for Missions but none of their materials OR their websites actually spells this out. These people need me.) The mission supports Bible-based literacy programs and supports the persecuted church world-wide. They are active in 40 countries around the world.
This shop is worth your next trip to Langley. Are you aware of other great thrifting in this area? Let me know – I’m always on the hunt for a new thrifting experience!
