Back to School “Selfie” Shopping

There are always some kids who show up the first week of school “dressed to the 9’s”. These kids (and their parents) study the trends and shop the boutiques.

Think Summer – Surfs Up DIY

It’s not every day we can go surfing, but we can dream!

Bucking the National Trend

You may have noticed the trend in recent years… one big box store after the next closing their doors.  Others are shrinking their footprint and coming up with smaller versions of themselves.  This way they can open more store fronts situated closer to each other and appear more community focused. At Impact Thrift Stores, we’re […]

It’s all in the label…
