***** "I LOVE THIS PLACE !!! #1 PLACE TO SHOP
Right from the moment I walked in !! It's a pleasure to come IN to this well organized, FRIENDLY store! The wonderful ladies actually CARE about what they are doing."
***** "I'm not from around here so I decided to check out the thrift stores in the area and I'm glad I did! This place is so nice! The ladies working here are the sweetest. I found a great top for $12 which seems a lot but if you knew me you'd know I hardly find clothes I actually like. An awesome hat for $4 which made me ecstatic. If you're around definitely check them out. I'm a pretty prolific thrift store shopper, and am familiar with many of the charity shops in Long Beach. This is one of my favorites!"
***** "I love this shop. I know that's a bold statement, but it's the truth. When you first step in you will notice how quiet this place is and also you will see how many cool stuff there is for the right price."
***** "The store has a section of higher priced 'boutique' items that has its walls painted like a French storefront, which adds a very nice touch."
***** “It's well-kept, the volunteers are kind and helpful and the merchandise is useful, unique and oftentimes, very fun.”
***** They also have a nice "boutique" section with very gently used (or sometimes new) items that are fancier brand names, mixed in with some authentically vintage items. It varies a lot, so it's worth it to check in periodically.
***** Really impressed by their holiday selection (bought two boxes of brand new christmas lights for $6) and they're also selling ready-made gift baskets with unique themes-- "for the wine lover," etc... and just lots of glittery christmas goodness :) Everything else is very good quality for a good price !
***** I like this place. It's clean and organized. There are a ton of great looking items there. I found a pair of hot red stilettos in GREAT condition for only $7! And when I said, "GREAT," I meant it looked like it had only been worn once. I also purchased a great (real) leather Banana Republic purse. My best friend bought a couple pairs of shoes, and was lucky to find a pair of black Nine West stilettos for only $7 (in great condition)!! Anyway, another thing that made our shopping fun was the fact that the staffs are volunteers and most, if not all, proceeds go to charity. I'm certainly going to return to this place.
***** “A great thrift shop in the middle of retro row on 4th in long beach.”
***** "And of course, the best part is, the volunteers that work there are very friendly and you're supporting a good cause."
