A Review of New 2 You Store (Now CLOSED)

This store is now CLOSED. A new bargain store opened in May at the corner of Academy and Maizeland and I stopped in the other day to check them out.  Here’s what I thought: New 2 You is not necessarily a thrift store in the traditional sense – many of their goods are actually new.  […]

A Review of the New Arc Thrift Store on North Academy

Last Saturday, my baby and I I had a few hours to ourselves so I decided to check out the new Arc Thrift Store on North Academy. It’s in the old Ultimate Electronics building, next to Family Christian and just north of the Woodmen/Academy intersection on the east side. This is by far the nicest, […]

My Bargain Mart Score: Whole-Wheat Pastry Flour, Ghirardelli Chocolate, And More

This past weekend I had approximately six minutes on the way to another appointment to stop by Bargain Mart on South Academy.  After four of those minutes were spent driving up and down Academy trying to find it (tip: turn east on Hancock, the address is 3075 South Academy Boulevard but you’ll need to access it […]

Review: Dollar World (Fillmore St)

Give a mom an afternoon all to herself (plus baby) and what does she do? Why, she goes price shopping at Sam’s and Costco and does thrift store reviews, of course! A few weeks ago I stopped into Dollar World on Fillmore, after hearing from a few readers that that had some great stuff, different […]

Thrift Store Review: Colorado Springs Salvation Army

Time for another Colorado Springs thrift store review… After being in Old Colorado City at Bargain Mart, Recess, This N That, and Goodwill, for the next two weeks we’ll be on the northeast side of town for the Salvation Army Family Store and the Powers Goodwill Store (review coming next week!). The Salvation Army Family […]

Thrift Store Review: Old Colorado City Goodwill

After (finally) visiting Bargain Mart for the first time, I headed to the Goodwill in Old Colorado City before stopping at Recess Consignment and This N That Thrift Store. I should tell you that I am kind of prejudiced towards Goodwill – I think that they have the overall best thrift store shopping experience in […]

Thrift Store Review: This N’ That Store

After I visited Bargain Mart scratch and dent grocery store, I headed east on Colorado Avenue towards Goodwill (review coming next week!) and Recess Consignment.  I saw a small sign that said “thrift store open today” a few doors down from Recess, so I stopped in, hoping this little bungalow would be the thrift store […]

Review: Recess Consignment

Recess Consigment opened in June 2009, and it’s been on my list to visit ever since I heard about it over a year ago!  I finally made it a few weeks ago, and here’s what I thought. Recess Consignment “specializes in finding ‘previously loved’ children’s clothing that is in excellent condition”, and “funky, up to […]

Store Review: Bargain Mart Scratch-And-Dent Store

Update: this store is closing as of September 26th, 2011.  You can visit Bargain Mart’s other location at 3075 South Academy in Colorado Springs. A recent morning out with my two-month-old found me forgetting half the things I needed to run the errands I intended to do, and I ended up at four thrift/consignment stores […]

Store Review: Rainbo Bakery Outlet

I finally did it – I made it to all three bread outlets in Colorado Springs! A couple of weeks ago I visited the Rainbo Bakery Outlet on Chelton for the first time.  The Rainbo store carries brands in the Sara Lee brand family, which includes Sara Lee, Iron Kids, Rainbo, Sunbeam, among others.  Here’s […]

Store Review: Orowheat Bakery Outlet (Now Bimbo Bakery Outlet)

Note: This is now the “Bimbo Bakery Outlet”, featuring the Orowheat and Thomas brands as it has in the past, but also Sara Lee now. Finally, after hearing about the great deals at the Orowheat Bakery Outlet from quite a few readers, I made it in to see what it’s all about! The Orowheat Bakery […]

Store review: Wonder Hostess bread Bakery Outlet

There’s a (relatively) new bakery outlet in town: the Wonder Bread outlet on Galley Rd, between Powers and Murray.  I’m having a hard time pulling up an address that I’m confident is the correct one, but I do know that it was on Galley between Powers and Murry on the north side of the road […]
