The Dragon has lost its Happy!\r
Shopped here regularly for more years then I care to remember- always hit or miss yet sadly the hits are all but forgotten as I fear the Dragon has become nothing more than a sponsored trash bin. Anything

I'm a dedicated thriftstore shopper and have been for the last 30 years. About 3 years ago, I was directed to the Happy Dragon by an antiques dealer in Los Gatos who suggested that I might find what I was looking for at HD if it was not in

I stopped by this store for the very first time last week and little did I know what I had been missing all these years! The clothes are very nice and I bought some lovely career blouses by Jones of New York etc for $2-$3 each! I think I'm still in shock and glowing from my purchases. I also found some amazing handmade greeting cards that were originally priced at $5 ea retail value and I bought about 10 of those for only 50 cents each. I will definitely be going back there.

Happy Dragon is a hidden little gem. It's always got beautiful women's clothing and great children's books. A great place to find maternity and nursing wear, Hallowe'en costumes and greeting cards. Their men's clothing is less stellar but still well worth looking.

Prices can't be beat, and all profits go to the Eastfield Ming Quong Children's and Family Services, a very worthy cause. Typical prices are $1.50 for a knit blouse, $2.50 for a silk career blouse; $3 for a nice dress, $4 for a pair of blue jeans and $5 for a two-piece business suit. Children's books run from a dime to a dollar, rarely more. Nice board books, lift-the-flap books and hardback classic story books are to be found among the selection.

I've been shopping at Happy Dragon for years, and am never disappointed. It helps to know a couple of things before you go:
(1) bring cash, because that's the only form of payment they accept. $20 can buy you a whole new wardrobe.
(2) Google for parking in downtown Los Gatos because Happy Dragon is right on Main Street, and they have no parking of their own. Same is true for most shops in downtown Los Gatos. So go armed with parking maps.
(3) you'll have to pop in on your lunch hour or day off. Happy Dragon keeps old-fashioned banker's hours, 10am-4pm M-F No weekend or evening hours. Perhaps because they're staffed entirely by volunteers.
(4) Fridays tend to be busiest days because they hold half-off sales and other specials on Fridays. So visit M-Th to avoid any crowds or waiting, or go on Friday early to snag the best deals.

Go in the know and you'll be glad you did. Even when I go just to drop off a donation and have only a couple of dollars in cash, I always leave with some wonderful find.

This thrift store's profits go to disabled children's programs, so all the more reason to spend. I've gotten some beautiful clothes, houseware and children's clothes.

Cons: Parking - watch out not to get parking tickets

It is difficult to find a parking space near this thrift store and it tends to have lots of junky items to look through before you can find the gem. I usually check this thrift store as a very last result. Prices are not that hot either. Once in a while there is something good.
