This is a tiny thrift store with a tiny selection. The prices are really cheap for some things and really overpriced for others. They only take cash, which can be inconvenient.

Although the prices can be extremely cheap -- they have a cart full of 10-cent items -- there's not a whole lot to choose from here. They've only got a couple racks of cloths and a couple shelves of trinkets.

It might be worth a stop if you're in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way to shop here.

I visited this shop this past Saturday. There were two older ladies at the counter talking to one customer. They neither greeted nor acknowledged me and my friend as do the folks in all other thrift shops I've visited in Orlando. In fact they were frowning and avoiding eye contact with us, which I thought was odd.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt telling myself they were just busy with the person at the counter. I wandered around a little then returned to the counter and waited patiently to be acknowledged. Neither acknowledged me, instead they pretended to be busy and would not look at me. I stood there waiting to see how long they would keep this up. The only other customer was gone.

When I finally spoke to one woman, I was told in an impatient and rude manner (not asked) to wait. She said she was busy. I looked at the other who just turned her back to me. When I continued to stand there for several more minutes they finally did look at me. I asked one question about the furniture store I'd seen on TV. The answer:
1) they did not have the address for the auxiliary store that had the furniture.

I continued to look around for a vase. I found two matching vases.

A third, more pleasant lady at the back of the store told me "everything" in the shop was "half off that day".

When I came to the counter with the vases, $1.00 each, I was told they would not extend the half off sale to two items I purchased because they were only a dollar each.

These two women clearly did not want me or us in the store. They were blatantly rude and made it painfully obvious I was not welcome in the store.

If this is the way they are with people who look like my friend or myself I understand why the stores are going under and this one was as empty as it was.

There is nothing different or special about what they carry. In fact they had very little and I've seen better quality merchandise at the other Thrift shops in town. Don't waste your time shopping there. They don't have much and are quite rude and unfriendly.

By the way, my friend is in his 40's and always smiles. I am in my 60''s and average looking. I don't get it - was it our clothes? The fact that we were shopping together? What could it possibly have been.

If this is an exclusive Thrift Club they should note that on the door.

Looking for a bargain? Clothing, bric a brac, jewelry, books, appliance. All previously used - some more than others but worth looking through.

Hit or miss but worth a try. Conveniently located in the Publix Shopping Center on Aloma Avenue in Winter Park.
