Nifty + Thrifty


National Thrift Shop Day is August 17th, so get ready for some bargain shopping in Louisiana’s Bayou Country!

Celebrate this day by visiting some of our local thrift shops, which are filled with hidden gems and items ranging from furniture, clothing, jewelry and so much more.

Thrift shops are retail establishments that sell gently used items, generally run by charitable organizations, or sometimes by organizations that may also use some of the items to help others get back on their feet after a disaster or difficult times.

Although the low prices are a bonus, more often the most exciting part of thrifting is finding hidden antique and vintage treasures. With the diversity and culture of our area, our local thrift shops are bound to have items in them that will catch your eye!

To celebrate National Thrift Shop Day, visit one of our local thrift or consignment shops and admire all they have to offer. You might also consider donating items to one of these shops, so one of your items could become someone else’s hidden find!


Listed below are some of our local thrift and consignment shops. Happy bargaining!
