Some people exude a joy for living! Suzanne is one of our long time readers and when she told us that she was celebrating 1 year cancer free at MD Anderson in Houston and asked to shop with us we could not resist!
We started out at Family Thrift OUTLET Store (Hillcroft) seriously you can not thrift store shop in Houston and miss these gems. (here is our list of our favorite thrift stores)
Next we headed to Goodwill (Riveroaks) another one of our favorite Houston thrift store locations!
“I shop on shopgoodwill.com alot and one day while on fb, your link/profile page came up and I immediately was curious (such a cute, unique name: too cheap blondes) so I clicked on your page and fell in love with yall and what yall do. I was thrilled, even more so to be led to your blog, where I was educated on tips, locations, and benefits to shopping thrift stores and goodwill. I have been following you for quite awhile and love to check out your post and videos. When I realized that I had to travel to Houston to visit MD Andersons, for my first follow-up visit, my desire was to hopefully visit one of your favorite stores. I would have never imagined being blessed to actually meet yall, but w as blessed even beyond my desire or imagination when you volunteered to pick me up and take me shopping with you. I was estatic and I will never forget your kindness and hospitality in making a dream come true. I know some people may think that it’s a silly dream, but not to me, because, for some reason, I’m passionate about treasure hunting in thrift stores. Boy, was I ever so pleased with the 2 stores that you carried me to. I’m actually still blown away with the concept of the Family Thrift outlets. I just wish Mississippi had these stores to bless all the folks here that have need of goods but are on very limited income. Thanks for giving me tips as we shopped and making me feel special. I am humbled by your generosity. I also love that you stress to “pass it on” by donating items that I no longer use or need. I would feel like I was in a dream if I could ever do what yall do, and I am so thankful for the opportunity that you two lovely, giving, classy ladies blessed with. Please keep up the good work and just know that yall are making a difference in people’s lives by educating the public on the benefits of shopping goodwill and thrift stores. Gosh, I had a blast and yall made my medical trip all worth it. I just love yall and look forward to every fb post, video and blog post. Too Cheap Blondes Are My New Favorite “go-to” site. Again, I’m humbled and so happy that your precious daughters enjoyed our time together….to God be ALL the glory. HE is good, Faithful and loving. Suzanne”
