The Day Of My Visit

A gray spring Thursday is a perfect time for bargain hunting, so I headed to Hadassah.  The store was clean and well-lit, making a cheerful comparison to the rainy weather.

The large jewelry cases were packed with most prices ranging from $1 -$5, which is low for the area. I found among the costume jewelry a 14k gold necklace, priced at $5, as was a turquoise ring. Bring a jeweler’s loupe and enjoy!

The men’s clothes section was fairly large with an especially nice variety of shirts.  Men’s suits were hung by size which is always a plus.

It’s hard to find a thrift store that has a good choice of shoes and in such great condition.  I didn’t see one pair out of shape, or that looked as if they’d swaddled the feet of a marathon runner.  There was a beautiful pair of contemporary Stuart Weitzman’s for $15.  If only my feet were bigger!

All housewares were clean, but nothing jumped out as rare or unusual.  There were, however, some good bargains.

The Henrietta Room

The Henrietta Room is a room unto itself, and Hadassah’s showcase for women’s designer clothes.  There was a surprisingly large collection of better brands in good shape on wall racks, and I lost track of time while checking them out.  Hadassah staff definitely know the difference between Mossimo and Missoni, and prices were very reasonable.

Some out of season clothes and accessories were still available up to 80% off.  It’s always good to note where to get clothes for traveling to different climates any time of the year.

There were a decent amount of kids’ clothes, but toys were meager.  Don’t bring the under 7 crowd and expect them to entertain themselves.

At $1 for hardcovers and $.50 for softcovers, books were a bargain. Outdated weight loss titles and ‘how to bathe your cockatoo’ books were missing, which was a relief.

There wasn’t a lot of furniture, but what they did have was in good shape.  There were a few nice pieces as well as first apartment fill-ins, all priced appropriately.

Appliances were clean and in good working order, but the section was small.

Two fun butler statues and a Milly the Maid statue were priced at $150.  They both had mild wear but were priced well below the average online price of $200.

My only complaint was the dim lighting in the two dressing rooms.  It didn’t make me look thinner, so what was the point?

Recommendation

The Hadassah thrift store is a well-kept shop worth checking out if you’re in the neighborhood or doing a resale tour.  Men’s clothes, jewelry, shoes, and the Henrietta Room are highlights.
