When Robin and I opened our doors on April 3rd, 2012, we had three goals in mind:  

  1. Provide a wide selection of decorative and unique items for our customers. 
  2. Provide the most affordable, thrift store prices in the community.  
  3. Have a large, clean store that was laid out properly, where customers could see and easily find everything, (the wide aisles makes the store wheel chair friendly).  

Our store is built on the traditional thrift store business model, including WiFi Internet access, high-definition TV viewing, and easy-listening music. We consider our store a new kind of thrift store.

December 19, 2013: It' s always a treat for me when a customer comes into the store and finds exactly what they're looking for.

It's particularly good when a customer finds something that reminds them of a loved one or a good experience when they were younger or a child.

This Christmas holiday is special because my two daughters and son will be home for the holidays.

I'm proud of my children, my son Tom is a Junior at UNC School of the Arts, in Winston-Salem, and Zoe is a Sophomore at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, and Samantha graduated last year from Coppin State University in Baltimore.

We will all spend a few days in beautiful, sunny and warm Florida.

Is It Okay To Buy A Christmas Gift From A Thrift Store?

November 16, 2013
My guess is that some people would say, "Ewwww, no way!". However, there is a growing segment of the population that would say, "Heck yeah.", and they would say that for all the right reasons.

One of those reason being the option to give someone that you love, a gift that is unique, affordable and has been gently loved and appreciated by another special person.

As an example, you can't walk into Target or Walmart and buy an original copy of The National Geographic Magazine that was printed in April, 1919.

That would be an amazing gift to give someone (a 94 year old publication), and that gift cost you under $20.00.

The issue is in the store today.

What Things Cost In 1919?:

The average house cost $7,385
Equivalent today: $93,402

The average car cost $525
Equivalent today: $6,640

The average wage was $920
Equivalent today: $11,636

Dial telephones are introduced by the American Telephone and Telegraph Company and the popup toaster was invented.

Each week until Christmas Eve, we at Port City Thrift will show you a unique gift or two that you can't buy at the big box stores but will be for sale at Port City Thrift.

However, lets not rush past Thanksgiving to get to the Christmas Holiday Season. Robin and I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
