Can’t find what you want at Clotheshorse? Check out Clothes Circuit, an elegant and very well edited consignment boutique located in the chic Park Cities area. “Gucci to Gap” is the shop’s mantra, and the merchandise reflects just that, with both haute couture clothing and mainstream labels sharing space on the floor. The handbag and shoe collections, both of which are showcased in a spacious room reminiscent of an old-fashioned dressing room, are must-sees.

Salvation Army Family Store

5554 Harry Hines Boulevard
Dallas, TX 75235
(214) 630-5611
www.dallas.satruck.org

There are Salvation Army thrift stores, and then there’s the giant Dallas store near the sprawling UT Southwestern campus. Bargain hunters of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds love this large facility for its vast selection of furniture, clothing, accessories, toys, children’s clothing, household goods, electronics, books and music. The parking lot is small, which can make Wednesdays’ Customer Appreciation Day (1/2-off all clothing) a little busier than usual, but it’s worth the trip, especially if you’re in the area.

Open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
