I’ve been a long time lover of thrift and consignment stores, all are great in their own way. Some are more expensive than others, some focus on mostly clothing or mostly home decor, some screen the items before they are put on the floor for sale and some don’t, some are local businesses and some work with nonprofits. But the one that stands out for all the right reasons is the Edmonton Emergency Relief Services, Peacock Boutique Thrift Shop!
They sell clothing, furniture, home items and electronics which are all checked thoroughly and tested before they are put on sale. They also carry brand new items donated by major stores such as returned and overstocked items. The store is cutely organized and they can even offer delivery for large items! The revenue from the store and other donations are used to support the services that Edmonton Emergency Relief Services offers.
They are located on 104 Street and 103 Avenue right in the heart of downtown and the new arena district. It’s too bad they don’t get enough recognition so let’s change that, the secret is out!
I found so many great items, it was hard picking out what I should get – I wanted it all, but in order to be less glutinous I didn’t choose anything. I am regularly stopping by the boutique so stay tuned for more! However, this is what I purchased on my first visit to the shop, a retro chair that is perfect for the backyard of my modern retro inspired home! This great chair was $20!
Until the next thrift!
