Best Thrift Store

TIE: Goodwill, Top Drawer

Both of these organizations greatly benefit Austin citizens. Goodwill helps give a leg up to those facing employment barriers. Top Drawer funds services for those living with AIDS. Plus, they both have great stuff. Goodwill is best for those of you who like the enormous sifting process, with eight jumbo stores in Austin (not to mention a very spiffy new logo). Top Drawer offers that intimate shopping experience with treasures and regular discounts and sales packed into a cute little location on Burnet Road.

Goodwill, Various Austin locations, 442-8802; Top Drawer, 4902 Burnet Rd., 454-5161
