  1. Love your blog! New to Houston and trying to find place to thrift/garage sale/etc…where are your favorite places?

    1. Houston is really big. We live on the North side of town. I use to find local garage sales. I thrift, flea market and resale in Porter/New Caney, Cleveland, Coldspring, and Huntsville. If you are interested in those cities I will be happy to share. I will put a list on my Facebook page. Thank you for reading my blog. I enjoy writing it.
