them festive for the holiday.
Note to self: sprinkles would have worked better, I do not "drizzle" well.
Now for Amy (who will have 3 daughters in B'ham for school in the fall) and Cindy( who lives in the area): the thrift store info.
My favorite is America's Thrift store, at 1125 Huffman Rd. It is great for kids clothes and shoes. Amy--if you ever make it, you are only 15-20 min from my house!!-hint.
When we go to Children's or have other downtown business, we try to swing by the Salvation Army store at 76 Green Springs Hwy, just a few minutes from UAB. They do not have a ton of kids clothes, but I do always find something. It is great for adult clothes; when Kristen went to Bob Jones University, we got almost her whole wardrobe there.
Those are my main two, but I do like to check out the Lovelady Center in the old Circuit City bldg across from the old Eastwood mall (sorry I do not know the rd name).
When I go to Am's Thrift Store in Huffman, I often go on down to another one in Center Point, it's on the right. but I do not know the name--sorry. And then continue on down the Pkwy all the way to Pinson, and hit Mission Possible at 4496 Center Point Pkwy.
Last but not least, is the Salvation Army store in Hoover, down 145 from the Galleria. We used to hit it occasionally after physical therapy for Waid, but we dropped out of PT for the summer.
There are plenty more out there, I used to love the Alabaster one, years ago when we lived out that way. If you have a favorite, let me know!
