Thursday Morning Thrifting: Clausen House Annex & Thrift Store

{photo source: oaktown art}
Happy Thursday, happy thrifters! I've returned with another edition of Thursday Morning Thrifting. Today, I'm reviewing the Clausen House Annex & Thrift Store in Oakland, CA.

This is a really cute neighborhood thrift store & antique shop located in the Temescal District of North Oakland. The stores are stocked & the employees are super sweet. {They were pretty tickled by my little pooch, Gidget; i.e. they are dog-freindly.}

The Clausen House Annex holds all the antique (& vintage) furniture and finds that are donated to the non-profit. Prices are relative to what you would find in any antique or vintage store; in other words, pricey. The selection was actually really cool, though. If you like 50s & 60s mod, you will love this side of the shop.

The thrift shop holds all the other stuff. You can pick up a teacup for $3 or a cookbook for $2. I snatched up a Cranium game for $1.50, BRAND-NEW! They also have 50% off tag sales on their clothing.

All in all, the stores are nice to visit if you have the time to peruse. The only downside is parking (street parking only). Plus side, Tara's Organic Ice Cream is right across the street! (Their Lemon Verbena Ice Cream is delight on a waffle cone.) Ice cream & thrifting, what more can a girl ask for??
