Thrift Haul Score of the Week: Steve Madden Riding Boots

Friday, October 10, 2014

I scored these Steve Madden Riding Boots for $1.75 this past summer while thrifting at Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock. Although I could not wear them immediately, they were worth the wait because boot season is right around the corner.

Park Ave Outlet Woodstock, at 9740 Main St, Woodstock, GA is one of my favorite thrift stores. It is about a 35 minute drive from my home, so I do not visit very often. But when I do I always manage to get some great items. The outlet store uses a one price strategy. 

Every Friday, they stock the store with inventory that is cycled out from their regular location and everything is priced at $2. It is the best day to thrift because you will get first dibs on the newest inventory. Then from Friday through Thursday, the price drops 25 cents and the pricing schedule is as follows:

  • Friday $2
  • Saturday $1.75
  • Sunday $1.50
  • Monday $1.25
  • Tuesday $1.00
  • Wednesday 50 cents
  • Thursday 25 cents
On Thursday, they close at 1pm and spend the rest of the day re-stocking merchandise. My favorite days to shop is Saturday and Sunday. It is less crowded and you still have access to the best selection. I would never recommend going on Wednesday or Thursday, unless you have a specific reason and need to get items at that price. If you do go, brace yourself for crowds and limited inventory too.

What is your thrift haul score of the week?
