Designer finds at thrift store prices

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The ladies from the thrift store shopping blog Too Cheap Blondes took us on a shopping trip.

"Pippa and I come here once or twice a month," said half of the professional thrifting duo Jen Meneely.

Meneely and Pippa Williams blog from various Houston-area thrift stores and post their best finds to their blog.

We went with them to Family Thrift Outlet on a Thursday where everything in the store is just $2. Everyday after, the prices drop a quarter.

"You almost always find something, there is always a good deal," Williams said.

Valentino, Brooks Brothers, and Lilly Pulitzer were just some of the brands we found.
