An Awesome Thrift Store, 1st Edition: Waterfront Rescue Mission!

This is a new feature that I'll be doing every once in awhile to show you all where I'm thrifting and to give you a bit of a tour and my experiences there :)

One of the biggest and best thrift stores in Pensacola, Florida, (where I was this past weekend) is the Waterfront Rescue Mission. My Grammy goes there to thrift and to donate, and she led us there on Saturday morning for a little thrifting fun!

It was huge and the most organized thrift store I've ever been to. With the great layout (there are separate areas for clothing, books, sports equipment, electronics and furniture) and even greater prices (vintage reading glasses were $1.99, magazines 50 cents, designer shoes $4.99...) this is like the thrift department store of my dreams!

One of my most favorite parts of Waterfront Rescue Mission was the enormous rack of magazines, all carefully placed by title :) I grabbed a couple recent issues of home decor magazines that I usually can't afford (they're about $10 each new!), and would've grabbed more if I had the room in my carry-on!

My little brother, who never thrifted much in his life, found a Wii control, a season of the show Las Vegas, and an awesome golf club here. This is the kind of thrift store that non-thrifters and thrifters alike will love and enjoy :)

You can visit the Waterfront Rescue Mission site here. There are five locations, all in the Florida panhandle area, with one in Foley, Alabama.

More on my finds there tomorrow!



  1. Very nice thrift store. If I am ever in that area I will look for one to visit!

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words about our Waterfront Rescue Mission Bargain Center in Pensacola, FL. The next time your in the area, check out our other 4 locations in Milton, Crestview, Ft. Walton Beach & Foley. We'd love to get your feedback!


  3. No, thank you :) I honestly can't wait to check out the other locations! I definitely will the next time I'm in the area :)


I love your comments! You all are the best!
