The Next-to-New store on Burnet road is a Retro-luxe thrifting secret. It's on Burnet road, which is the greatest place to shop. If it's not on Burnet Rd. friends, you don't need it...After you get done here, you can walk right across the street to Ginny's Little Longhorn and have a Lone Star and a pickled egg. I digress! I'll admit, prices at Next-to-New can be too high. They do have this thing where the prices drops after a certain period of time, so there's really three prices on a tag. Check the date! I've gotten some great deals there. I've also waited for the price to drop and gone back there and the item was gone. Which is frustrating. Which is why it's good that Ginny's Little Longhorn is so close by...At any rate, this is a great place to do your holiday shopping if you like any of the following:
There's a lot of this kind of stuff at Next-to-New--
These Episcopal women have the most amazing barware...champagne anyone?
This is a great place to shop if you need a punch bowl--
Or a soup toureen--
There's usually some interesting mid-century pieces, but they know what they have and price it high, hookers.
This sofa would be right at home in Elvis' Jungle Room. Use your imagination and picture the coffee table with a mannequin underneath--
These lovely cups would be divine to serve mint juleps in at your next Kentucky Derby party!
One more thing. The nice ladies who work here are volunteers. And they're not in a hurry. They have time to chat! Please do not shop here if you are in a hurry! And please, don't get snippy when it takes awhile to wrap up your package due to idle chit chat. If you want speedy, go to the big box!
