I was watching one of those shows last night. Haha! Hubby and I have been talking about it for a while. I think we're going to try to do it.

Where do you live? There are only a few here run by non-profit. The rest are by your average joe.

Storage auctions are a fantastic source for inventory.

Michigan and those kind of stores are run by the salvation army or red cross. they take donations abd those are tax deductible

Also, keep your shop organized and clean. Nothing worse than going into a promising looking thrift shop, only to not want to touch anything because it is all grimey, and not being able to find anything, because it is a mess.
