Noble has been writing and publishing these guides for years now and this is the latest update. She does her homework, her sources are impeccable, as is her reasoning and ratings.
Consignment, thrift & vintage shop clothing for women, men and children’s clothes, accessories, jewelry, etc. are included, as are shops that specialize in furniture, antiques and home furnishings. It is a pretty extensive list, and although not every thrift shop in both counties is listed, I found several I didn’t know about and several that I did.
For review purposes, I zeroed in on the shops that I was most familiar with in order to see if Noble’s assessments mirrored my own, and for the most part, they did. Lucky for us, she avoids many of the stores that I tend to avoid, the stores that have mostly junk and the stores that I find overpriced, making this book extremely useful.
If you are a bargain shopper and are planning on visiting the Palm Beach or Broward County areas – West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, or anywhere in between, this is the book you will want to take with you. And if you live here, you should probably buy a copy to keep for yourself and loan out to your guests.
Here’s a great idea – buy the ebook version and keep it on your smart phone for instant browsing while you’re out and about!
