Archive for the ‘thrift’ tag
I was unable to find this little thrift store (a few spaces to the left of the package store) listed in any of my at-home phonebooks, but I'm guessing it closed 2009-ish.
This thrift shop was at the corner of Beltline and Edison Street just down form the former Kim's Beauty & Variety.
I'm not sure exactly when it closed, but long enough ago that the building is now up for sale.
Tomlinson's was the follow-on operation to San Jose Restaurante Mexicano. I'm not sure when it closed, but I did the San Jose post in January of 2010, and I can't find Tomlinson's in either the 2011 or 2012 phonebooks, so I'm guessing 2011 by default. I know I've been down US-1 a few times in the past year, but I can't actually ever recall noticing it before. The red sales-ticket shaped sign is quite nice.
Commenter Sidney reported this closing just recently, but it appears to me that it may have happened last year. At least, this little thrift store on the east side of Cedar Terrace is listed in the February 2011 phonebook but not in this year's (February 2012). I think the little window bunny is the sadest thing..
In the same wing of the plaza (though not really in front of the thrift store) is one of those generic soda machines that you very rarely see anymore. It looks as though it may have been doing duty there for the last 40 years.

This Charity thrift store was in the same building as The Southern Skillet just one space to the right (north). I know very little about this place other than that it was listed in the February 2011 phonebook, but not the February 2012, so I'm assuming it closed last year.
UPDATE 4 June 2012: Updated closing date from "2011" to "August 2011" based on commenter Andrew's research.
