Our Lady of the Cape Thrift Shop

This is another place that Andy and I got into the habit of going to after dropping off our trash at the dump (ahem, recycling center). Mainly because the Dunkin Donuts is right next door and we like to get a coffee (for me) and iced tea (for Andy) and then it’s convenient to stop in to the “Old Ladies of the Cape.” (Sorry.)

It’s a pretty average thrift store, I would say, as far as the merchandise goes. They get nice donations but it tends to be a little on the “old lady” side. Lots of dishes and glassware, and they have good sales. The jewelry is very nice for vintage and more recent costume stuff compared to most places around.

Check it out. This seems to be the pattern with me. So far I can’t think of a thrift store on the cape I’ve been to that I would say isn’t worth stopping in once in a while to see what’s there. Our Lady of the Cape is no exception. It’s very conveniently located on 6A, the scenery is beautiful (right by Stony Brook marsh area and the Natural History Museum), and you can stop and get a coffee afterwards. How can you beat it.
