Like most good thrift stores, Brown Elephant is hit or miss. Sometimes you can find great books and T-shirts as well as super cheap CDs and vinyl, other times nothing appeals and you just wander around the big warehouse.
It is well organized and most of the home goods are reasonably priced but the furniture is a little expensive, considering it’s used and all. However, all the Brown Elephant proceeds go to benefit the Howard Brown Health Center, a great LGBT charity; so, if you’re waffling on spending a couple extra bucks, go for it and know that your money is going to help someone who needs it. That warm glow you feel? That’s the Brown Elephant.
