1. Texas Trash
Clothing Exchange
1710 McCullough, (210) 259-6028, facebook.com/texastrash.clothingexchange

For many of us, thrift stores reflect our childhoods: everything's broken and incomplete. To find anything good requires the dexterity of a (young) Indiana Jones, who (in this case) can outrun a giant boulder of slightly stained H-E-B polos and Alf dolls as a tribe of Member's Only natives attempt to spear him with broken NERF products. Texas Trash Clothing Exchange saves you from all that ugliness by combining a punk-rock DIY ethos with a commitment to quality inventory. Unpretentiously located by San Antonio College, Texas Trash supplies a comfortable shopping experience you don't always find at the higher-priced boutiques. If only they could have saved us from Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.
