Don't Forget Your Reusable Bags!

We can't wait for you to come shop with us!  But when you come, please remember to bring your reusable shopping bags!  Thread strives to minimize the day-to-day waste of running a business.  Here are just a few reasons we would appreciate your help:


1.  A plastic shopping bag can take anywhere from 15 to 1000 years to decompose
2.  Plastic bags don't biodegrade
3.  The cost to recycle plastic bags so outweighs their value that most recycling facilities will not take them
4.  According to the Wall Street Journal, only 1% of plastic bags are recycled world-wide
5.  The US alone uses approximately 100 billion new plastic bags per year
6.  Think paper bags are better? The US cuts down 14 million trees/year to supply the demand for paper shopping bags

New Store Alert: Thread – Houston


We’ve got the inside scoop on Thread, a stylish kids’ consignment store that just opened today in Houston’s The Heights. Emphasis on stylish–this is not your typical consignment store.
Thread only accepts new and extremely gently used duds from name brands. It’s the perfect solution for dressing your kids in name brand/designer clothes and shoes when they’re growing so quickly! Yes, we’re talking to you, mom-who-bought-her-toddler-j brand-jeggings.
The store is run by two friends and UT Austin alums who share a love of fashion and a dislike of spending small fortunes on their kids’ clothes. They were both retail merchandising majors who have since gained fashion and retail expertise.
816 W. Cottage, 77009, 713.447.2927 (Know before you go: the store is situated in a guesthouse behind a residence)
Thread hours:
Monday         Closed
Tuesday         10-4
Wednesday   10-4
Thursday       10-6
Friday             By appointment only
Saturday        10-4
