Fall Y'all Introduced!

If fall is your favorite season, then Second Helping’s inaugural Fall Y’all shopping event is the place to be on Saturday, September 21st from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at 3700 Williams Drive. 

Second Helping, a thrift store run by local non-profit The Caring Place, is hosting their first autumn themed shopping event.  This furniture, decor and specialty store will bring out all things fall on September 21st.  Autumn décor, vintage linens & quilts, primitive pieces, fall foliage, seasonal finds and unique gifts will be available for purchase.  Cider, cookies and drawings will be offered through the day to encourage those fall temperatures to drop!

Store Manager, Tracy Tripulas says, “Fall Y’all as a shopping event came about because we know our customers get excited about changing seasons.  Our larger store, The Shops at The Caring Place has huge success with their Sweets, Treats & Trees holiday event in November and we are hoping for the same kind of draw as the event grows.  To see volunteers create magnificent holiday transformations overnight is magical.  Our customers will love seeing Fall Y’all come to life at Second Helping.”

Second Helping is located at 3700 Williams Drive in Georgetown, Texas.  Regular hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Follow The Caring Place on Social Media for merchandise photos and regular sale announcements for this location.  You can find The Caring Place on Facebook @thecaringplace and on Instagram @thecaringplacetx.


Since 1985, The Caring Place has provided for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way.  Through two thrift shops, The Shops at The Caring Place and Second Helping, both in Georgetown, the organization is able to pay all operating expenses to serve a growing community.  All monetary and food donations directly benefit neighbors needing food, utility, rent, transportation or medical assistance.  The Caring Place is a community-based and community-supported organization.  For more information on The Caring Place, visit
