By  |  0 Comments

New York City is home to an incredible amount of thrift stores ranging from cute small vintage shops to huge warehouses full of antiques.

The great thing about thrift stores is that you can find something very valuable for insanely cheap.

According to a 2014 Huffington Post reportIf you haven’t experienced this, it is a thrill. Whether it’s designer clothing or some prized piece of unknown electronic equipment — at first you can barely hold your excitement.

Here are the 4 best thrift stores in NYC

  1.  City Opera Thrift Shop

At the City Opera Thrift Store not only will you be able to find incredible vintage finds, but you will also support charities by shopping there.

According to their website, City Opera Thrift Shop is one of the city’s only charity shops supporting the arts. From corporate designer to private donations, they carry a selection of furniture and home goods as well as clothing and accessories for men and women.

In a Yelp review written by Sarah R. in 2016, she says, “I found a gorgeous top here that I will forever treasure. This place is such a gem. I imagine that like any thrift store, I won’t find anything most times I go, but this charming place seems like it will be worth visiting often to find that one amazing piece every once in a long while.”

 

  1. Rue St. Denis

They carry unworn clothing from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s and you will never find anything contemporary.

According to their website, For decades, Jean-Paul has single-handedly stocked an enviable collection of carefully curated wardrobe must-haves from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Co-owner Riccardo is a stylist and specializes in finding the perfect looks and proportions for each individual that enters the magic boutique. The owner’s savvy eye for impeccable vintage threads extends to the film industry where they’ve provided wardrobe staples for shows including Saturday Night Live, The Americans, Gotham, The Deuce and The Get Down.

  1. Housing Works

For apartment accessories that you will never find at Home Goods or Pier 1, Housing Works is your number one bet. In addition, all sale proceeds go to helping homeless communities and New Yorkers living with AIDS/HIV.

According to their website, their mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain our efforts.

  1. RePOP

No matter your budget RePOP needs to be the next place you shop for new furniture. Their items range from very expensive collector pieces that will definitely make a statement, to very affordable (IKEA type) furniture.

According to their website, RePop is a vintage furniture and oddity show space that combines the overcrowded charm of an old-fashioned Parisian boutique with the promising clutter of a midwestern junk shop.

In a Yelp review by Carla D. in 2017, she says, “This place is Amazing!! The furniture is incredible, Russell the owner is so welcoming and sweet, and the prices are really good for the quality. Great place to go for vintage and mid-century pieces. So nice to support a local business.”

 

 

I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
