Address: 118 West 17th Street

Founded in 1997 to raise funds for "individuals and families affected by substance abuse, HIV, AIDS and Mental Illness," Angel Street has benefited, as has Housing Works, from the generosity and taste of the downtown community, and particularly the gay community. Top fashion designers, like Tocca and Marc Jacobs, regularly bequeath unsold sample sale items to the store. The most impressive donation, however, came several years ago when the Four Seasons Hotel donated two entire floors of furniture to the shop.

How could you pass that up I know it must be a valid reason like it was a million sizes too big or that you are a man

ebay thrift...
I have been watching these heartbreaking boots for about a week on ebay. I so want them. And what a bargain. But they are too big. TWO sizes too big. I hope someone with the right size feet snaps them up. I even went and measure my longest shoe just to see if i could create a mitigation in lieu!

Gawd, I am off to bed to mope...I might have to take my silver M.J slingbacks to bed to cuddle.

My first time at a Thrift Store, I found a Louis Vuitton womens suit for $10! My girlfriend found a Christian Dior jacket. Kind of looks like the Michelle Mason one that Nicole Richie wore once with the buttons going towards an angle...it was lovely! and her jacket was only $8 !!!!! Thank Goodness for Thrift Stores !

Argh. I've been to thrift stores a couple times and I never seem to find anything. Am I doing something wrong?

Need help in Los Angeles...
I have a large assortment of quality vintage women's clothing, mostly from the late 50's - early 60's, and I am looking for a place that will buy the whole lot.

I live in the Los Angeles, CA area and any suggestions you can give me will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,
Louise

The best thing ive found at thrift stores was a small louis bag for $2, the lining was ruined, but for $2 who cares lol.


I find my best things from yard sales though, 2 vintage pradas, a vintage fendi... all for $2 or $3 each.

Go often, look through everything! That's pretty much all there is to it. Best if you cruise shops in the ritzy parts of town, as that's where Junior Leaguers will be casting off their Donna Karan and Lily Pulitzer and you can get a $300 dress for $12.

Yea, in order to find a goodie at a thrift store, u definitely do need patience. i usually take an entire day off and go through my favorite thrift stores here in Miami. its not always a gaurantee that you will find something (atleast not here), but the chances are definitely there so good luck to all!

I think thrift stores are great I think the smaller mom and pop ones are better than the large ones like Goodwill and Salvation Army.
