Favorite Stores In New York City
what are everyone's favorite stores in NYC?

why do you shop there?

what atmosphere do they have?

what is their core clientel?

what makes them unique to you?

what brands do they carry?

i just thought this would be an interesting topic to see why people shop where they do... to see what draws a consumer to a store... whether it be brands, exclusivity, or the atmosphere/sales reps.

Those stores sound awesome, but how are their prices? I'm making a list of places to go when I next visit NYC, but I'm on a budget.

hi, eloes.

the shops i mentioned can get expensive. although filthmart is quite cheap, sinse its a second hand shop. the jeans and concert tees are the most expensive items. jeans are about $ 140 usd. turntablelab is a music shop, they have graphic tees that run around 20 bucks, but everything they carry is pretty cool. those are cheap shops so you can have fun w/out dropping g's

DDCLab + other shops in Orchard St
