When we lived in New York we frequented our neighborhood Housing Works and Angel Street Thrift shops. But we were always in the East Village so how did we miss the Cure Thrift Shop? I just checked out some pretty good looking merchandise on their Tumblr – old mirrors, books, albums (including a Manhattan soundtrack!), typewriters, frames, and clocks. I even saw Hitchcock’s mystery magazines, which I would have scooped. Purchases benefit the Diabetes Research Institute. So if you live in NYC, I think it might be worth a looksie. Some of their sales this month:
- March 19th – 21st: 50% of all clothes, shoes, accessories, and books
- March 23rd & 24th: Stuff a bag with all the clothes you can for $15.
- March 26th, 5 to 10 pm: Spring home and fashion V.I.P. launch party ($5 donation).
