Housing Works: Thrift Shop

leave a comment »

Apropå både Housing Works och second hand-butiker: granne med fiket på Crosby Street ligger Housing Works utmärkta Soho-shop (130 Crosby Street). Synd att både Miu Miu- och Marc by Marc Jacobs-skorna var tre storlekar för stora. Andrahandsaffärer (då menar jag inte mer välsorterade vintagebutiker) i områden där invånarna har en förkärlek för dyra märkeskläder innebär ofta stor fyndfaktor. Det här är en sådan, med priser från cirka 30 dollar och uppåt. Min vän Carolyn säger att den är lite ojämn, men vi fick båda med oss en varsin påse!

ENGLISH: Talking about both Housing Works and thrift shops: neighboring the book cafe on Crosby Street you find Housing Works excellent Soho-shop (130 Crosby Street). Such a pity that both the Miu Miu and the Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes were three sizes to big. Second hand-shops (and I don’t mean those well-sorted vintage stores) in areas where the residents have a fondness for expensive designer clothes usually equals bargains. With prices starting at around 30 dollars, this is one of those. My friend Carolyn says it can be a bit uneven, but we both left with a bag in hand.
