Chelsea Thrift Shop:Housing Works

Recently my daughter attended pre-college at The Fashion Institute of Technology which is located in an eclectic neighborhood in NYC called Chelsea. If you haven’t experienced Chelsea before be sure to stop by some of these favorite spots, Chelsea Market and High Line Park. She commuted by train but I took the opportunity to meet her after class to fit some shopping in. We stumbled upon this fabulous thrift store by Housing Works and I wanted to share some of the finds. This place is unique because it combines a nice mix of furniture and designer clothing. Typically I find thrift stores seem to be stronger in one area than another but this place was a real find. What an easy way to give back and get some good stuff. Housing Works engages in relentless advocacy in pursuit of their mission to end the dual crises of AIDS and homelessness. Feel good shopping, I love it. Check it out!

      This was is a great find and they have an on-line shop also if you are not close to NYC.

    What a great cause and I must say that the pieces you found are fabulous! I wish there were thrift stores half as good as this by my house.

      They updated their on-line store regularly so stop in and see what they have.
