Vintage does not equal thrift – The first thing you need to know about this store is that it is a vintage store, not a thrift store. It's slightly more reliable for finding good items than the Salvation Army or Good Will, but the higher prices don't exactly make it worthwhile. The employees are also a bunch of hipsters who are too cool for customer service. Don't waste your time asking for help so you can watch them act like you are wasting their time.
Beacon's Closet is a clothing exchange store. They selectively buy, sell, and trade used clothing and accessories, from, to, and with the public, on a walk-in basis. Beacon's Closet specializes in both ultramodern and vintage attire. What they buy is dictated by the following factors: season, demand, condition, and inventory levels.
My Gawd, when i walked into this amazing store my heart started to pound! I glanced around wide eyed at the color coded sections on the shop floor and thought how the hell am i going to have enough time to go through everything! Needless to say I became a regular visitor
Impressive is their selection of used CDs and high quality jeans. If you want to look like you paid through the nose to look like you did not spend more than $3 on your whole outfit this place is worth checking out.
They just have such great stuff at decent prices so you can't go wrong. Also, you can trade in your old clothes for new old clothes which is very exciting, especially if you're unemployed or underemployed!
If you want to find good clothes for pretty cheap in Brooklyn, this is the place to go.
I think it's worth looking through racks and racks of clothes because .you will definitely come out with something nice at a good price
This place is huge! If you are looking for good second hand very hip looking clothing, this is the place you should go. It will probably take you all day to look through everything though.
This is a great spot to unload some gear. The store excepts what is in season and in style, according to Williamsburgh style that is, which is where it is located. The drop-off, cash refund or shopping system is fair, easy to do and fast. The clothes that they do not want, they'll donate for you, which is convienant. Their is a huge selection of used clothing, accessories and music for sale.
This thrift store buys back your clothes and you have the option of using the buy as store credit. The clothes they carry are mainly of a hipster trend, but the prices cannot be beat. Very little in the store is over $20. The staff is friendly. The store usually has people walking around and trying things on, but there are enough spaces to test out the clothes that it isn't a problem. One of the best thrift stores in the area.
