Thrift Store shopping in NYC is an amazing experience and if you do it on the Upper East side you will get some very upmarket items at great prices.
At Memorial Sloan-Kettering Thrift Store I’ve seen the entire contents of apartments; furniture, clothes, art, books, all at knock down prices.
At the Lifeshitz Gallery you can get great household goods and at Michael’s Consignment store great designer clothing.
There’s a group of thrift stores on Madison Ave, Third Ave, East 81st, East 84th so you can make a day of it and go shopping.
Type ‘Upper East Side Thrift Stores’ into Google and you’ll get all the store names, addresses and what each one sells.
Thrifting is one of the best NYC experiences around. Your friends will LIKE to find bargains and if you do it together you can SHARE thrifting war stories.
