Summer is literally a stone’s throw away, which means that it’s time to restock your wardrobe. Instead of paying full price for an outfit you’re going to wear once, try shopping at some great resale stores where you can buy awesome designer for cheap.
I guess the idea of wearing something that was previously rocked by another woman is kind of nerve wracking; however, it is a frugal way to stay fly seasonally. Technically speaking, all clothing that you buy is used, so why not get some super fly pieces for dirt-cheap. Luckily, not all thrift stores are like the Salvation Army. Here are a few secondhand stores that have a decent selection of clothing and things.

1. Buffalo Exchange
Price Range: $$$
Buffalo Exchange is on the pricey side as far as thrift stores go. Reason being, most of there clothes are in pretty good condition. They also sell a lot of designer items for much cheaper than retail value. You can sell your items and cash out as well.
They have a diverse style. Mostly current trends and styles. They have some vintage, depending on what location you go to.
There are five locations in NYC. 2 in Brooklyn, 2 in Manhattan and 1 in Queens.
2. Second Time Around
Second time around is more like a consignment shop. They take in very lightly worn or new items that are in absolute perfect condition. Their slogan is “resale goes upscale.”
Price Range: $$$$
Style: Trendy and some vintage. Mostly designer.
They have been open for over 35 years.
3. Beacon’s Closet
Beacon’s closet is probably one of the less expensive quality thrift stores. They buy clothing outright and are a little less selective compared to other thrift stores.
Price Range: $$
Vintage meets chic. Beacon’s Closet has everything from street wear to vintage pieces. Most locations are extremely crowded because of their high levels of intake, but It’s not hard to find some cute items inside.
The person who originally started Beacon’s closet originally worked at Buffalo Exchange before venturing off.
