Used Clothing can take many exciting forms, from the old fashion thrift shop to shops with a focus on vintage, and on to the world of luxury high end consignment.  From the Lower East Side to Uptown, here is a guide to the best shops in Manhattan, an update to our previous guide to our 25 favorite vintage shops in Manhattan.

Pippin Vintage Jewelry

Pippin Vintage Jewelry located at 112 West 17th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue

Pippin Vintage Jewelry and Pippin Home are two separate shops sitting side-by-side at 112 West 17th Street and 112 1/2 West 17th Street.  While the jewelry shop has a street entrance, you will find the home shop down an alley between the buildings, which takes you to a hidden carriage house in the back.  Furniture and wallhangings are artfully set about the outdoor space, as you make your way to the entrance of the back building.  Also located on this same stretch of West 17th Street are the Angel Street Thrift Shop and a large Housing Works.


Pippin Vintage Jewelry opened in 2007 – a year after the Home Shop
