New York’s bohemian culture has always copped its fashion cues from the ample amount of thrift stores this city has to offer. But as time has gone on and rents dramatically increased, many thrift stores have transformed into “vintage shops,” where items of used clothing are handpicked and sold for high fashion prices. We love them too, as evidenced by our list of 25 Favorite Vintage Stores in NYC, but here is our list of New York City’s great “legitimate” thrift stores which will help you stay ahead of the curve and look good for way less. Happy shopping!

Located on 771 Metropolitan Avenue, this Greenpoint thrift shop has a great selection of nearly everything. Notable among its collection is a huge amount of army apparel, which includes coats, jackets, and button downs of all sorts. Besides, where else in Brooklyn could you find a leather jacket for $20?
