There's agreat thift shop on Roosevelt Island (take the F train. Not to be confused with Roosevelt Avenue). If you come at the right time they have 1/2 price sales (mostly after holidays) and the price for something always changes depending on who's there. That's really the only one in Manhattan I go to.

I am a thrift shop nut as well and have found loads of them around 23rd street on the east side - just walk btw Park and 2nd Ave on 23rd street and keep your eyes open.  There are at least 6 that come to mind in that general area.  One is called the Opera Thrift shop and another is Salvation Army (I think).  There's also another on 3rd and 29th? and another down on 26th?  Both on 3rd avenue.  Also if you search yellow pages there is a whole category of thrift shops and you can get a whole list of them and Go mad!!! Shocked

You can also look on the web for local chapters of the Junior League. They always have fabulous thrift stores.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.

when I visited new york i found a salvation army in manhattan and there was another on broadway (but that should have been called "Overpriced Vintage Clothing") and there was another I found but I'm not sure what it was called or where it was. I'll have to ask my brooklyn friends who went there with me where it was at

I took a vintage shopping workshop at FIT a couple of years ago. It was two Saturday mornings and cost about $70. We went to several shops that were new to me and of course the flea markets on 6th Ave. It was pretty fun.

I have a national directory of charity thrift shops that I hope you'll find useful.

There's a Goodwill 2nd ave and 90th st. (somewhere around there). There is also a HUGE stretch of various thrift shops (arthritis, cancer care, etc.) along 3rd ave from around 79th to 85th.
