Thrift The 5 Boroughs for recycled gifts

New York is one of the most iconic cities in the USA. Besides hosting the iconic New York Marathon, it's the home to some of our favorite thrift shops! With so many amazing options throughout the 5 boroughs, you're sure to find something great for someone on your gift list this holiday season. As an added good will deed, they will know their gifts are helping out local business owners.

Following is our top 5 picks of thrift shops- one from each borough- that we recommend you check out if you're looking for a unique gem of a gift.


If you're a vintage lover, then the 10ft Single By Stella Dallas is your personal heaven. The Brooklyn-based store has everything from clothes and jewelry to home furnishings, so it's hard not find something for everyone!

Great place to find that statement necklace and gift a friend.


The Nothing New Thrift Shop is an amazing find in Staten Island. They have everything you need to revamp your home-clothes, shoes and bags galore! The shop also has furniture for those who want it or might be moving into their first apartment together as well as aromatherapy incenses that will make any room smell fabulous. The thrift shop also has their version of a book cafe, the "Sanctuary", where you can read & rest when you visit the space!


LoveDay 31 is the perfect place to find that one-of-a kind gift for your favorite person. They have jewelry from local designers as well as vintage clothing and accessories, which can all be found in variety on LoveDay 31! Keep an eye on the rack of cool tops, jackets and blouses for gals.


L Train Vintage not only provide quality vintage goods but also an enjoyable shopping experience. Whether you're looking for what they have or something else entirely, L Trains Vintage has probably got it! We like the East Village location of @ No Relation Vintage at 204 1st Avenue. There are 2 floors of rock n' roll vibe, hipster fun~ you will not walk away empty handed~cool

concert Tees make one of a kind gifts.


Housing Works is not your average thrift shop. The store sells high-end designer clothing, accessories and home decor with a side of social justice for those who want to make an impact in their community. All purchases from their retail locations support their work, which includes direct services for low-income New Yorkers and advocacy for social justice on the local and national level. Great place to spread some holiday cheer and love.

So, are you ready now to start your holiday thrift shopping for this year? There's nothing more important than supporting our local businesses when you do. We hope these ideas will encourage you to shop local this season - every little bit counts and keeps money within the community during these busy holiday times!
