There are 13 Housing Works thrift shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn, each of which offers some great finds. Looking for the perfect heels to wear to the dance? You might just get lucky enough to pick up a pair of Manolo Blahniks or Jimmy Choos, or perhaps some Burberry boots. The big names in fashion are all here at Housing Works. Complete with an online look-book, Amarcord is the shop you want to visit to find the best in vintage. Around for 16 years now, Amarcord has 3 separate locations — two in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan.

The best vintage stores in NYC
By Sarah Shaker. No Relation Vintage is a large shop filled with printed t-shirts, furs, military jackets and leathers. Check out an affordable shoe section lining the back walls. To find hidden gems, shoppers will have to spend some time searching the racks.
With thousands of vintage clothing shops and boutiques around the city, it is usually hard to sort out the wheat from the chaff, and not get ripped off in the process. But the game is truly worth the candle. We like: the idea of sorting vintage clothing and accessories by color, which really simplifies the search. When standing outside of the shop, one has no idea of how big this place is.
