At this little shop, all the clothing is downstairs. It's a great mix of vintage and regular thrift. I chatted up a very nice salesperson, who was interested in what over-40 women blog about! He helped me find a divine maxi skirt - deep blue velvet wrap-around with an embroidered waistband. True to my new form, I wore it out of there and donated my black Banana Republic skirt.

Not on my list, but I stumbled upon East Village Thrift. Score! Superb stock and real thrift prices. I had to restrain myself due to carrying limitations, but I'll be back. I bought a scarf and a beanie hat, and a gorgeous silk Anthropologie blouse ($8). You'll see that when I am back in warmer weather.

Another treasure trove is No Relation Vintage. They had a huge stock of faux and real fur coats for $20 - $75. And with temps expected to hit 32 degrees tonight (and snow!), I was tempted. I bought a cozy faux fur scarf instead. But I am going back -- they have lots of high-end bags for $40 - $50. Kooba, Michael Kors, Coach and more.
Wish you all were here!
Later today (in addition to sleet and freezing rain): a vocal performance at NYU for $5. This is a great city.
