The lack of decor at this tiny thrift shop allows shoppers to focus on the vast mix of consignment duds (expect anything from an 1840s wedding gown to silver-sequined hot pants). It requires some digging on your part, but hidden steals may include a Zac Posen leather shoulder bag ($200), a rope belt ($30) and a cheeky everybody loves a nerdy boy tee ($16). The racks stuffed with prairie dresses ($28–$250) and designer scarves (such as a Christian Dior style for $95) displayed around the store are worth an hour of sifting, but beware of tears and holes. Scan the always-present 50-percent-off rack for cheap jeans and tanks ($8–$12).
