Bargain hunters on the prowl for cheap designer duds should stop by this permanent location for the thrift shop’s popular Buy the Bag sale. Shell out $25 for a large paper bag, which you can fill with as much merch as you can squeeze into it. Expect rows of caged-metal containers stuffed with gently used goods—some of which require a bit of TLC—in the middle of the floor and house rules (no individual sales, no horseplay) printed on the walls. We spotted a Max Mara cotton paisley-print dress, a Theory accordion-pleated skirt and an Armani Exchange bodycon pencil skirt that needed a bit of mending. As always, 100 percent of the proceeds help those affected by HIV/AIDS.
