"This past Thanksgiving weekend we were lucky enough to go to the "Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of" and purchase new merchandise for our store. Luckily there is a bunch of thrift stores in NYC, Soho to be exact, with designer labels at a discounted prices.
Day 1: Overwhelmed with excitement, we went to the actual stores that inspire the type of clothing and accessories we sell at TBR. First stop was MM by Maison Martin Margiela, which gave us all nominal heart attacks. We then stopped at Marc by Marc Jacobs, just because. Carried ourselves to Bergdorfs which made us realize "You are more poor than you think" and of course the other famous retail names (Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton (RIP Marc Jacobs).
Day 2: After an overwhelming lunch at Eataly we trekked to Soho and started our hunt. The first thrift store we stopped at was Finderz Keeperz which had an extreme hipster feel to it. You could find the most unimaginable garments there. Next was Housing Works which was where we found most of our items and also met a friendly pooch.
Day 3: Was spent doing some last minute shopping at the Woodbury outlets, for some discounted high end pieces, and spending four hours at the border.
All in all our trip was very successful, and we'd love to visit again very soon!"
