The Vintage plan: Pt. 2
Okay, so I've found two more stores that you may want to hear about:
1. Buffalo Exchange:
I'm planning to visit NYC one of these days and sadly, Plato's Closet does not exist there (Yet?). So when my buddy told me about Buffalo Exchange, which does exactly what Plato's does, while throwing vintage into the mix, I was over-joyed. Buffalo Exchange is also located in a couple of other cities so peep the webbie to see if there is a store near you.
2. Goodwill Outlet:
Not to be confused with regular Goodwill Stores, the items in these stores come from various nearby Goodwill Locations in the area, usually stuff that didn't sell in 6 weeks. Why is this section in bold? Because here clothes, shoes, and accessories sell for $0.99 a piece, or less than $2 a lb! Now of course, as part of the vintage plan don't be surprised if you run into a brand name piece or two, just be prepared to dig around to find the goodies. Also you should find out when your local outlet brings in new stuff, so that you'll be one step closer to getting some super sweet deals. Remember, some damaged items can be fixed or made into something else, and for less than $2? SWEEEEEEEEEET!!!
If you don't see your city on the list try the Goodwill locator, I found one in NYC, but it wasn't listed on the list above!
3. This is not a store, but if you are looking for flea markets here are a couple of resources, to help you find what you are looking for.
