It’s a good time to be a bargain hunter in New York City. Spring cleaning means NYC thrift shops are about to get some of their best fashion donations of the year.
New Yorkers are finicky. We want the latest styles and fashion, but we all know, our closets run out of room. When that happens, we put some of our old favorite shirts and jeans in a bag and drop them off at the closest thrift shop.

It will likely find a new home at a local thrift shop.
