Best of New York 2007 • Shopping

Best Thrift Shop

  • rePop

    68 Washington Ave., Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, 718-260-8032

    RePop combines the overcrowded charm of an old-fashioned Parisian boutique with the promising clutter of a midwestern junk shop. It has both range (dolls’ heads, antique chemical bottles, taxidermy, ball gowns, mid-century-modern furnishings) and value. You might find a twentieth-century Danish lounge chair for under $300 or that human spine you’ve been looking for to round out your creepy-things collection. All the merchandise has been vetted for interest, so you’re spared picking through the bottom of boxes, and there are even artful window displays. On the first Friday of every month, there are art exhibitions by talented customers or Pratt students who live nearby.

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
