Profile

Since 1948, this donation-based shop benefiting the Arthritis Foundation’s New York City chapter has been a choice destination for designer hand-me-downs. The outpost moved its stockpile of shoulder pad–sporting power suits and gala gowns to this roomier Upper East Side space in June 2008. A large selection of floor-grazing fur coats is displayed among bins of scarves, blouses, dress shirts, and cashmere sweaters. Bargain-seeking locals and label hounds head straight for the “boutique” rack behind the register, where labels include Chanel, Prada, and Yves Saint Laurent. The spread is known to be updated two to three times a day, depending on donations, and a one-at-a-time holding rule is gently enforced. A small, hit-or-miss shoe rack flaunts upscale finds alongside retro tchochkes—think Manolo Blahnik pumps and needlepoint throws—and the offerings are replenished daily.
