Profile

Green Village Used Furniture & Clothing (better known as Sidney's, after manager Sidney Ober) was kicked out of its longtime Driggs Avenue home in 2004. Ten thousand square feet of—let's face it—junk was shipped to a new location that will stun regulars with its downright normal amenities. First, there's natural light, courtesy of real windows. Second, there are neat, wide, and easily navigated rows of clothing, shoes, bags, books, pottery, glassware, furniture, record albums, electronics, you name it. Third: shopping baskets. Fourth (and the real shocker): price tags on everything. This ends the fun tradition of finding Sidney to ask a price, waiting as he scratched his head, looked at you, looked at the item, and finally said, "Eh, two dollahs." But don't worry too much. Sidney is still running around, supervising deliveries, chatting up customers, and, yes, haggling.
