Opened in October 2009, this small, pink Red Hook shop offers affordable new and used clothing for locals and bargain hunters. Well-priced dresses, jeans, shoes, and tees fill the women’s and kids' sections, while the men’s racks offer only thrift shoes and garb, with a large proportion of camouflage prints. Though the secondhand selection is typically hit-or-miss, recent finds include pairs of 7 For All Mankind and Joe’s Jeans for $40 apiece. Unlike the occasionally haphazard Goodwill store or Salvation Army, all the wares here are clean and neatly folded. New merchandise consists mainly of tees from Vintage Havana and Junk Food, as well as cutesy jewelry, sunglasses, and toys. The selection changes regularly, so check back often for the best deals.
