Housing Works to Open New Location in Soho

Housing Works is continuing its quest for total domination of Manhattan. After opening a store in Tribeca last month, today it announced a new store opening at 130 Crosby Street in Soho, right next door to its bookstore-café, making the Soho location their ninth. But the more the merrier, we say. Because there's no better time for more thrift stores than right now. Stock already reserved for the grand opening — pictured above — includes a Marni leather purse ($150), Vivienne Westwood stilettos ($110), Moschino platform pumps ($100), a Diane Von Furstenberg dress ($90), a Marc Jacobs denim zip jacket ($70), and an Etro men’s dress shirt ($65). Doors open April 25.
