When i first found Beacon's, i shopped there for hours. They have a ton of stuff and good dressing rooms. Besides the cool, used clothes, they have brand new jewelry, scarves, and other accessories. You can't beat the prices. I got a retro, neon trench for $25 and a bag for $2.

Best fix for a Brooklyn shopaholic

I can't get out of this place without four shopping bags. I've been going to Beacon's Closet since they opened six years ago, in their previous location, and their new, more spacious digs are nirvana for anyone craving a fashion fix or needing to find something specific for a production or event. The clothes are organized by item and color, and the prices are well below what you'd expect to pay. Most everything is in fine condition however if you think you'll make some money selling your stuff here, think again. Best days to sell are Mondays and the more nicely presented the items are the better your chances of getting money for them. I've found Donna Karan, Martin Margiela, Oscar De La Renta and Calvin Klein items nestled in with no name stuff and last season's line from H&M so... You just never go. Go,you'll have a blast and the music section is terrific too.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
