an overpriced thrift shop

This Soho mainstay is more an overpriced thrift shop rather than a vintage shop. It is quite musty and the "vintage" smell is apparent when you enter. It's as if the clothes were bought at a local thrift shop and relocated here with a much higher price tag. The bags are a specialty here but the lackluster displays just detract from some beautiful bags. Who does their merchandising? Get with it. If you want to charge these inflated prices. There is no point of view only overcrowded racks of "old" clothes.

  • 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.
