If one person’s trash is another’s treasure, it’s no surprise some of the best treasure hunting happens on the Upper East Side, where label-laden ladies donate gently worn goods to the Council Thrift Shop. The shop is a crowded jumble of random items—a pair of last season’s Manolo Blahniks, a digital tire gauge, an octopus plush toy. Stand-alone clothing racks are wedged against bookshelves cluttered with paperback books, delicate dishes, and stacks of records. Pint-sized rocking chairs and nightstands teeter atop black lacquer dining tables and ornately carved armoires. Curtained-off nooks serve as fitting rooms, while a smattering of handwritten signs regularly announce half-off sales on selected items. In case snagging deep discounts on designers like Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, and Stuart Weitzman starts to feel a bit indulgent, posters remind shoppers that the shop’s proceeds fund the National Council of Jewish Women’s programs, such as senior activities and feeding the hungry.
