New York City boasts hundreds of little thrift stores, but luckily I’ve got one two minutes away from my suburban home, tucked at the back of a teeny church. It’s called Red Door Thrift and I’ve haunted it many times looking for discount furniture, clothes and books. It’s open only for three hours four days a week so I always have to plan my visits.
Last year I found a powder blue chest of drawers there for a mere $18. I also found a pair of vintage cowboy boots that were sadly not my size, and countless books. Inside:
I especially love the books: best sellers, out of print editions of classics, all kinds of genre fiction, big literature anthologies, and more abound. And best of all are the prices. I got six books for $4.50! That beats my 10% B&N discount for sure!
1. An Abundance of Katherines, John Green $.50
2. Candide, Voltaire $.50
3. The Toilers of the Sea, Victor Hugo, $1
4. Mrs. Arris Goes to Paris, $1
5. Highland Folktales $1
not pictured: a copy of Romeo & Juliet “No Fear Shakespeare” for my tutoree!
Love cheap books.
