What you'll do

We will begin our shopping adventure by meeting at a local bakery café for a little chat beforehand where I will gift to you my exclusive list of additional boutiques — complete with a brief description to enjoy more shopping on your own.

We'll visit 3+ of my favorite vintage and resale stores. In each store I'll help you hunt for new gems to accent your wardrobe. You can expect to spend up to 20 minutes at each location, try on new clothes, take photographs, and even upload your new trendy look to your favorite social media platform.

Please your heels behind and wear comfortable shoes. We'll be walking between shops and you'll want to be comfortable. Dress in clothing you can easily change in and out of.

I moved to Manhattan in the 1980s to study design, and absolutely fell in love with the city. I love vintage shopping, trying on different styles, and going out, which prompted me to start up my own website, writing about the mico-enterprise businesses that make this city so special. To me, shopping has always been a kind of sport, and I enjoy sharing my expertise with others.

While hosting my exclusive 'Shop Cheap & Chic Manhattan' experience on Airbnb (80+ reviews) I have recently created this 2 & 1/2 hour version just for you!

Fun, fun time. Learned what to look for when thrifting, be it vintage, classic or trendy. Catered to both 58 yo mom & 20 yo daughter. I had another commitment & left my daughter with Suzanne for time beyond tour. Yes, they had a blast.

Well Suzanne is your way to know all the 2nd hand shops in NYC. She knows a lot of places and she will style you up ;). But i really recommend this experience for ppl btw 40-70 of age. If you are looking for teenagers or baby clothes , probably you will not enjoy the time there ...

I can't believe how many fabulous items I picked up at fabulous prices. Most of them were found by Suzanne. She was masterful at pulling clothes off the rack for me that I wouldn't have seen on my own, while being zero percent pushy about buying. She knows brands and quality. And she chose great shops in the first place. This started as a whirlwind shopping experience, in and out of each shop in 20 minutes. I can spend a couple hours in one store, I like to ponder my final decisions, and I don't get to go shopping very often, so whipping through the racks and dressing rooms was hard to impossible for me. Best for people on the hunt for a few specific items in mind -- which the others in our group were. I decided to see it as an introduction to great shops I could return to later. And an invitation to be more picky, looking for special items instead of everyday items. Suzanne was kind to slow things down later for me, though. I also ended up appreciating the efficiency and coming away with so many things. This experience is definitely for women. I had signed my husband up to join. Suzanne pointed us to shops that had stuff for guys, but she wasn't equally looking for items for him. Still, overall Suzanne made sure we got the value. We enjoyed chatting with her as well. I'm supremely grateful that I had Suzanne's expert guidance on this trip!

Suzanne is great. New York Shopping is great. I had a wonderful afternoon. Go with an idea of a special item or clothing that you would like to find on your treasure hunt - Suzanne has a wealth of ideas, experience and enthusiasm. She is great company and moves fast but does not crowd and is relaxed in her approach - this works brilliantly. She gave me loads of ideas for more adventures Highly recommend.
