One of Bushwick's staple vintage clothing stores! So close to home.

One of the best vintage shops in Brooklyn. A friend of mine got a vintage Gucci purse for $30 (valued at $500+). You will find some gems there. Men's wear is ok (in my opinion).

Massive warehouse of second-hand clothes. You can find new stuff that's never been worn here too (people who work in fashion and get free stuff that isn't their size sell their stuff here).

This is the best 2nd hand/vintage clothing store in NYC. Its very cheap too. Their clothing pickers are very picky, so they only take the best clothes to sell.

Fabulous specialty cheese shop with wide selection of high end cheeses, local chocolate, pickles, jams, candy and other items. Perfect spot to get items for entertaining.

This is where a woman pronounced that her two children had "advanced palates" when asking for guidance on which cheese to choose. The people behind the counter took her seriously. You should still go.

The stuff of legend, this place stocks hundreds of amazing cheeses from America and beyond. A must visit if you are a cheese fan!
