When is a thrift shop more than a thrift shop? When it’s a Housing Works thrift shop.

The New York City-based non-profit runs a chain of 12 thrift shops (along with a number of other enterprises) in the city to support their work fighting AIDS and homelessness.

Their advocacy has made an enormous difference, and their wonderful thrift shops, which reflect the perfect balance between charity thrift shop and vintage boutique, allow you to support good causes while finding your perfect recycled threads. That works.
