This is the sort of thing you’ll find at a thrift store – spotted at the Astoria Salvation Army

So, yeah, we are a bit late to the party on this (NSFW), and now it’s quite the earworm. But it got us thinking – do you shop at thrift stores? And if so, where are the good ones? You really can find some treasures at such places. So clue us in! We’d love to know – leave us a comment here or via twitter at @queensnycity.


Last week we reported that demolition was soon to begin on the Salvation Army thrift store on the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 7th Street in Williamsburg, but the big remaining question was what would replace the building. As it turns out, it will be a new Salvation Army, according to Denise Richardson, the Salvation Army’s director of communications for the organization’s Greater New York division. Building plans have already been filed for a replacement structure. Major John G. Swires, who operates the store at 176 Bedford Avenue, says that “it will be replaced with new and improved Salvation Army Thrift store.” So take your Apple store rumors elsewhere…once again!
