“Vintage Thrift in Gramercy stock an impressive selection of furniture and decor, considering how small it is. The prices are pretty reasonable too. It's a lot of clothing, but they sometimes have good furniture pieces and housewares. Be sure to stop by Housing Works around the corner, on 23rd Street.”

Scranberry Coop
“If you have access to a car, I highly recommend a trip to Scanberry Coop in Andover, NJ, which is only an hour from the city. It’s one of my favorite places, near my parents house, so whenever I'm home, I raid the place. They have an extensive selection of vintage art, furniture, and collectables, with some cool modern pieces mixed in. If you feel like exploring, there are a lot of great antique places nearby too, most of which are small mom and pop places, so the prices are great."
