Unlike secondhand clothes, secondhand fruit is useless thanks to an overabundance of juggle wounds. Enjoy secondhand products untainted by clowns with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of apparel, furniture, and clothing at Housing Works Thrift Shops. This Groupon is valid at 10 locations in Manhattan and two in Brooklyn.
Housing Works Thrift Shops brim with an award-winning cache of gently used wares whose sales provide New York’s HIV/AIDS-afflicted homeless and low-income residents with lifesaving services. To learn more about donating to these efforts click here. Housewares prove the most popular recruits, from delicate decorative plates to heavy, antique hope chests. Patrons earn the respect of Park Avenue mannequins with designer apparel that, in the past, has included threads by Chanel, Valentino, and Gucci. Artwork sprinkles the store’s shelves as well, and a recent auction included prints and lithographs by P. Van Hoeydonck, Esteban Vincente, and other modern artists. Although the inventory changes regularly, apparel typically ranges from $10 to $200, home goods from $10 to $150, and furniture from $25 to $2,000.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Housing Works Thrift Shops a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
Housing Works provides advocacy, job training, healthcare and housing support for low-income and homeless people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Housing Works Thrift Shops and Buy the Bag help fund this effort by selling new and used donated goods. Shoppers can explore shelves upon shelves of donated items in search of a new designer shirt, a vintage necklace, or a set of hand-painted bowls.
