Give Good Works, which the Miami New Times named Best Secondhand Store in 2009, equips customers with an ever-changing array of lightly used vintage clothing items, antique and modern housewares, and one-of-a-kind treasures. Volunteers at the accredited 501(c)(3) charitable organization diligently stock the shelves with items including books ($2.50), designer handbags ($9.75+), and DVDs ($5.75). Visitors explore the archive of urban relics in search of vinyl LPs ($2.50) to feed home stereo systems. Vintage clothing items ($9.75+) allow wearers to infuse their wardrobes with classic style, and designer shoes cloak toes in modernity like a foot rub from an astronaut. A selection of kitchen instruments allows homeowners to stock up on necessities, and children's clothing items ($1) and linens ($5.75) keep patrons stocked with backup supplies for growing kids and beds. Give Good Works funds a variety of community services with proceeds from sales.
