- $12 for $20 worth of second-hand clothing
Every week, the curators of Second Image add a staggering 4,000 new items to their clothing racks. Well, maybe "new" isn't quite the right word—the garments have been worn before, hailing from closets they've recently outgrown. Seen by a new pair of eyes, these shirts, pants, dresses, jewelry pieces, and accessories get a fresh reimagining, and go home with shoppers who add them to their personal wardrobes. Like Albert Einstein, however, the thrift store is actually known for more than a keen fashion sense. That’s because the collection also encompasses items like toys, books, and electronics. And, due to frequent sales and specials, the shop makes it easy to stock up without emptying one's wallet.
