On Sunday I checked out Amarcord’s Vintage Warehouse in Williamsburg where all items were said to be no more than $10; you pretty much can’t beat that price in New York City. Sorted by type of clothing item, the racks were filled with a mix of great summery 90's maxi dresses, vintage campy t-shirts, and a row of knee-length plaid skirts. There were a few tables with vintage totes and pocketbooks selling for $2 and a rack full of random castaways, which ironically had the best stuff: wine-colored velvet high-waisted pants, 70’s sweaters, and my favorite find, a green Pucci-looking top—and yes, all was $5 and under.I ended up purchasing a floral green and yellow maxi dress and a black and white scribble-patterned dress. Together they cost only $8. MAJOR SCORE! I plan to cut the scribble dress into a mini-dress.
The awesome Pucci-looking top I found for $5!
All of pairs of shoes were $1 each, though I didn’t see any I liked. It was a mix of sporty canvas flats, 1940’s heels, clogs, and espadrilles.
Leaving the warehouse sale my friend and I passed by a street vendor where we admired these plastic rings of the likes of The Smurfs, Hello Kitty, and the Teletubbies. When we asked how much she was selling them for, the vendor replied “that crap? You can take them for free!” It was her loss because I’ve worn my Hello Kitty ring every day since.
