With four locations around the city — Greenpoint, Park Slope, Bushwick, and Manhattan — you really can’t talk about thrift store shopping in Brooklyn without talking about Beacon’s Closet. You can get anything and everything here, from work clothes at low prices to fab vintage lamé hot pants and the hot pink fishnets to wear under them.
"a highly selective second-hand thrift store with locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Turnover is speedy so regular visits to check for new merchandise is recommended.

...vintage shop Beacon’s Closet relocated their flagship store to Greenpoint. What they didn’t tell anyone was that they’ve also been working on another location in Bushwick, at 23 Bogart Street. “Greenpoint is the flagship store, this one is an adorable store,” founder Carrie Peterson told us.
Established in Brooklyn in 1997, this vintage store purchases and sells clothing and shoes. Drop by any day of the week during store hours and bring in unwanted clothing that is in good condition. The staff at Beacon is happy to assess your items and give you either 35% cash on the retail value that they decide on, or a 55% credit towards shopping in their store.
