Beacon's Closet was a mix between thrift and vintage stores aka they had cool and unique stuff with reasonable prices. I found some cheap cashmere sweaters which I couldn't resist although it was +30 degrees outside.
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. The trade option is quite orderly with a designated counter and knowledgeable staff that will allow you to watch as they inspect and price your used items."

...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.
