Window Display Inspiration: Thrift Revisted

If you've been stopping by for a while you may remember my fascination with the surreal window displays at the Housing Works Thrift Shop.

I snapped these shots last night on my way home from work. Doesn't it look like something you'd see visiting your eccentric old auntie who lives in some wonderfully decayed mansion with strappy stilettos hanging from the light fixtures? I so want to chat and have tea with the old lady that lives here:


As I mentioned in my previous post, one of the great things about the shop, aside from the displays and the fact that purchases support those living with AIDS is that you can shop virtually:


Right now they have a sweet pair of Manolo Blahniks and the bidding is only $25! Place your bid here.

Good luck!

Hi there-what a gorgeous place, I'd love to have a rummage here!! Can you go back for that YSL skirt? For the price, it sounds worth it to me!! You would never lose on it if you changed your mind in the future!

Actually - this is the thrift that I found the YSL at...sadly someone much smarter than I snatched it up because it's gone :-(

Oh thats a shame-I'm sure it won't be too long before you bag a real good thrift find!!

The store sounds amazing! Reminds me of a store quite similar here. Too bad about the YSL skirt, but I am sure you will bag another treasure soon! Have a great weekend.
