discovering nooks around the corner.

one thing i love about new york city is you can turn on one corner and be in a whole new world.

this is a thrift shop in soho called housing works. they sell mostly designer stuff and a bit more expensive. as a point of reference, i found a new (w/ tags on it) steven alan messenger bag in there for $75, which normally retails for about $200. they also have housewares. shoes and cute vintage dresses. next door is their used bookstore with a nice cafe inside. everyone that works there is a volunteer because, like the brown elephant, they donate all the monies to end homelessness and AIDS.

also this street is real short, probably the length of this building, but these pictures were all taken in that one block.
