Goodwill Greenwich Village Boutique

44 West 8th Street (b/t 6th Ave. & MacDougal)

Our Boutique’s in DailyCandy & on NY1!

The Goodwill Greenwich Village Boutique is getting a lot of attention – and for good reason! DailyCandy listed the Goodwill Boutique alongside dazzling downtown & Brooklyn boutiques Misha Nicole, Tess Giberson, Overbey & Dunn, and Dara Ettinger, naming us one of the debut boutiques “where we’ll be shopping this spring.” Take a look:

Goodwill Greenwich Village Boutique
The space: Pack it up; pack it in. When it comes to charity resell, quantity and overflowing racks trump trendy minimalism.
The goods: We’ve long understood the correlation between an area’s uppity reputation and the selection at the local Goodwill. Following that logic, expect to find some treasures.
Go if: You’ve got shallow pockets and deep compassion.
See at: 44 W. 8th St., b/t Sixth Ave. & MacDougal St. (212-477-7024).

We even got a mention in NY1’s Weekend Feature!: “Who doesn’t love a Goodwill?” Daily Candy Editor Lauren Lumsden asked before mentionning her own recent finds in the shop. You can watch the video this week (though not after, so act fast!) at www.ny1.com/content/features/weekend_features/

Ready to play fashion journalist yourself? Come by and show us your own finds – we can’t wait to see the treasures you stylish thrifters spot!

Bags galore - all in great condition and all at a fantastically affordable price!
Speaking of handbags, how about this baby? Does that look like Spring, or what?
Shoes of all shapes, kinds, and straps. Who doesn't need some strappy sandals for the summer flings to come?
We swooned at these man's legit leather shoes - shoe-shaper included! - for just $29.999
But what about the kiddies? We've got them covered, too - and then some... What a spread!
Finally, for us, this photo says it all - $69.99 for a Vera Wang gown? Only at Goodwill.
