There is another “Unique Boutique” but this one is in Chelsea and what fun it is. I had previously written about this shop very briefly in Chapter 5 but I thought this shop worthy of going into more depth. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it had quite a few customers perusing the racks and bookshelves. Like the other Unique Boutique on the Upper East Side, this one has quite a bit to offer. If you have the patience, there are some really great finds. And what is the crème de la crème is that there is a Tasti-D-Lite less than a block away. Life doesn’t get much better for me than finding some really great deals at a thrift store 🙂 and then having some of my most favorite frozen yogurt!

There are racks and racks of ladies and men’s clothing with quite the selection. And they have the color coded tag sales so Sunday orange tags were 50% off. I saw all good quality clothes with a wide variety of style and fashion. There was a Michael Kors dress that literally needed maybe 6-8 stitches on a seam marked down to 12.99. They had a very nice dress selection along with a good selection of jeans, skirts and shoes. They had summer clothes in abundance.

The bookshelves are packed and they must have a really good selection, a gentleman had a pile of 8 hardcovers and they were going for $2.00 each and he seemed to be thrilled with his selections and he told me he was only half way done going through the shelves.


The only issue I had was that the men’s suits seem to be priced on the high side; I saw a generic non-label suit that was $54.99 which I thought was a bit overpriced.

I must also mention that the people that run this shop are so nice and professional and ever so helpful.


There are so many great thrift stores in this area; you can spend a whole day in this area visiting them all and enjoy each and every one.
