The Thrifty Hog – High-End Thrifting at its Best and All for a Great Cause! — April 22, 2022

The Thrifty Hog – High-End Thrifting at its Best and All for a Great Cause!

When you walk into the Thrifty Hog, you feel like you are in an upscale boutique. The impeccable displays, the friendly staff, and the unique selections all make the shop dazzling. This shop is well-curated to give you the ultimate shopping experience.  Make no mistake; this is not your average thrift store. With donations from high-profile models, designers, fashion influencers, and beauty experts, to name a few, there is no shortage of fabulous on any given day. But what makes the Thrifty Hog extraordinary is that The Thrifty Hog’s net proceeds directly fund programs that help homeless mothers and their children.

The Founder & CEO of the Thrifty Hog is Deborah Koenigsberger. She is also the Founder & CEO of the nonprofit charity Hearts of Gold.  Hearts of Gold’s mission and its purpose is reimagining the future of homeless mothers and their children.  Their programs work with these moms to become confident and self-sufficient as they prepare to transition from New York City shelter system into permanent homes. The Thrifty Hog’s (an acronym for Hearts of Gold) net proceeds directly fund Hearts of Gold’s programs and services. Deborah’s efforts on behalf of Hearts of Gold have been featured on NY1, CBS New York, and Fox News, to name a few. Here is a link that will give you an in-depth look at Deborah and Hearts of Gold. https://www.heartsofgold.org/whatwedo

The pictures do not do the Thrifty Hog justice; only a visit there will. The selections are unique and unlike any other thrift/consignment store that you go to. You will pay more for designer duds, but you are getting the designers we all crave at a significant discount on original pricing. And there is plenty of affordable merchandise for sale throughout the store, especially in the accessories section. The inventory has a high turnover rate because the shop is trendy and in a high foot traffic area. Please do yourself a favor and make it a point to go to the Thrifty Hog. Well worth a trip or two or three.

City Opera Thrift Shop Revisited — November 12, 2015

City Opera Thrift Shop Revisited

I just had to revisit City Opera Thrift Shop because I keep hearing so many great things about them. This place is a New York staple and has been in business thirty-five years. Featured in Vogue as “the highest quality thrift shop in New York,” the City Opera Thrift Shop is the city’s only charity SHOP supporting the arts.  Browsing through City Opera is just a great experience and they have some truly amazing merchandise in this store. If you have a black tie event, this should be your first stop. The clothing, especially the evening wear is absolutely unique and spectacular. I have seen dozens of skirts, blazers and tons of little black dresses, one better than the other and all REASONABLY PRICED. And this shop just gets better with age!! The clothing is top notch and in great condition too so you can’t ask for more than that. They have a great shoe selection as well.

The front of the store does hold some very special treasures in the form of bags and costume jewelry. You must check this out. All I can say is WOW! Although, I bet the turnover is pretty quick in this boutique.

Don’t Forget the beautiful upstairs – they have some pretty incredible home décor as well as a massive book section. There is also furniture and art work.

This is probably one of the very best thrift shops that the city has to offer. It makes all the lists every year. I highly recommend that you visit City Opera, you will not be disappointed.
