My favorite gently used clothing store is a California-based one, called Crossroads Trading Company, so imagine my surprise and delight when I heard that one opened in NYC in the Flatiron District. I also found out that there is one in Brooklyn, which in the back of my head I knew but never really frequented.
Crossroads carries some of the hottest brands, such as:
- Alice + Olivia
- Zac Posen
- Elizabeth and James
- Helmut Lang
- J Brand
- All Saints
During my first visit to the NYC store, I picked out some real gems. The first was a Worthington shiny-nude colored long skirt, with an overlay of pale peachy pink-gold colored lace in filmy material. This skirt was a steal at $8.50.
I also snagged a Zara blue striped wrap shirt and a Pleione white chiffon button down with a black sequin collar (from Nordstrom Rack). They were $13.50 and $12.50 respectively.
I also tried on a super cute white and grey fur sleeveless jacket with tan trim and button details, but ended up not buying it for practicality’s sake.
Take a shopping trip to Crossroads Trading Company, or bring in your fashionable spring-wardrobe items that you want to get rid of, and see if you can make some money. I promise, you will not be disappointed!
