Our Ultimate Guide To NYC's Consignment Stores
By Seija Rankin

As NYC residents, we know a thing or two about small spaces. For those of us lucky enough to even have a closet in the first place, chances are it's stuffed to the brim, and with loads of unworn clothes, to boot. After all, it's hard to manage a shopping addiction with the storage space of a dollhouse. So, we're guessing your wardrobe could probably use a little TLC?

And, what better way to do some summer cleansing than by trading your duds in for some dollars? To help you out, we're showing you the best consignment shops in the city, from tiny East Village spots to well-known, labyrinthine meccas. Of course, if you find yourself with the shopping bug, these boutiques dole out vintage pieces with the best of 'em, too. Just make sure you clear out your drawers first.
Second Time Around

STA is a chain with outposts in all the best shopping cities, but the selection is just as good as if had just one local store. They accept consignments from boutiques, which means you're more likely to find your size. The owners choose the selection of each store based on the location and the style of each individual neighborhood.

Second Time Around, 262 Mott Street (between Elizabeth and Mulberry streets); 212-628-0980.
