The Beauty of the Thrift Shop

Looking at trends from the current arts and music scene make it clear that the fashion trend is to embrace what is different. While you may be more comfortable with what’s familiar, there is something to be said for the discriminating shopper who ventures to the land of fashion unknown for unique and interesting outfits; the world of the previously owned.

Do your bank account a favor and check out some of the quirky designer consignment and thrift stores that the Hamptons has to offer. You may even enjoy the challenge of discovering hidden treasures; the vintage, the designer, and the unknown, label-less pieces of fashion gold hiding between the racks.

Intimidated? Don’t be. Some consignment and thrift stores make it easier than others to find something special to wear on your Hamptons getaway. The reward for your efforts will be knowing that your YSL blazer or Chanel cocktail dress only cost a fraction of the original price and you can bet that no one else will be wearing it this season.

Here are a number of Hamptons consignment and thrift stores where you can enjoy shopping for less.
