Salvation Army Family Store Chelsea

Located a block away from Murray’s Bagels is the fabulous local Salvation Army.

Grab your hand sanitizer and dive right in, taking your sweet time to find phenomenal treasuresin a sea of second hand mediocrity. Also look at the artwork, jewelry and knickknacks for some amazing discoveries to take back home. Make sure you have a back pack or reliable small bag on wheels. There’s also UPS shipping facilities in the area for that must have bulky purchase. 

ACTUAL FINDS! All IN PRISTINE CONDITION Paid between $4-$40 each

A shoppers high never gets old just like my love for New York City.

A blend of history, progress, diversity, creativity all expressed on the streets and 

in the local resale shops which to me are like living cultural museums.
