Hour Children - Thrift Store, LIC, NY
I bought a couple of shirts there some days ago, and after a quick run through the laundry (they were already clean but I wanted them pressed) they were absolutely perfect. I paid six bucks for the two, and felt like I'd scored, which is how one should always feel when having purchased something from a thrift store. Also the woman running the place on the day I went in is was so much like a favorite character from a book I was reading, Into The Beautiful North by Luis Urrea, that I took something else home with me when I left... a sense of family.
I love this place!
Evaluation: Extraordinarily sincere!
