Have you resolved to keep your closets clutter free? Or perhaps you are on the hunt for some trendy fashions without paying full price. Brooklyn's newest fashion hot spot The Underground Thrift Store at Plymouth.
It opened in September, this shop is a curated collection of high-end clothing, shoes and accessories and quality collectibles and glassware. Find fabulous brands that have been sold include Oscar de la Renta, Dries von Notten, Anne Fontaine, Chloe?, Michael Kors, Theory, Prada, Paul Stuart, Brooks Brothers, Gucci, Balenciaga, and Issey Miyake. Collectibles have included sterling silver candlesticks, depression-era glass, and crystal.
25% of the store’s net profits will be donated to organizations fighting modern-day slavery and human trafficking. Founded in 1847, Plymouth Church’s first minister was well-known abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher, brother of the anti- slavery novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe, best known for her novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The congregation at Plymouth Church will reconnect with its historic anti-slavery mission by donating a portion of the store’s profits to organizations fighting modern-day slavery and human trafficking.
