Kids and grown ups alike can get glamorous on the cheap with some of this week’s best sales.
Housing Works Fall Preview: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and in New York sometimes that trash includes designer labels at bargain prices. Housing Works is showcasing their newest import of gently used designer wear. Best part: proceeds always go toward preventing homelessness and the spread of HIV/AIDS in New York.
