This thrift store benefits The Junior League, which raises money for charitable projects in the community, and sells high-end clothes and housewares.
Thrift store manager Maureen Naughton says she makes sure the clothes are only gently worn or in good enough shape to sell. Valuable items are often appraised before they are priced. Among the finds spotted on a recent visit: A pink Barneys New York dress for $65, Jimmy Choo heels for $45 and a lovely small vintage hat for $20. Also: a Vera Wang dress for $75 and $400 fur coats. For men, there were lots of Brooks Brothers and some Armani finds. The shop has a large housewares department, musical instruments and old records.Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays
