The best thing about the Cure is the furniture, this is the best thrift furniture in Manhattan. The place has everything and is organized in room sections:
- Office - some nice mid century furniture dotted around
- A book area. Flora perusing the selection.
This thrift store is gigantic (remember there is no space in Manhattan!) and I was very impressed. I fell in love with a couple of furniture pieces, and although I spotted some good deals, the majority had a hefty tag - cheaper than an antique shop but not exactly thrifty. You pay for the good selection and nice layout. The basement is filled with clothes, shoes and handbags - and has a men's section. Luckily they have a big spring sale going on - they advertise their sales on their website and on craigslist - and for the last two sale days they will be holding a $15 per stuffed bag. Watch this space!
For the love of thrift rating (from 1 to 10):
Selection: 9 (10 if you're looking for furniture)
Niceness of staff: 8
Bargain factor (ie pricing): 7
Thrift turnover: 8
