Thrifty Paradise, Babylon, NY

Great little shop at 239 deer park ave. very clean and has a little of everything. Looks more like a boutique than a thrift store. Love it! Found many treasures.


The Amvets thrift store on sunrise hwy in Copiague. Opened about a year or so ago. Nice, clean & friendly. And who wouldn't want to help out our Vets?

Newer Thrift Shops as of 3/'13

There's a new Island Thrift on rte 112 in Medford. Also, as I'm sure you already know, Unique in Levittown is on 2 floors: clothing, furniture, baby items in the basement, and all the rest on the main floor that it shares with the Tri-County Flea Market. Savers is another mega-thrift; one on Hempstead Tpk in W. Hempstead, and one on the north side of Sunrise Highway, near Bohemia. The Savers in Levittown (in what used to be the Levittown Roller Rink :( )is now closed and has become a Texas Roadhouse restaurant. Another good one is AmVets in Lindenhurst on the South side of Sunrise.

Cassidy's Closet

One of the nicest and trendiest thrift shops around. The clothing is in great shape with all of the best junior brands. In the Massapequa area.

Worst Thrift Nomination

SELDEN THRIFT. Wow, prices are literally double of CURRENT retail prices. Everything is priced on ebay before tagging. Video game priced at $20 regardless of CURRENT gamestop tag of $10. This is no thrift store, it is a glorified retail store. Go somewhere else for thrift shopping
—Guest YUP!!


Cassidy's Closet is, by far, the best thrift shop that I have been to. It is adorable, clean, clothing in near new condition, and the staff is great! Also have a huge line of new accessories. I think they opened in 2011. They carry all Abercrombie, Hollister, Juicy, etc. . . Located in Massapequa Park.

Finders Keepers in Lake Grove

By far the best! Every item is in great shape and clean. I've gone in looking for 3 things at a time and have ended up finding all three. Friendly and honest owners that are a pleasure to visit with. Something new every day. A real adventure in past and present. Great prices too! Or should we be keeping this place a secret?

New Thrift Store

We just opened a new thrift store on Middle Country Road in Lake Grove (across from Good Steer)
—Guest Finders Keepers

a hidden gem

My favorite thrift store is St Mary's Nearly New located next to St Mary's in Lake Ronkonkoma. Such deals, different color tickets mean different savings. Another thing, everybody there is volunteering their time. All money goes to support the church. It will be become a favorite place.

You missed at least 4 shops

There are 2 Unique thrift shops,one on Old Country Rd in Westbury (where Nat'l Wholesale Liquidators used to be), and the other in the basement of the TriCounty Flea Market on Hempstead Turnpike in Farmingdale. There is also a new small thrift shop on south side of Jericho Turnpike in Floral Park and a large shop on the north side of Hempstead Turnpike in West Hempstead. Enjoy!

Closing Of Northern Thrift

I was so disappointed when I learned that Northern Thrift was closing, I was a regular shopper there finding so many great things from beautiful clothes, to cute shoes, to videos, to great costume jewelry, furniture on and on. I hope they will re-open somewhere again in the Hunt/Hunt Sta area. If they are going to re-open in a new store I will be the first inside the store when the doors open. I heard the made them move out because some grocery store bought the building, welll where is this phantom grocery store? I cannot think of a worse place for a grocery store what with the light being right there and as it was it was not all that easy getting on the exit line of cars, with the high volume of grocery shoppers it seems like it will be an entering and exiting nightmare. It was the ideal spot however for a thrift store which, yes has a steady stream of shoppers, but throughout the day, not like all at once and en masse.
