Are you broke, but yearning to spruce up your summer wardrobe? Lady, it’s your lucky day. Dusty Rose Vintage is Greenpoint’s largest vintage clothing warehouse, and will host their first annual “This For That” clothing swap on Thursday May 30th.
Here’s how it works:
…just rock up with a bag of spring/summer garments and accessories you’re done wearing but want to find another loving home.
$3 gets you in the door, then swap to your heart’s content. With a packed crowd of other Greenpoint fashion addicts, you’re bound to make awesome trades.
Plus it’s a perfect opportunity to spring-clean your closet, and go shopping without a shred of guilt. Can’t put a bag together? Just pay a little more: $5 at the door.
Dusty Rose will lay out free punch for to quench your thrifty thirst, and if you can’t make the swap but still want to donate, you’re welcome to drop clothes off at the warehouse in the week before the event.
If you’re a true vintage fan, this is a great chance to get a sneak-peak at Dusty Rose Vintage BEFORE they officially throw their doors open to the public in June. Trust us: this place is going to be a goldmine of affordable vintage, unlike anything in New York City. It has to be seen to be believed.

There will be a line down the block and it will be a total shit show. You might have a panic attack. That being said there are some crazy fun things to find at this sample sale. Last year I got my lawn ornament flamingo that lives in my kitchen and for reasons unknown to me I always refer to it as a swan. Now I have a lawn ornament flamingo tattoo! They are friends.
I will see you there, literally because the warehouse is right across from my apartment. Have fun and let me know what you get!
