About Buy the Bag
Known as “thrifters heaven” by savvy shoppers, bloggers and media, including The New York Times and the Today Show, Housing Works Buy the Bag is not your typical retail shopping experience. When you visit our Buy the Bag shop in Sunset Park Brooklyn, you get a bag to fill with your choice of fashion and accessories – some in need of just a little care – for just $25. As always, entry is FREE!
