There’s nothing like getting a deal, and there are so many treasures to be found at thrift stores on Long Island, here are a few places to start.

Long Islanders Voted Community Thrift Shop in Huntington Best Thrift Store on Long Island!

Community Thrift Shop Inc.
274 New York Ave.

The bulk of the stock at Huntington’s Community Thrift Shop is clothing, but you can unearth plenty of other great goods here, too. Like any thrift store, Community Thrift Shop depends on donors—who are generous enough to give their secondhand goods—as well as customers, because it is the customers who assign these items their true value. For instance, one person’s ratty old pair of sneakers is another person’s vintage Air Jordan 1s. The shop benefits local charities: Family Service League, Visiting Nurse Services, Red Cross, Planned Parenthood, Huntington Hospital, Pederson-Krag Center and Cancer Care.

2nd Place – American Cancer Society Thrift Shop, 22 Nugent St., Southampton. 631-283-6789.

This thrift shop has great deals and awesome clothes. This place has designer goods, great shoes, suits and sweaters for some nice prices. Donate or shop, the choice is yours.

3rd Place - Act II Consignment Boutique, 11 Hewitt Sq., East Northport. 631-754-1800.

I would like to nominate th Junior Leagure of Long Island in Roslyn, NY. I have been shopping there for a number of years and find that they have quality goods at reasonable prices. The staff, many of whom are volunteers, are gracious and helpful. The next time you drive down Main Street to enjoy the view of the water and the historical ambience, take a peek in the windows of this posh, but not too pricey, recycle boutique. It’s fun just to window shop; and even better inside, when you visit and find a bargain!

I would like to nominate Finders Keepers in Lake Grove. It is a new store and it is clean and organized and has great people running it. It has a lot of really neat stuff like antiques and vintage stuff too. The prices are so reasonable, I always find a great deal.
