Beacons Closet is a huge warehouse-style space facing the Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg. Beacons' stock is solely based on people who bring in their used clothing to sell. Their buyers are famously choosy, and only select the cream of New York's fashion crop resell in the store. There are many stores that use this concept, but Beacons has mastered the art of seeking out quality, which is why the store is the best place in NYC to get real vintage at a bargain prices. Beacon's also offers the most items per square-foot, while still allowing for a low-effort shopping experience. Bonus points: Their unusually attractive staff makes sifting through racks even more painless.
