I feel compelled to share a little known secret among young people. Second hand stores are amazing! I just got back from a second hand store in Princeton, NJ and bought some amazing things for less than 60 bucks total. I bought:
*A Gap sweater
*2 Brooks Brother Shirts
*Chaps Ralph Lauren Shirt
*2 Van Heusem Shirts
*One Nautica Shirt
All Shirts are button down, dry cleaned and very nice. All are in excellent condition. One Brooks Brother Shirts usually go for 70 bucks so I feel that I got a really good deal. Anybody have any thoughts about second hand stores?

I love them, but they are hard to find.

Is it Plato's? I love Plato's. I cheat whenever I go there. I buy name brand jeans at a cheapy thift store and sell them at Plato's!
It's the ghetto way but someone has to do it..
Gucci... wonder if I can find Pucci...

hehe, poisonivy, that's a good idea!
I love Buffalo Exchange. It's a great second hand store. But you can find some great stuff at thrift stores too. I got an adorable pleated skirt this weekend for $2 at Salvation Army. yay!

Some of the best deals are at second hand stores in upscale towns/neighborhoods. They have great stuff and tend to be a bit less picked over than the Sally Army stores.

Nemon you are absolutely correct. I live near Trenton, and I used to go to the trift shops there. However, the quality is terrible and clothes are horrible. I go to a consignment shop in Princeton and I find deals of a lifetime. I just bought a tuxedo at a sale they hand for under 5 dollars. I couldn't find a deal like that anywhere in Trenton!

Urbansocrates: Tell me if you ever notice the ETS headquarters off of Rosedale Road whenever you are driving around Princeton.

I would like to introduce myself -- I am Louis DiBello, and I work with statistical analysis. What position at ETS do you occupy during the summer?

My name is Jerell Blakeley. First I would like to began with that I am a high school student. ETS is doing an documentary about the history of Trenton Central High School and is doing some outreach. I do research and interview people. I am not sure if you know her or not, but I work with Ann Gale. Are you familiar with the Trenton project?

I can't say that I am familiar with the Trenton Project or Ann Gale. However, are Mrs. Dawson (the principal of Trenton Central High School) and Dr. Lytle (superintendent) working on this project as well?
|By Urbansocrates (Urbansocrates) on Sunday, August 22, 2004 - 08:55 pm: Edit|
Yes all of them are. In fact, they are going to be at ETS all this week. I will not be their next week b/c I will be on vacation. If you will be their the week after next, we should meet up and I can tell you more about the Trenton Project.
