Over the weekend, Greenpoint welcomed bargain-hunters destination Angel Street Thrift. The store, an offshoot of one open for eleven years on 118 West 17th Street in Chelsea, sells gently-used designer samples, vintage and thrift clothing and accessories, with proceeds benefiting individuals and families affected by substance abuse, HIV, AIDS and mental illness. At 10,000-square-feet, the Greenpoint location is enormous in comparison to the Chelsea space. Scattered about the warehouse-like selling floor are about 20 racks of clothing, a few pieces of furniture and shelves of bric-a-brac, books and housewares. One more key difference between the two: while Chelsea is open seven days a week, Greenpoint is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
