Dobbin Street Vintage Co-op is a vintage store in Greenpoint that features some of the most aesthetically pleasing furniture in the city.

They have two locations—one in Williamsburg and one in Greenpoint.  Dobbin sells vintage furniture, clothing, and even plants. The store is overall great to look at, giving off strong 80s and Los Angeles vibes.

All the items here are top-notch and carefully selected. The ceramic and plant collections are particularly impressive. The prices here are surprisingly good, so give this place a visit and prepare yourself for some great deals!

Next, we have what is considered to not only be one of the best Greenpoint thrift stores, but one of the best Brooklyn thrift stores period—Beacon’s Closet.

This shop has 4 different locations. There are 3 in Brooklyn (Greenpoint, Bushwick, Park Slope), one in Greenwich Village. This thrift store, more than any other, sets a great atmosphere for you to search through their large selection of men’s and women’s fashion.  

The selection here is wide and the store offers some of the best collection of coats and jackets of any of the Greenpoint vintage stores. They also do a pretty good job at keeping a mix of both lower and higher-end clothing.

While this store is pretty affordable, some of the higher-end clothing can be a bit pricey. But you do get what you pay for and much of the proceeds go to worthy non-profit organizations (Coalition for the homeless, Center for Racial Justice in Education, American Society for Suicide Prevention, etc.)

Beacon also allows you to bring in any unwanted clothing and sell it to the store as long as it’s something they are looking for. Give the store a call to find out what styles their currently buying!

If I could describe Mirth Vintage in one word—that word would be slick. Out of all the Greenpoint vintage stores, this one definitely feels the dressiest and most refined.

They specialize in vintage women’s clothing (20th century through the 2000s). This store is small and compact and is one of the few vintage shops that prioritize quality over quantity.

Mirth puts great effort into finding clothing that’s not only trendy but timeless as well. This shop is a must for lovers of black and cream-colored dress wear. New arrivals are posted periodically to both their main site and Instagram page, so be sure to check there for updates.

Like Mirth, Dusty Rose Vintage feels compact and focused. And similar to Thrift Lab, Dusty focuses on the unique and eye-catching.

Dusty is also pretty great as far as variety goes; but what really stands out about their selection of clothing, furniture and accessories, is that everything feels so specific and meant for someone.

While the furniture takes center stage, the clothing they do offer is both high in quality and condition. Also, their prices are surprisingly affordable given that it’s a New York City shop.  If you’re in the neighborhood, Dusty Rose Vintage is highly recommended.

Now to switch things up a bit, we have a Greenpoint vintage shop that operates mostly as a children’s clothing store—Parachute Brooklyn.

Parachute has an excellent selection of children’s vintage and modern fashion. And something not commonly seen in Greenpoint thrift stores—Parachute has a selection of good brands at extremely affordable prices.

Also, not only do they sell children’s clothes—but they have a good collection of toys too. So, kids have something to keep themselves occupied while parents can go shop.

Need some not-so-new, but awesome furniture? Copper+Plaid is a must-visit. Copper sells a mix of mid-century and modern-day furnishing.

Their gorgeous-looking space provides the perfect setting to check out their well-crafted furniture. Copper+Plaid has some of the most polished and clean furniture in the city. And their furniture isn’t the only impressive thing about them.

They also offer many different kinds of decor such as cacti, pottery, and paintings. Some of the items here will have you feeling as if you’re living well above your means.

Even though the quality for the furniture is high, money shouldn’t be too much of a worry. As with many Greenpoint thrift stores on this list, Copper has pretty reasonable prices. They also offer delivery services within the city.

And like Lara Koleji this shop is open on Saturdays and Sundays only. You can schedule an appointment for other days of the week by messaging Copper+Plaid on their Instagram page.
