Snag some "new" threads this Thrift Store Day.
On Wednesday over 60 vintage stores and nonprofit thrift stores in New York City will be open for business for the third annual celebration of everything secondhand.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW THE MAP:
The city's Department of Sanitation and its donateNYC program has partnered with the stores to help educate New Yorkers on waste and encourage them to fund organizations like Goodwill, Salvation Army and Housing Works that support over 600,000 people in need.
National Thrift Store day is also part of the New York City's 0X30 initiative, an effort to stop the city from sending garbage to landfills by the year 2030.
Anyone who decides to go thrifting on Aug. 17 can post a photo of their favorite finds on Instagram and tag @donateNYC along with #ThriftStoreDay for a chance to win prizes from organizations that have partnered with donateNYC.
There will also be a special thrifting event at Housing Works' Chelsea location at 143 W. 17th St., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you go, you will receive complimentary refreshments and special sales. Register for the event here.
