If you're like me: then you totally fucking hate Beacon's Closet. Like REALLY, REALLY hate it.
True, I hate almost all the crap they sell. But more than anything, I hate the nasty, preening, tasteless gaggle of "buyer girls" who hang out in the back of the store sitting court, and seem to be allergic to any garment possessing any tiny shred of style, chic-ness OR sophistication. But if you've got a shitload of H&M or Wet Seal crap to sell, they should most definitely be your first stop.
1 of a Find is like the polar opposite of Beacon's Closet. They're like Beacon's closet after a colonic, some green tea, and a Winona Ryder exorcism. They have a rockin, beautifully edited selection of vintage clothes and accessories that will, I promise, make you swoon.
This is E-X-A-C-T-L-Y the reason I love to read posts on Brooklynian, and yet have never chosen to participate.
Please follow along as some poor Zipcar schlep gets all sorts of smacked down because he was late AND didn't fill up his gas tank.
I'll be praying for you bradedward.
After my one poor experience at this lame restaurant, I concluded that they needed to spend far more time on the "delicious," aspects of their cuisine...cause it pretty much blew.
Needless to say, I haven't given it a thought since. So when I heard that they were shutting things down, I wasn't exactly surprised.
But this goodbye note is simply made of pure awesome.
