Brownstoner observes that a new second hand store appears to be on the verge of opening, called Boutique Thrift, at 469 Vanderbilt ave, on the corner of Gates ave.
Response to the imminent opening is mixed, however, with multiple residents expressing concerns about bed-bugs being easily transmitted.
Other residents are quick to describe the cleaning processes of the typical second hand store as specifically addressing the issue of bed bugs, but of course, it is a fear not easily quelled.
But regardless of concerns over pesky insects, new business ventures are a welcome sight in this economy, especially ones that aim to provide value.
An opening date has yet to be posted, and so we wait patiently to see what Boutique Thrift turns out to be.
