I need to buy clothes that can be used for costumes and objects for props.

I heard there is a bunch on 23rd St - are they any good? I've been looking at some websites but they don't look like they would be that cheap.

Any other suggestions?

Listen, I don't take my clothes off for anyone, even if it is "artistic". - JANICE

There's a Salvation Army store on 46th between 10th & 11th, I believe. There is one on 8th around 23rd or so too, that's pretty good. Stay away from that "Cheap Jacks" store because the cheapest thing in there would pay my rent for a month.

Nice suggestions you two! I assumed those other stores were not really that cheap but I'll check these options out.

What does CHEAP mean to you? Price range? BTW, be careful about potential bed bugs from used merch - just sayin'.......(inspet carefully)

Cheap, well - $15- $25 for a dress and not $75. Something like that, heavily discounted. Some $5-$10 props.
