My wardrobe is made up of some really awesome hippie-ish skirts and stuff but I got them all in Israel/online and now want an alternative. Does anyone know of cool places in NYC/NJ where I can get some hot hippie-ish clothing? Tie-dye, crocheted stuff, long flowy skirts, hemp hats and bags....

It would be really helpful....



Thanks!!

RMB's favorite site that she's posted on here is www.gypsyrose.com. Also, try garage sales, thift and consignment shops, and step-down-from-regular-retail stores like Gabriel Brothers. Gabes doesn't often have authentic hippie-style clothing, but if you're just looking for a white T-shirt to wear under another shirt or something like that, it can still be worthwhile.



Just do an online search for hippie style clothing. There have to be dozens, if not hundreds, of clothing sites that either sell ready-made items or can give you ideas for what to make yourself.



If you ever happen to be in the Edinburgh, Scotland, area, check out Armstrong's Clothing. There are three or four of them in that area. I wanted to buy the ENTIRE store when I was there! I stuck to just getting this one long, crazy-quilt-look skirt.

While I appreciate your comments I am NOT looking for websites...I have a pretty unique body type and need to try clothing on before I buy it....Does anyone know of stores in the NYC area to go to?

Gee...in your area. Well, as far as thrift stores go, Goodwill seems to be everywhere, and so might be the American Veterans (AmVets) thrift stores. The ones in my area are called the Village Discount Outlets. Local consignment shops vary incredibly, so I can't give you any leads there other than tell you I'm sure they're there.



Look in the phone book under clothing and see what you find. Different phone books categorize things different ways, so you may need to try several terms/words before you hit on exactly what you're looking for. If you don't want to make clothes yourself and are having a hard time with ready-made options, you might try looking up a sewer. (As in a person who sews, not the place where the filthy water goes.) NYC is a big place--they may even have a sewing school whose students might find making clothes for you to be a fun challenge. Schools will often discount the prices significantly since you are accepting the possibility of imperfections.



Or you could always stop the hippies you see out in public and beg them to tell you where they got their clothes.



Get involved with environmental causes, meet some hippies, and follow them around as they obtain clothing.
