Givits Thrift and Recycle: Again in 2015
by Joanna Wilson
Givits in Hudson is still one of my favorite places. Ever since my first visits in 2013--I wrote about those here--I like to drop by Givits as often as possible. There's always something new and the owners are the nicest people!

Givits is better than a thrift store--it's a store for vintage items to find a second life. One of the reasons I stopped by this past weekend was that I was looking for vintage men's neckties. Sure enough, I found four that were better than I even imagined I'd find. I was looking for neckties to wear to my upcoming book signing events and I found one with the local department store label 'Polsky's' and another with the label 'O'Neil's.' My book is about the store histories of both Polsky's and O'Neil's--so these are perfect for me. I couldn't be more pleased.

Givits is the perfect place for creative people because they stock pieces and parts of items that other thrift stores won't bother with. Want to replace a broken leg on a favorite table or chair? You can find a reasonably priced vintage leg at Givits. Looking for supplies for an art project? There's inspiration around every corner.
