Shopping is a bit of a misnomer - the shops here are too hip and over priced. The real treasure here is that the rich people here leave A LOT of free stuff right outside their homes. It is a cultural norm in Parkslope to leave things right outside your gate when you don't want them. This includes toys, shoes, jackets, cameras, books, etc. Much of this free stuff is unused or barely used. We've found brands like LL Bean, Sorrel and Blundstone, among others. My girlfriend supplements her income by picking up this free stuff and reselling it online.
