Sammi Sammi - A pure blast
darryl_u, Jun 2023
I booked this trip with my granddaughter (who sadly couldn't travel to the US in the end), so I dragged my husband along for the ride. I contacted Sammi in advance of what I was after and she tailored the trip to our requirements. There was just the 3 of us and Sammi took us to a flea market, couple of thrift shops and a pizza place. I found a second hand handbag I was after and the funny part, we got a plain pizza box (husband needed to pack vinyl he had purchased). Sammi was a joy, full of life and helped make the afternoon go very quickly and gave us great advice and support on our final day in New York. Would strongly recommend this trip. Thanks Steph and Darryl xxx

The experience was well organized. Participants were asked what they were looking for. We then visited three stores and had a short break in between. Loved it. Would recommend it wholeheartedly.
Sammy is amazing!

This was a highlight of our trip. Isra took us to great consignment shops and her eye for what we like was spot on. I ended up buying most of what she suggested! Isra was fun and funny and it was great to spend the day with her. I also love that I have a few new pieces of clothing that will have them memories of NYC thrifting attached to them.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Sarah, we absolutely loved hosting you! So happy you adored Isra!!
Deb_R, Oct 2022
Oh my gosh! This was absolutely the most fun we had while visiting NY. Isra, our guide was delightful. She got to know us, our like and dislikes, fashion icons and introduced us to the Thrifting Gods (we are believers!). She was one of the most authentic people you will ever want to meet. She challenged us as well, to look at items we might have passed by. Sammy, the owner was just as sweet and engaging. You will love this tour from beginning to end and leave with some of the most memorable items for your wardrobe! 100% recommended!
Brilliant tour
