Second-hand shopping is often likened to a hunt, and Secondi takes the search for treasure to another level. Designer gems at half the retail price dot the store. For Dolce & Gabbana slingbacks: Walk up the stairs, take two steps to the right, and turn around. For size 5 Miu Miu booties: Go past the counter, look left. Gucci wedges and Nine West snakeskin pumps: Head straight to the windows. But dig through the ultimate treasure chest in the back right corner: You never know what trinkets await in sizes 7 to 9, including Kate Spade leopard print mohair pumps, Tory Burch pattern wedges, and L.A.M.B. black and nude strappy heels.
