Cure Thrift Shop is a non-profit thrift destination in Manhattan's East Village that benefits juvenile diabetes research and advocacy.
Cure Thrift Shop's founder, Liz Wolff was diagnosed with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes when she was 11 years old. As a fourth generation garage sale and thrift shop-scouring, dumpster-diving New Yorker, Liz combined her passion for arts and antiques with her personal mission:
to dedicate her life to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.
Cure Thrift Shop opened its doors in 2008 and quickly rose to thrift shop stardom.
With a dream team of artists and designers who share a passion for fashion, antiques, vintage, and the obscure, Cure has quickly become the most magical thrift experience in Manhattan.
Walk through our doors and lose yourself for hours.
Cure has received rave reviews in the press and has been featured on HGTV, E! Network, Refinery 29, CBS News, Fox 5 News, and NY1 News. Cure was recently named by Time Out New York as one of the "Top 50 NYC Stores of All Time."
Cure has also served as the backdrop for several commercials and films.
After 13 years in 111 East 12th Street, Cure relocated to a bright, open, and modern new home at 91 Third Avenue.
This is thrift store heaven. Welcome to your new obsession.
