It's Summer time and everyone is out and about enjoying the weather and each other's company.  But after a while, does going out to the same clubs/bars, drinking the same drinks, and doing the same weekend routines ever get....well....boring?  Luckily, there are TONS of things to do for the rest of month to shake up your weekend and weekday fun-time.  Make sure to check out the giveaway contest at the end of this blog entry!!

1 - Buy, Sell, Trade

For all you thrift store junkies and consignment connoisseurs, there is a brand new buy, sell, trade to pillage and enjoy!! Clothes Minded (right on Liberty Ave. in Bloomfield) was created by Josh Fedorski, who is also a screenplay writer and artist.  The shop carries men's and women's clothing, shoes, and accessories and features names like Michael Kors, 7 For All Mankind, BCBG, and Bisou Bisou (to name a few).  It's part vintage and the other part NYC street style!  Check out their website here.
