Aside from shopping malls, there are also those shopping related stuff that you might now know about. For example, if you want to avoid the crowds, you might want to check out Bloomingdale's located in Midtown Manhattan. You can shop at this beautiful and iconic department store, get great customer service, and still be able to do so without having to fight your way through the aisles. Bloomingdale's offer a great selection of luxury brands and designer clothing, including Michael Kors, Steve Madden, and Hugo Boss.

 

Macy's may have locations at just about every major city in the country, but a visit to its flagship store located in Herald Square. Covering a whole block, you can find everything you need here. And then there is the window displays as well, which makes this branch a particular crowd drawer and a tourist attraction in itself. However, if you are averse to the crowds, go to the Macy's in the downtown area of Brooklyn. Macy's offer 10% discount cards for foreigners.

 

The Big Apple is heaven for shopaholics. Custom Coach & Limo has been giving our readers tips on where to shop with a sprinter van rental in New York City. The choices you have are virtually endless as there is a retailer open to do business with you everywhere you look in the city.

 

A sprinter van rental in New York City can accommodate up to 10 people and you can all go to various shops, shopping malls and shopping centers in the city. We have already talked about famous shopping streets and malls. And in the last installment, we have given you the best kept secrets and tips that every shopper should know.

 

Aside from Bloomingdale's store in Midtown Manhattan, Macy's flagship store in Herald Square and its downtown Brooklyn location, there are two more shopping tips that Custom Coach & Limo wants to share with you.

 

Saks Fifth Avenue is another iconic institution as far as retail and shopping is concerned. The flagship store is surely worth the visit, as the shopping experience is enhanced by the outstanding customer service you can only find here. So if you are looking to get treated like royalty, then you know where to go.

 

Century 21 is for those fashionistas who are on a tight budget. The Lower Manhattan store gives you deep discounts on designer labels. In fact, you could probably find the same dress at an expensive boutique sold here for a much lower price. If you have the time and the energy to spare, go to the clearance section and unearth some hip fashion finds.

 

In New York City where everything is very expensive, you will find a respite from the crazy prices when you buy from flea markets. There are several flea markets in the city that you can go to and these are very popular events, so it is also a good time to mingle with the locals. Hell's Kitchen Flea Market gives you a chance to score vintage clothing, original artworks and antiques at very low prices.

 

You can also go to the Brooklyn Flea Market where it is less crowded. The offerings here are no less varied, and the discounts are to die for.

 

Then there are the smaller and lesser known flea markets such as Artists and Fleas, where you can spend your weekend checking out vintage stuff as well as modern treasures. It also allows you to connect to local artists and designers. This flea market has two locations: Chelsea Market and Williamsburg.

 

If you collect antiques, then go to Chelsea Antiques Garage, where you can buy from hundreds of antique dealers. This is a true gem where you can find stuff that are not available anywhere else. Then check out the East 67th Street Market, which dates back to the 70s.

 

Meanwhile, GreenFlea is only open on Sundays and it gives you more opportunities to add to your antique collection. The list of vendors vary from week to week, so you can come here every Sunday and find something new. Meeker Avenue Flea Market, on the other hand, is where you could find great furniture.

 

Other flea markets you shouldn't miss include Park Slope Flea Market at P.S. 321, Williamsburg Flea Market, and West 25th Street Market.

 

And since all of these flea markets happen on weekends, save time by going to two or more of them with a sprinter van rental in New York City!

 

Speaking of markets, you can also check out the farmers markets that abound in the Big Apple. These food markets allow you to get the freshest fruits and vegetables coming from farms and farmers from all over the city and the rest of the state. Check out the Union Square Greenmarket, which is where you could buy local products four days a week. You can also go to Williamsburg's Smorgasburg and buy food from more than 80 food vendors.

 

Then go to Park Slope Farmers' Market and get all the vegetables you want all throughout the year. Or check out Jackson Heights Greenmarket, probably the busiest market in Queens.

 

Seasonal fruits, fresh juice, the best vegetables and yes, even the freshest seafoods are available at St. George Greenmarket in Staten Island. The list of vendors changes week after week here, so be sure to check back after your first visit.

 

Other farmers markets and green markets you could go to include Saint George Greenmarket and the New York City Wholesale Greenmarket.

Now let's talk about Century 21. As one of our recommendations for inexpensive finds, you would undoubtedly have visited it and maybe have scored a designer item such as an Armani, a Prada or a Gucci. If you want more of the same stuff, you can try going to Nordstrom Rack.

 

Think of it as an outlet mall exclusive to Nordstrom products. Ironically, Nordstrom does not have a branch in NYC, but you can still find their products, at cheaper prices here.

 

Or you can check out Fox's either on the Upper East Side or the Upper West Side where you could find top designers brands being sold at up to 70% off the regular prices. That list of designers include Michael Kors and Elle Tahari.

 

Then if you love makeup, then go to Cosmetic Market. Their slogan says it all: The Best for Less. High end cosmetics, discontinued lines and discounts are the name of the game here. There are a lot of items that go for less than a dollar!

 

Aside from these discount stores, you can also check out Manhattan's resale stores, where you can get your dream items for a fraction of its costs. All items sold at resale stores are handpicked by fashionistas hired to become managers at these places.

 

You can get brand new items, as well as slightly used ones, at resale stores. Slightly used in this case would mean that it was used only once, and most probably by an actress on the red carpet or for a photo shoot. Some of the brands you can find at resale shops are Missoni, Prada, Manolo Blahnik, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Theory, Gucci, Hermés, Versace, and Armani.

 

Be sure to go to these resale stores on a sprinter van rental in New York City, Designer Resale, Fisch for the Hip, A Second Chance, and INA.

 

If you are looking for more discount stuff, then try to find sample sales. You can get the best items at the lowest prices at these sales. That is the good news. The bad news is that it is almost impossible to find because it spreads by word of mouth alone and information only comes out a few days in advance. If you are lucky, however, you can score great finds from brands and stores such as Scoop Warehouse, Badgley Mischka, French Bull Housewares, Kiki de Montparnasse, Vivienne Tam, Tory Burch, and Bottega Veneta.
