Long Island thrift shoppers' best looks

The best thrifters know how to take one great find and build on it. With that in mind, we challenged three avid thrifters to create a head-to-toe ensemble for $50 or less. Sarafina Bush, a costume designer and student at Adelphi University, shopped at Savers in West Hempstead, Dominique Maciejka, a personal shopper and stylist, shopped at Goodwill Industries in Centereach and Salvation Army in Hempstead, and Lisa Negron, who owns an online thrift store, shopped at AMVETS Thrift Store in Copiague. Here are the looks they came up with.
