    Boutique finds without boutique prices. Watch to learn where you can update your wardrobe on 17th street! (Published Friday, Oct. 14, 2011)

    Just west of Union Square, there's lots to see on this bustling street in Chelsea, from a hidden gem of a vintage shop to a surprisingly approachable lingerie store.

    3 East 17th Street
    Journelle is one of the city's most popular lingerie stores for very good reason: The service is friendly, the wares are lovely and affordable and everything's organized in an approachable way — from special occasion to best sellers.

    Shareen Vintage
    13 West 17th Street, 2nd floor
    One of the area's best-kept secrets, Shareen boasts an impressive array of well-priced vintage, especially when it comes to dresses, where the average price hovers around $100.

    Pippin Vintage Jewelry
    112 West 17th Street
    Whether you're on the hunt for flashy costume pieces or subtle retro-inspired touches, Pippin stocks myriad options at surprisingly affordable price points.

    Housing Works Thrift Shop
    143 West 17th Street
    Even better than the discounted housewares and clothing at this well-stocked shop is the store's mission: To provide benefits and services for New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.

    Ariston Florist
    110 West 17th Street
    The city's floral district is scattered over several streets in Chelsea, and this shop offers an abundance of eye-catching arrangements and plants.

    Angel Street Thrift Shop
    118 West 17th Street Street
    Much like Housing Works, the mission of this shop is a charitable one: to provide support for programs for those affected by substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and mental illness.
