Ritz Furs (Ritz Thrift Shop) is one of the most famous places for women to shop in the world. Devoted exclusively to Furs, it was founded by Aaron Kaye, who made his first fortune at the age of 16 selling eggs in Alaska during the Gold Rush of the 1890's. Kaye opened The Ritz (Ritz Thrift Shop) in New York City during the Great Depression.

Selection: Everything fur, including used sable, used and new minks, beaver, fox, lynx, and fur trimmed garments. Inventory changes daily. Ritz Furs (Ritz Thrift Shop) also carries an extensive collection of new sheared mink coats and jackets. Accessories at The Ritz include a large selection of hats, fur collars, scarves, and stoles.
