A friend of mine wants vintage adult magazines for Christmas. Where could I find some, preferably close to the East Village?

Any antique mall or market will have a vendor who specializes in old paper and mags, with adult mags among them. Your chances of finding such a vendor at the Chelsea Flea or Hell's Kitchen Flea are pretty good (although not guaranteed).

Call The Thing in Greenpoint and see if they'll have them.

According to Metafilter, just take a walk in the woods. I kid, I kid.

I saw a vendor at the Brooklyn Flea with some of those last year. I'm sorry I can't give you a name, though.

Call the local library, or the nearest museum with a librarian on staff. They can tell you where they send them when they get donated. It happens

I was literally just in a thrift shop on Bedford Avenue near the L stop on 7th that had a bunch of old Playboys, but I’m afraid I don’t remember the name. If I remember rightly, it’s on Bedford between the subway station and McCarren Park, so only a few block stretch. And not really a thrift shop — the kind of place with a small volume of vintage clothes and old stuff displayed attractively rather than a lot of stuff jumbled onto racks. I’m not sure if that’s enough to go looking for the place, but it definitely had multiple Playboys on display.
