I’m still sticking w/ Simchas Chynka– E. 17th, off of Ave. JFebruary 6, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #969979Fast ForwardMember
I couldn’t find it either, Always, but I was the one who started that thread. Here is what I found: Simchas Chynka 718-377-3874 (call for hours, they change), Kanarek Tuesday evening only, no appt. 718-338-1096, Mrs Berkowitz (BP) 718-854-2066, Mrs. Deutsch (Willie) 384-7535. Keep in mind that if you get a dress from a Gemach, they only let you do any alterations by hand and it has to be returned in the exact way you rented it. So major alterations are out. If you cannot find anything at the Gemachs, try renting at Augenbraun on Coney Island Avenue. I believe the prices start at $300 (plus alterations and tax.)

Simchas Chynka I think is generally $75, (they’ll usually make deductions if you havta alter,)& you havta drop it off afterwards to their dry cleaners..February 6, 2011 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #969981chayav inish livisumayParticipant

Always, I was just by Chynka and yes it is $75 and you have to drop it off at their cleaners (another $25 to $35), but we were told that you can only do alterations by hand and that has to be taken out before returning. So if you need to hem something that has beading, that cannot be done by hand or if something is too large and has to be taken in, I would not want to chance it with hand sewn stitches.

we took our dresses to a dressmaker for alterations…
btw– I was shocked when we tried another ‘gemach’ & it was $200-250… with a very small selection yet!August 9, 2013 8:03 am at 8:03 am #969984
