Thrifty Threads





So I thought I'd do a post on some of my favorite thrift/vintage stores in LA. If you didn't know: I am a huge thrifter, as you can usually find me searching through racks on racks at one of these stores. I live walking distance from Wasteland, Crossroads, and Buffalo Exchange, which is great, but also dangerous - very dangerous (for a shopaholic like me that is). My love affair with Wasteland started the first time I came to LA, which was about 2 years ago. Whenever I'd come visit after that, it'd be the first place I went to and the last place I went to before going back home to New York. Now that I live here, I definitely don't go as often, or else I'd actually be broke. I'm always popping in every now and then though, whether it's browsing, shopping, or selling my clothes to them. Iguana is definitely more of a vintage store, than a thrift store. I love wandering around in there for hours and getting lost in all of the different decades - whether it's the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, etc - I love it all. So if you wished you lived in the Roaring 20's... go on in there and purchase some retro threads - promise you'll find some treasures in there. What are some of your favorite thrift/vintage stores?
