I recently received a comment requesting vintage clothing store recommendations and I am embarrassed to say I don’t have any.  In the past, the funny smell and weird clothes distract me in my search for one of a kind items. Now that vintage has become trendy, many vintage stores have jacked out their prices.  All that being said, I would really like to explore some vintage stores for an upcoming post.  Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Yes, the vintage clothing is wanted for everybody in today.

  2. Resurrection Vintage in Melrose Heights, Iguana Vintage in Sherman Oaks and Jet Rag on La Brea. Hope this helps, but I always find the Melrose/Fairfax flea market to be the best bet in the area!

    Just stumbled upon this site and wanted to gush about how fabulous everything is.

    Unfortunately, I do not have any recommendations for vintage shops for you as I’m clear across the country, but I wish you good luck.

    This is a fabulous and fun way to approaching living on a budget, and paging back through the archives, it’s clear that you’ve done pretty well on a budget. The apartment looks gorgeous.

    PS. You mentioned you were in a sorority, which one?! I’m a DG.

    Actually, I did do some research. LOL, google maps is very useful (:

    HMM, I’ve never actually gone to a flea market probably because I never get the chance to. I hear there are some great finds in flea markets, however, it’s hard to find great pieces there.

    I am glad that I am not the only one that is not comfortable in vintage stores. The always smell musty and I can’t get past the thought that I don’t know the pasts of the worn items. I am weird, I know.
