6 best vintage thrift stores in LA
Los Angeles, the city of fashion, beaches, and nightlife. Take a flip-flop stroll down Sunset Boulevard and see for yourself why this city is labeled the city of dreams. Los Angeles is also a sustainability minded city with many individuals committing to living a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Being the number one solar city in America, LA is no stranger to caring about the planet...hence all of the amazing thrift stores!

I’ve compiled a list below for locals and tourists, who will want to make a point of visiting at least one of these stores.

1. L.A. Road Thrift Store

Opened in 2015, this thrift store is a nonprofit organization that invests in their community. They focus on giving to families in need as well as sustainability.

“Our team makes it possible for us to forge meaningful relationships that enable us to grow, give…and build a positive and generous community, one day at a time.”

If you are interested in donating, they accept items ranging from instruments, to clothing, to artwork, and more.

2. Lemon Frog Shop

Located on North Alvarado and Sunset, Lemon Frog is a groovy shop with classic women’s fashion. In this adorable shop you will find tons of items all under $10. From maxi dresses to Victorian-era lacy dresses, you will find many vintage pieces to amplify your wardrobe.

They also have a Pinterest board where you can see their adorable customers show off their fancy finds. If you love lace, pearls, polka dots and more, head down ASAP and see what treasures can be added to your closet today.

3. The Way We Wore

Feeling a little luxe? The Way We Wore is an upscale vintage store that offers everything you need for a major wardrobe update. This shop sells clothing and accessories – plus they have a shop by decade feature. If you just aren’t sure where to begin for your fashion update, they offer design services by appointment. They're also on YouTube, where they offer videos on fashion education and historical information on some of the pieces you might find in their shop.

4. Jet Rag Vintage

Though this rad shop is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, Jet Rag Vintage is gearing up to open soon. This shop has lots of inspiring pieces from the ‘50s, ‘60s, and beyond. Check them out on Instagram to see pieces like this beautiful polka dot dress, or this vibrant jumpsuit.

They also have $1 yard sales where you can shop outdoors during these times. If you stop by be sure to tag them to be featured on their social media. Stay tuned for their reopening!

5. The Left Bank

This consignment shop does it all (buy-sell-trade). Founded by a group of outstanding women, The Left Bank is all about being eco-friendly and supporting the community. This shop features fun household items like candles and puzzles, and also sells extremely trendy clothes for women. Their shop is popular and many items sell out of stock quickly so don’t hesitate when you see something you love,  like this For Love and Lemons Lace Dress or these Kimora Cherry leather sandals.

6. Wasteland

Opened in 1985, Wasteland is a thrift store inspired by nostalgia, and described as a perfectly curated, style haven that offers a fashion collection of authenticity and self-expression. They have two locations in LA: West Hollywood and Studio City – two of the most fashion-forward streets in Southern California.

Aside from its physical locations, you can also shop online. They receive new arrivals all the time and are currently showcasing some amazing items. Get ready for the colder weather with this Siberia Hills Tie-Dye Thermal and pair it with these I.AM.GIA Tex pants.

Head to the site or head to the shop, you’ll definitely find something new (to you) to love.
