Treasures can be found when vintage shopping, making it so much more immersive and feeling like a magical experience. Finding the perfect piece is so thrilling - there’s truly nothing quite like shopping at vintage stores. I have curated a list of four vintage shops that must be visited when in LA. Happy shopping!
1. American Rebel
American Rebel, located on Melrose, has a bit of everything. It tends to be a little pricier, but the pieces are of good quality and are otherwise hard to find. Many shoppers of American Rebel love it for the experience, as the store is quite spacious, so there’s lots to look at and explore.
Wasteland is the perfect first stop for vintage shoppers. They carry a wide variety of pieces, with multiple styles to pick through and fall in love with. There are three Wasteland locations: one on Melrose, on in Santa Monica’s Promenade, and one in Studio City. Discover a unique mix of contemporary, designer, and consignment options at Wasteland. There are definitely gems to be found here!
3. What Goes Around Comes Around (Beverly Hills)
Located in both NYC and LA, What Goes Around Comes Around is definitely a higher-end vintage shop, favored by celebs such as Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Rachel Zoe. Their Beverly Hills location has a definite cool-girl aesthetic, filled with the most coveted vintage pieces.
4. Raggedy Threads (DTLA)
A more rustic, laidback feel is how I’d best describe the aesthetic of Raggedy Threads in DTLA. In here, you’ll find an array of vintage jeans, jackets, button-downs, and graphic tees. Raggedy Threads also has an NYC location, so if you’re an East Coaster, do not fret! You have your own Raggedy Threads near you as well. Easily find special pieces that you’ll deeply treasure here!
I have always loved wandering around thrift stores and various vintage shops, discovering a history in clothing I’d never seen before. Do you have a favorite vintage store that you love going to? What’s the best piece you’ve found from vintage shopping? Let me know in the comments of this post!
