Now being LA I am in a mecca of fashion. In fact, I am staying in the fashion distract. I can't do too much shopping because I am broke guttersnipe, but that doesn't mean I can look around and grab a few goodies here and there.
One of my favorite thrift stores is called Hutch located on Sunset. It's a very goofy little spot owned by an old woman who looks like she's at least 100 years old. And she is quite the character! (My favorite part of the shop was her eyed dog.) Since she is such a well season vet, she has a great eye for one-of-a-kind pieces from across the spectrum of decades. Ranging from 1940s to the 80s.
Since this is a specialty thrift stores prices are a little higher than say a goodwill or salvation army. But still worth it because everything is in such great condition. Items vary from clothes, coffee tables, book cases, art work and silly little knick-knacks. Even a select handmade pieces.
I picked up a shirt ($10) and a dress ($15) Not to mention next to Hutch is a ice cream spot called Scoops. Go there!
