Awesome enormous vintage collection – This place is great, I went today for the first time on a sunday when they have the one dollar sale outside. There are piles of clothing everywhere and everything's a dollar. I didnt find too much, a cute pink 80's sweatshirt and a silk scarf. Most of the clothing wasnt my size or it was stained or ripped, but mind you I came very late, around 3, i hear its best to go write in the morning cause thats when all the good stuff is there. I did find alot of womens polyester button up shirts though, which are great, but i already have so many that i refrained from getting more!
Inside is awesome, they have two floors and they have an amazing selection of dresses. They have racks and racks just dedicated to 60's. They have great tops too, I bought an 80's black beaded sleeveless top with sequin and beaded flowers on it of orange, purple and green. Their prices are great too!! The top was 18 dollars, at most places youd pay 30 for something like that. They had tons of tops for only 6 or 8 dollars too. I also got some matte leather calf-height boots that are super comfy, only 34 dollars. They had tons of coats and jackets for under 40 dollars, which is very surprising, its hard to find good vintage coats that arent super expensive. They also had very high quality more expensive coats too, leather and fur, etc.
I would defenetly reccommend this to anyone who loves vintage clothing at good prices. It seemed like the eras they focus on are more 60's, 70's and 80's. I didnt see tooo much stuff from decades before that, but im sure its there. I went on an empty stomach, wanted to look around more but it can be tiring and overwhemling in there, its a huge place and you want to give yourself alot of time to look around at everything.
I would recommend go on a sunday morning, go through the dollar stuff first, see if you find some finds, and then once you've had enough of that, go into the store.
The things I bought:
80's pink sweatshirt (dollar)
Yellow, green and brown silk scarf (dollar)
Black matte leather calf high boots, 1 1/2 inch heel
70's or 80's i think ($34)
Black, orange, purple and green beaded/sequined 80's sleeveless top ($18) They have TONS of these by the way!!
80's earrings ($5)
Go and have fun!
Right on La brea at willoughby.
Dolla, Make Me Wanna Holla – Dollar Sale Sundays!! Yes. You read that right. On Sundays, their parking lot is piled hip high with clothing for only $1. You'll have to get down on your knees to sift through everything, but it will all be worth it when you find that one magical piece... FOR A DOLLAR!
Best Thrift Store Finds in town!! – I am now officially in love with this place! I found the cutest dress for only $25! My friend suggested going here for their big Sunday sale in their parking lot. Good luck finding street parking, we had to park in the residential neighborhood and walk, but when we got there...SO MANY PEOPLE! It was so much fun. I felt like it was a challenge trying to find something in all the piles of clothes. We went inside and found some amazing stuff that were still really reasonably priced! I am totally coming here again!
Great place to buy cheap vintage – Good Selection of vintage and the Sunday $1 sale is pretty good value for the buck. They have good inventory and constant new stuff.........
best ! – I love this place . Oh man it is so great . Every sunday , everything in the parking lot $1 ! but you will have to dig through piles and piles of clothes. And you should definitely go very early to pick the best things . And be aware . A lot of people will just randomly choose things , put it in a container , and try them on , so be quick in looking through things . All i could find was a shirt when i went , but i got other things from inside . Outside is chaos , but inside is this huge treasure trove of things. Oh wow . My grama and mum were having some crazy flashbacks. Hahah ! A lot of great sun glasses , necklaces , button , pathces , vests , hats , dresses , shoes , etc. ! I highly recommend this store . And make sure you devote a lot of time to looking though things . You can NOT just spend a hour in here !
Love. Love-love. L-O-V-E. Love it! – I am a hardcore "thrifter" and this is one is on my top-5 list when vintage hunting throughout the country on vacations. When walking in to the store, it is absolutely HUGE! You feel like you are walking into a prop department at a nearby Hollywood Studio, and the prices are pretty decent, in lieu of the endless selection.
They've got everything for anybody. You want a Victorian Dress? You got it! You want acid washed jeans from the 80's? Kind of gross, but yeah, they got 'em! They have military attire, T-shirts up the yin-yang, and they have more shoes and accessories than you can shake a stick at.
I should also comment on the great customer service at this location. I found an old Rodeo belt that fit me, but a lot of them were way too big, so I asked if there was any place I could go to poke extra holes in the belt. The clerk behind the counter told me he had a hole puncher for belts and would do it for free. He was a really nice guy and I kept running into him all over town for the rest of my trip, which was kinda neat.
My only complaint is that the dollar sale wasn't that terrific, but then again, I should have showed up earlier since everything was already picked through. My friend Bryan found a terrific sweater-jacket for himself, though, as I recall, but this WAS last summer.
Bottom line: I LOVE THIS STORE!
best dresses, great coats, dollar mayhem – Simply ruling.
This is a wonderland.
I myself don't get involved in the rampage of dollar day in the parking lot on sunday, but some people understandably live for it.
But this is a great place to find a dress before going out on saturday night.
The dressing rooms are fun because they are a little scary... they kind of roll, and you almost think people can see in, but they can't.
oh yeah, i have a thing with buying used shoes ( i don't), but if you don't mind the Used Shoes thing, they have a great shoe section, oranized by era.
Lots of great coats.
Women's shirts, kind of limited for my taste... But best secondhand dress selection in hollywood, hands-down.
Last but not least, any secondhand store with shelves and shelves of knitted afghans and old blankets and a bunch of aprons gets at least 3 stars.
PS: wednesday/thursday PM shopping gives you a better selection.
Great place for good old school thrift store gear - inexpensive – I love this place because it is old school and you can get clothes for CHEAP. Lately alot of thrift stores are expensive since it is the new thing but this store keeps it cheap and nice. Great atmosphere and the $1 sale on the weekend is brilliant.
Vintage Glam on the Cheap – Like well-priced vintage clothing but don't want to pay Melrose Ave. prices? Then head to Jet Rag for a massive selection of items, most priced under $20. There are racks and racks of dresses from the 1950s-'80s, blazers, tons of shoes, dozens of men's Polo shirts, and pretty much anything else a thrift junkie would desire. Jet Rag has creative window displays and an organized, well-lighted interior space conducive to browsing. If you go on a Sunday, there are $1 sales where piles of clothes are dumped on to clothes in the parking lot and customers dig for cheap treasures. The store, however, does lack in terms of vintage accessories especially jewelry, hats, and gloves.
For quality and quantity, you simply can't beat this low-priced resale goldmine. – In Short
This barn-like structure houses the largest collection of conservatively priced vintage in L.A. The owners make an attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff by displaying the more desirable items behind the cash register, but you're just as likely to find something stunning on the racks. From ultra-loud polyester to subtle denim and corduroy and all points in between, Jet Rag's got it all.
