Top 10 Vintage and Second-Hand 

Boutiques in L.A.

Categories: Best of L.A.FashionShop

Whether you're looking for 1960s Peggy Moffitt mod couture 
or 1980s stonewashed denim castaways from the Valley, Los Angeles 
has a vintage and second-hand shopping scene that's bursting at the
old-school seams. In a city known for making old things look fresher 
than they really are, it's no surprise that L.A. yields some of the best 
vintage in the country. So whether you're cruising the red carpet, 
taking road trips to the desert or ordering your third cup 
of Intelligentsia, retro always rocks.
Here are our picks for the 10 best vintage and second-hand boutiques in L.A

Stepping into Tavin is like falling into Joni Mitchell's walk-in closet circa Ladies of the Canyon. Gauzy summer dresses, lace shawls, floral headscarves, '70s Afghani tunics and faded objets d'art make this little treasure trove a must for wistful-eyed romantics and wild poets. Even the price tags are handwritten, with little thoughts penned by store owner Erin Tavin (you'll recognize her by her abundant blond curls). With some dresses above the $300 mark, this is a store for boho jetsetters rather than starving thrifters, a place to pick out looks for that next trip to Marrakech, that yoga retreat in Ibiza or that romantic weekender in Tulum. 1543 Echo Park Ave., Echo Park
