    This place isn't for the faint of heart. Maybe pack some trail mix and water, because you gotta go big or go home when it comes to this huge warehouse in Lincoln Heights.

    This shop in Echo Park may be on the smaller side but it's well-stocked and well-curated. The owner clearly has an eye for finding standout pieces from the 1950s through the 1980s that have stood the test of time.

    This place is definitely a splurge, but they have clothes that date all the way back to the beginning of the 20th century—including some great Jazz Age Era dresses. If you do not have a trust fund, look for their sales.

    Wasteland offers a mixture of new, vintage and resale items. Many are high-end name brands like Armani or D&G, and some are quite unique. It’s a great place to get something for an exclusive event where you want to stand out.

    A great place to get some patterned dresses from the '50s to '70s, and they range at decent prices from $25 to $40. Popkiller also has a great selection of retro jackets and old school t-shirts with Disney and cat-themed artwork.

    This is the place for denim junkies on a vintage kick: you'll find overalls, customized Levis, Boss of the Road, Can't Bust'em and other rare finds sourced from all over the country (and even Japan). You might even find jeans from the 19th century.

    Each piece has a tag letting you know the era from whence it came. They specialize in mid-century pieces, which has made it a favorite of costume designers for shows like "Mad Men." There's vintage furniture, bedding and kitchenware, too.

    Check out the $1 Sunday sale. It's a little chaotic & we can't guarantee you won't have to use your seamstress skills or some Shout on whatever you get. But for $1 & the potential for some great finds, are you really going to complain?

    This vintage shop has a very distinct, very Laurel Canyon vibe going on. So if your bod is caftan ready for summer or you're already planning next year's Coachella outfit, this is the place you'll want to hit up.
