If you want to try out some vintage shopping, why not head on over to Highland Park and check out the numerous shops on York Boulevard. These places are all close by each other, as well as some good spots to eat as well. This area is somewhat off-the beaten track, which just increases the appeal of all the characters you’ll find around here.
Stash On York
6000 York Blvd. Ste C, Los Angeles, CA 90042
This store features vintage, reconstructed vintage and original designs all discovered or created by owner Kiki Stash. It’s easy to get lost in sensory overload, finding yourself drawn to touching and examining every one of the highly unique garments. Your nose even gets a treat with the smells of the selection of all-natural candles. Stash is definitely a qualified guide to help you sort through all the gems you’ll encounter.

Urchin has a lot going for it. With reasonable pricing and friendly staff, this store makes vintage clothing accessible to newcomers. The employees (who have clearly done their fair share of shopping there as well) are generally happy to offer their advice when you step out of the fitting room.
