Editorial Review. A one-stop shop for all things vintage, including men's and women's clothing, accessories and costume jewelry.
Shop here if you enjoy unprofessional rudeness and torn water damaged clothing.
Now let me be fair and start off by saying, I used to shop here quite frequently and never had any serious complaints. However, on my last few trips to LA I have attempted to have a good experience shopping here but I have to finally say I will NEVER be going again.
First of all, my boyfriend accidently left his wallet there last month (his fault, I know) but what infuriated us was the fact that an employee had found the wallet which had all of our vacation money in it and lied about it to his face! This was also despite the fact other employees later told us it had been found, but never returned to us!
This was the last straw for us. Before everything else was tolerable because of their super low prices. But don't be fooled by their cheapness, you'll get a better deal at the Salvation Army and at least their clothes will be in better condition.
If you still feel up to digging through, be sure you inspect everything before you buy it!
My last time shopping here I got home only to discover all my dresses had funky water stains on them that smelled moldy even after a trip to the dry cleaners!! To top it off, only two had working zippers and the rest had various tears, stains and holes. No wonder they have a no returns no refunds policy!
Cheap, vintage threads. I love coming here...its so much fun! It's like you go back in time, but always manage to find something cool to wear now....I have found some pretty cool things that dont look too old or wasted....and the prices are reasonable..u know how sometimes you go into a vintage/thrift store and you might as well buy something new cuz of the high price? not here, prices are good and clothing is awesome..
Thrifty Fun. I always have a blast looking around the Venice store. You never know what you're going to find. My boyfriend now makes regular visits and has picked up everything from old western shirts to camo shorts. Who knew we'd ever see those again...
