So we made a list of the top-rated thrift shops and vintage stores in LA, so you wouldn't need to browse through them all.

Here they are!

Jet Rag

Jet Rag is the place to go if you are looking for the best bargains in Hollywood. No shop in LA or anywhere else can compete with their famous $1 Sunday Sales.

Due to the pandemic, their Sunday Sales are now held in an outdoor yard, so you don't have to worry about being elbowed in the rib while browsing through their collection.

The shop offers vintage clothing for both men and women and a lot of more modern pieces as well.
