Vintage shopping in Burbank & Long Beach

In a couple of months it’s going to mark exactly one year since I visited California. I fell in love with Burbank and its vintage and antiques shops, so I decided to write a post with the shops I visited during my trip.

Playclothes Vintage
Magnolia Blvd is the jam for vintage. Seriously! And Playclothes Vintage is definitely the place to go. They have a large space with different rooms and all kinds of vintage and antiques you can think of. From lingerie, pottery to casual garments, they specialise in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

Swift Vintage
We visited the shop just to check if they had anything interesting, and we found great stuff for men. The owner even offered us a discount for a repro vintage western jacket. Check the bakelite and jewelry collection they have.

Pinup Girl Boutique

They sell repro garments and accesorize from Pinup Girl Clothing. A must visit when you’re in California! Friendly stuff and fantastic atmosphere. Plus they have the best clothes one can ever buy!


Audrey K Boutique

They have their own range of clothing and also sell other repro brands. Audrey, the owner, also sells vintage inspired purses and other products perfect as a gift. Check their social media to see if they organize any yard sale with Pinup Girl Clothing when you’re around!

Besame Cosmetics
I’m sure you’ve all heard about Besame Cosmetics, the most popular vintage inspired make up brand. All their products are cruelty free and present a beautiful packaging. Perfect to channel your inner Hollywood diva! Don’t forget to visit their shop in Burbank, in front of Pinup Girl Clothing.

BAIT Footwear
Located in Long Beach, they sell the cutest shoes you’ll ever wear. Their designs are all cruelty free and are vintage inspired. Make sure to visit their shop!  

Sneaky Tiki Boutique

Fans of the tiki culture have a place to visit when in Long Beach. Sneaky Tiki Boutique offers vintage clothing and accessorize with something in common: the tiki aesthetics. 


Also located in Long Beach’s Retro Row – the best area to shop vintage – one can find Meow, a kitschy shop full of surprises. They even sell vintage fridges! Make sure to check their shop, where they have areas set by decade. 

These are some of the shops I visited last year, can’t wait to go back!

Los Angeles & California

Hello! No time no blogging!
I decided to have September for myself: holidays, personal stuff and getting back to work.But I’m back and ready to show you how is my life at the moment.
Last month I went on vacation to Los Angeles, and I really loved the experience. It’s been my 3rd time in the United States and every time I go there I am more sure that I need to leave Europe and move to America.
I explored the Los Angeles area – Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Monica, Burbank and Long Beach – and fell in love with the huge Rockabilly & Vintage scene there. It’s crazy!

If you’re planning to visit California soon, remember to visit Burbank – Magnolia Blvd is the best place for vintage and antiques – and Cherry St on Long Beach for more vintage finds! ❤
Oh, and besides exploring more parts of the States, I also scored bargains from some of my favourite shops! I can’t wait to go back to California.
