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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
