Spring is rapidly approaching and it is time for (thrift’n-ista) fashionistas to freshen up their wardrobes for the new season. What could be better than to clean out your closets and buy, sell and trade for some more fashionable acquisitions? Crossroads Trading Company is the place to go to get some fresh looks for spring- plus make a little cash/trade for store credit.
There are two Crossroads Trading Company locations in Orange County. One is at Westpark Plaza (near The Olive Garden and Sprouts) at 3877 Alton Parkway Irvine, CA 92606. The other is at 19th and Harbor at 1835 Newport Blvd B-123 Costa Mesa CA 92627. Both locales are bright pleasant organized spaces, chock full of gently used (and some new) men’s and women’s fashions. Clothing is a variety of contemporary basics and some trendy items- jeans, dresses, shirts, tops, purses, belts. There are plenty of designer labels scattered throughout to add interest (Diesel, Juicy, True Religion, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, pricey shoe labels etc).
You have to expect a nice store when Irvine- not a community known for a penchant for thrift stores- has a resale clothing shop such as Crossroads. I was not disappointed- the Irvine store was lovely (not even a hint of traditional "thrift" about the place). At the Irvine location I found plenty of clothes in great condition, organized by colors and types, with great prices. I noted Forever 21 and H&M brand items available along with aforementioned labels. There were also lots of half-price racks of clothes with even better bargains. Sizes leaned toward the smaller ranges though I did find some bargains for (larger) me. Give yourself plenty of time to browse the racks- there are lots of beautiful items to happily peruse. Thrift’n-istas, you WILL certainly come away with a bargain from Crossroads.
Right now Crossroads Trading Company is looking for spring things for trade/purchase. They would like ladies fashions such as classic oxford shirts, floral palazzo pants, lightweight knits, tea length skirts, varsity jackets, any pretty pastel anything. Men’s items they desire are bright sweaters, slim cut chinos, stripes and spots of all kinds, running shoes. They even have drop-off buying, where you can leave your items at their buying counter and return after 24 hours to collect cash or trade. Store hours for both stores are Mon-Sat 10am-8pm Sun 11am-7pm. Call for further details (Irvine store 949-474-1545, Costa Mesa store 949-722-0777).
Crossroads Trading Company has an awesome website as well, if you want to get an idea ahead of time of their available styles and prices thereof. Currently there is a fashion show of items from their Sacramento location complete with prices of the looks they showcase.

Don't miss out on finding some pretty spring things for your wardrobe- go to the Crossroads!
