One might think that with all the modern Malls in Orange County, it would be difficult to find vintage shops. But actualy, some of these malls, such as Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza also have vintage stores selling clothing, furniture, jewellery, shoes and other articles from the 40s through the 80s. This allows shoppers to match a vintage piece with a more modern article and both can be found in the same Mall.
In Orange County there is a large selection of vintage stores that carry clothing from the 1940's. One of the present day trends is mixing vintage clothing with modern styles, a leopard coat from the 1960s or a 1940s platform heel shoes, will definitely add that unique look that many are seeking.
Besides clothing many of the stores also sell vintage furniture, garden accessories, old records that go back to the 50s, and music memorabilia.
Some of the most affordable places to find designer clothing, vintage costumes, and old furniture are the thrift shops run by charity organizations and Goodwill Outlet stores which also support different charities. Visiting a vintage store can be both rewarding and affordable, helping to stretch ones budget in today's tight economy.
