4. Vintageweave Interiors
If the French farmhouse style of antique stores is your thing, this delightful collection of antique and vintage plates, milk bottles, coffee mills and more is the perfect place for you to find the treasures you seek. Conveniently located on West Third Street, the best time to browse through this magnificent place is on weekday afternoons.
5. Pepe’s Thrifty Shop
This delightful little store is one that locals keep to themselves so visitors don’t end up taking all of its gorgeous antique and vintage items. Located on West Sunset Boulevard, its quirky exterior does no justice to the treasures you can find inside. It is a great place to find reasonably priced homier-looking antiques, but finding that special treasure can take time and patience given that the store is packed with merchandise and there’s little space for movement. Even so, it is well worth a try if you are simply looking for something unexpected and not a more specific type of item.
