What Once Was Old, Is Now New. Shopping at thrift and antique stores in Ventura
Coalition thrift store has stylish name brand purses at lower prices. They also carry some soaps handmade in Ventura. This is usually my go-to place when I’m searching for the perfect bag or simply browsing the clothes racks. Aside from having lots of clothing, Coalition thrift store supports survivors of sexual assault and battery. Your money will be supporting women who have come out of abusive relationships.
Buffalo Exchange Ventura Now Buffalo Exchange is not necessarily a thrift store but a consignment store. It is however one of my favorites. If you are like me and your personal styles are constantly changing, Buffalo is the place for you. Every other month I find myself needing a new look and Buffalo exchange allows you to trade your clothes for some new styles. They have such eclectic styles including vintage, beach, punk etc.
Goodwill It wouldn’t be right for me to talk about thrift stores without me mentioning Goodwill. Tons of awesome finds in this particular Goodwill on Main street including furniture, music, books and clothes. One of my favorite times to go to thrifting is around Halloween because they always have so many creative costumes to choose from. So when you do happen to get the shopping bug, head on over to Downtown Ventura and check out the thrift stores.
Main Street has a handful more antique stores that have themes ranging from gorgeous hardwood furniture, Hawaiian shirts, Coca-Cola bottles, postcards, and pictures, to turquoise jewelry, and so much more. Whether you’re looking for that next sequin outfit or a porcelain dresser knob, you can find all these treasures while antiquing in Ventura.
