i recently stopped by one of my favorite thrift stores, (Birda Paradise Thrift 3506 Sunset Boulevard LA CA 90026) for a bit of the old shop shop shop. as usual i found many lovely things. the high waisted skirt is quite a dainty/dapper thing. i feel like a real lady in it. the black velour wide legged trousers are soft, comfortable and effortlessly chic. they graze my shoes just right. ummm the shoes? f yeah, the shoes. i'm pretty sure i pulled a mister furley at the sight of those Gucci scrumptious yum yummers still in the box complete with dust bag and a Maxfield sticker on the side!!! what what what????
The prices are excellent and the merchandise is unique. I have been shopping at Berda's for over a decade. All sales help to support the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic. This is a nonprofit health care facility, providing free medical & counseling services to the underserved Los Angeles community. BUT... they are struggling now, due to our ill economy. the Berda Paradise Thrift relies on our donations to survive. so, if you have a bag of clothes that just will not sell, please take them here. they also take household items, books, blankets, jewelry and unicorns(there are a lot of sweet little guys there right now). please help them out. i am collecting bags and boxes from friends and family for a drop off on wednesday. send me an email if you would like more information.
spring cleaning and a good cause, chickens.
