Blogger CaliVintage Shares Her Favorite Vintage Haunts In The Bay

Web01
Over the years, I've spent a lot of time scouring for vintage treasures in every corner of The Bay. I've gone down the coast from thrift stores to estate sales to curated boutiques. I consider myself a West Coast vintage connoisseur of some sorts.
With so many vintage shops bringing in new inventory all the time, I'd say you probably can't go wrong in any shop, but I definitely have a list of my personal favorite haunts to get you started.
