Help wanted!

Once again I turn to you lovely ladies for a bit of help..
My husband and I have been scrimping and saving and have finally managed to save up enough money to go to The States for 3 weeks this September, tickets bought, car rented now all I need is a bit of advice regarding things to see and vintage stores...
We will be visiting my father in law in Las Vegas for a week or so but we will also drive down to Los Angeles and San Diego (-and Disneyland off course..) We've been there quite a few times but have never really seen any exhibitions or museums and that sort. I'm considering the Hollywood museum hoping that there will be some costumes but I don't really know... Also I promised a lady here who has a vintage shop that mainly sells cocktail and evening dresses from the 50's, 60's and 70's that I would be on the look-out for dresses she could sell...
So whadda you think? Vintage shops with reasonable prices, does that even exist in that area? -and where does an old Hollywood lover (not that kind!) like me go? Or surprise me! There might be things there to see that I haven't considered yet...


  1. How exciting! You should hit up two of my favorite vintage spots one is Shareen Vintage - I found some of my favorite dresses at this place. and if you love old Hollywood- I recommend going to Hollywoodland. It's completely maintained it's small-town/old feel. Plus there's an antique store there and the time I went there were all these awesome dresses in my size. I suggest you go there too this is the blog I did on it:

  2. Thanks doll:) That sounds great!!! With the dresses you have I have to go there;)

  3. I'm not able to help with where to go, but I would just like to voice my envy! I have never been before and at the moment probably won't be able to for a while, but I hope you enjoy yourselves!

  4. Thank you Stefanie we will, we always do:) Hope you'll be able to go there someday...

  5. Not sure if i'm too late, but found this post by happenstance, and wanted to suggest my book, Vintage LA for help in finding all the very best vintage spots in CA:

    But if you already went, hope you had a lovely, old-Hollywood glamorous time : )
