Orange County is home to some of the best designer consignment stores around and you never quite know what you'll find. And isn't that half the fun? The other half is getting your finds at far below retail pricing. Designer labels, vintage styles, art, furniture, purses. You name it, you'll find it at one of these fabulous stops.

Buffalo Exchange
4608 E. 2nd St.
Long Beach, CA. 90803
(562) 433-1991

Buffalo Exchange offers new and recycled fashions at various progressive neighborhoods in and around Orange County, such as 2nd St. in Long Beach, The Lab in Costa Mesa and at the Fullerton Promenade. You can bring in your "former favorites" for trade or cash on the spot so technically it's not a consignment store, as it's quicker cash than that. Their inventory includes designer labels, vintage, jeans, leather, current basics and one-of-a-kind items. You'll also find brand new merchandise and accessories.

1850 S Pacific Coast Hwy
Laguna Beach, CA. 92651
(949) 497-9080

The lovely Rachiel Macalistaire runs this trendy vintage boutique where one can find fabulous items from all decades. One side of the shop is devoted to vintage clothing, jewelry, and accessories (perhaps some 1980's vuarnet sunglasses or a 1950's designer wiggle dress), while the other half of the boutique space is devoted to vintage art, barware and furniture. All decades and styles are represented in both spaces.
