Thrifting in fun!

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 8:22 PM

NOTE: We have been in close contact with our fashion guru, Vera Fang, in order keep you looking good. This is the second of our multi-part series, some of which will reappear in our annual Fall Style issue, on stands Aug. 30.

We've been scouring Bend's local thrift stores in order to figure out which local second-hand shops consistently have the best stuff. We took along Ms. Fang, who helped us source some real gems. Below are a few of our biggest scores as well as our list of favorite thrift stores—so far.

BEST TRUCKER HAT

"Realllly? Only $4? This Harley T would cost $28 in L.A." -V. Fang


BEST FUR COAT THAT WE'RE PRETTY SURE WAS MADE FROM A REAL ANIMAL

"This would be a nice, economical way to stay warm this fall without resorting to the puffy-coat look—the ubiquitous Bend fashion piece. Bleh." -V. Fang
