Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Fall Fashion Part II: Look at this great stuff we found!

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

"Where else are you going to find a NRA hat? This is wonderful." -V. Fang


BEST T SHIRT

"Soft 50 cotton/50 poly blend, vintage T with a classic postcard-esque design. Our find of the day!" -V. Fang


BEST DISPLAY OF AMERICANA


"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


BEST ONE-PIECE SKI SUIT

"You will need this for at least three parties this season. Trust me." -V. Fang
