1. Sunbeam Vintage

106 S Avenue 58, Los Angeles, CA

The low­down: Ebee Mar­tinez and her hus­band form the force of cura­tion behind Sun­beam Vin­tage. Their back­ground in design sets their col­lec­tion apart, mak­ing Sun­beam one of the best spots for vin­tage fur­ni­ture in Los Ange­les. Their selec­tion of vin­tage pieces focus­es on style and crafts­man­ship while keep­ing prices afford­able. One of the biggest com­plaints is that the selec­tion of vin­tage goods in store is some­what lim­it­ed. Fear not, Sun­beam Vin­tage also boasts an online cat­a­log with even more inven­to­ry. Remem­ber that, as with all vin­tage stores, you’re like­ly to find indi­vid­ual mas­ter­pieces instead of sets.

Price: $ – Prices are both rea­son­able and afford­able. They even encour­age dis­cus­sions on pric­ing to keep inven­to­ry mov­ing. Exam­ple pric­ing: $450 for a king-sized vin­tage headboard. 

Best time to go: Head­ing down­town is nev­er fun, but the unique­ness, qual­i­ty, and beau­ty of Sunbeam’s vin­tage fur­ni­ture make it worth the trip. Your best bet is to go on a week­day; the ear­li­er, the bet­ter, to avoid the rush.

2. Big Daddy’s Antiques

3334 La Cienega Pl, Los Angeles, CA 

The low­down: The truth is that the high tick­et price on most items makes Big Daddy’s Antiques a muse­um for more peo­ple than a des­ti­na­tion where vin­tage items can indulge your thrift. Regard­less, the incred­i­ble vari­ety in vin­tage fur­ni­ture and decor match­es the ver­i­fi­a­bil­i­ty. They also car­ry repro­duc­tions and cre­ate cus­tom fur­ni­ture if you can’t find the per­fect piece. They don’t have an online store or web­site, but they make up for it on Insta­gram with about 50,000 fol­low­ers. Occa­sion­al­ly, they’ll post new items; you just have to DM them to inquire about the cost. You’ll also find light­ing and art-relat­ed prod­ucts, adding to the store’s con­sid­er­able cheer and style. 

Price: $$$ –Big Dad­dy’s pric­ing is not as accom­mo­dat­ing as their park­ing in LA’s heart. Exam­ple pric­ing: $8,500 for a vin­tage black leather sofa. 

Best time to go: The shop is spa­cious with ample park­ing. If you’re just look­ing, vis­it­ing over the week­end can ease any awk­ward­ness of leav­ing emp­ty-hand­ed. Just know that week­ends tend to be busy since Big Daddy’s Antiques holds its own as a legit LA destination.
