Ay Papi, Vintage Mi-ami

MIAMI! VINTAGE! Mecca of retired New York Jewish and Italian ladies with style who end up leaving their best duds to the local thrift store. And I ready to grab ‘em up…..

While many of us have just gotten the sand out of our shoes after last weekend at Art Basel Miami Beach, I have to go back in time to talk Miami thrift.

Now Miami proper is good for higher-end vintage – to which I can attest because I dropped a bit of cash on a pair of mint condition 1990s Versace print pants (I guess my last post got my appetite whetted) at the Fly Boutique. Poor store name but amazing collection. The boutique is conveniently just off Lincoln Road.

Other South Beach stores that excite me are C Medeleines and  Divine Trash both on Biscayne Boulevard. This is talking super duper high end – pristine Parada and the like, but worth it for a major piece.

But if you really want to get some thrifting done you go to Boca or Ft. Lauderdale. Most of the Jewish Community Centers have second-hand shops – in particular the Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center looks like it has a stellar selection And the Florida Jewish Charities Thrift Store has $1 rummage bins! What? I need to get back down there.

Now if you want to stay closer to the beach to wash the dust off after some rummaging – hit the Douglas Gardens Thrift Stores in Brownsville. People rave about this shop. It is a big ass warehouse filled with racks and racks of sun-kissed second hand. Good for staples and gently-worn pumps. This is one-stop shopping – so plan ahead, you’ll need some time here.

Also you should simply rent a car and go for a drive- that is the best way to happen upon some finds.
