This place is an upscale Goodwill store located in downtown Anaheim, off Harbor Boulevard and Broadway, near D-Rinks ice skating facility. If you got a lazy afternoon and went to browse a vintage store, this is the place to check it out.
Rare, by Goodwill
Everything is namebrand here says the salesgirl. I found not just namebrand stuff, like Gap or Levi, but actually higher brands like Gucci, Dooney and Bourke, Coach, even Christian Louboutin, which retails new at $900 and higher.
I even found a Louis Vuitton purse for $59.99. Was it real? Well, it had the stamp inside, even the identification number. Even if it was not real, it sure looked nice. But, it wasn’t in the cards for me as i already had a perfectly nice LV purse, so I put it back on the shelf.
Everything in the store is final sale. Except for the electronics which is by exchange only. One nice thing about this Goodwill store is it’s very organized. Unlike your typical Goodwill store, which smells weird and have stuff laying everywhere, this one feels like it’s a boutique. It’s pricier than a traditional Goodwill, but I’ll pay more for a nicer store.
The downside of this place is finding parking. There is street parking, but if you can’t parallel park, try parking up the street at the parking structure near the ice rink.
Hours are little wimpy, opened until 8:00 PM on a Friday night. Then again, the only people that hang out in this part are the ice rink people, or people eating at nearby restaurants.
