Bargain Finds


Top 10 Bargain Sources for 2016

By Suzanne O'Connor

Another year gone and well over 70 new hot bargain places reviewed. Here’s the best of the best:

10. Trove
2008 Westwood Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90025
Parking lot in rear

(424) 256-2861

With few new Westside bargain haunts opening up these days, when I heard about a new hipster resale boutique Trove opening, I bee lined over to get a peek.

I wasn’t disappointed.  This nicely organized, fun, well lit shop has a terrific selection of trending designer and name brand women’s apparel as well as a fun selection of home décor and gift items all at 60%-85% off original retail.

9. Just Like Home Affordable Furniture
18344 Oxnard St.  #109
Tarzana, CA 91356
(818) 689-9494

Set back in an industrial office complex, this tiny showroom specializes in custom order, catalog, factory direct furniture from over a dozen different manufactures at 30%-80% off retail. They can charge less because they have a low overhead and a low mark up.

You can buy just about everything through them from lower end budget apartment furniture to better quality homes furnishings.

8. Summerville Outlet
1800 S. Turner Ave.
Ontario, CA 91761

So what do you do if you start expanding your Patio Furniture business by branching out and buying different product and then decide it was a bad idea. You open a temporary outlet and sell that brand new product direct to the public at wholesale pricing.

That’s exactly what Summerville has done. After purchasing thousands of items to go into a new home store, they changed their minds and are now selling it at their cost at their warehouse. Here you save 40%-70% on small appliances, home décor, cookware, glassware, bedding, rugs, kitchen ware and much more.
I’d hurry to bag a deal here!

7. Grocery Outlet
Multiple Locations

New on the local grocery scene is the Grocery Outlet.  Unlike other, so called “ Grocery Outlets”, this chain is one to take notice of. You will save up to 50% on everything.

These well-organized, clean stores have a selection that can compete with regular markets. You’ll find almost everything on your Grocery list. Well, maybe not every single brand name, but enough to make shopping here worthwhile. Which is something few grocery outlets can claim!
If you’ve got one near you, by all means go! You’ll save a bundle!

Return Engagement Resale Boutique in Redondo Beach has been a gem of a women’s resale boutique for nearly 20 years. During a recent visit they proved to continually be on the edge of the designer fashion trends as well as keeping it real…. A deliciously well priced at 60%-95% off original retail.

Here you’ll find upscale classics as well as cutting edge trendy apparel, all well laid out, well priced and without a snooty attitude. The sales staff are happy, friendly and actually helpful. So you’re not on your own as you cruise the full racks. 
I dare you not to have a blast while shopping for designer bargains.
