Out of the Closet

Thrift shop with flash

There are thrift shops and then there are thrift shops. Some are the saddest places in the world. Out of the Closet thrift stores are a cut above, having a slightly campy edge.

The chain of California stores is owned and operated by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the largest specialized provider of cutting-edge medicine and advocacy regardless of ability to pay, so your spare cash is going to a good cause. You never know what you’ll find and the merchandise sometimes achieves a faded glory. Their shops generate 30,000 donations a year – some from A-Listers like Elizabeth Taylor, Bruce Willis and Carol Burnett.

The store in West Hollywood is one of their best – it even offers free HIV testing.
