Apologies for the delays and lack of posts and new listings- we just spent the last month moving from Los Angeles to New York City!
It was a good two years spent in California, and most importantly the time that Castaway Vintage was created- but just can’t compare to the 8 years spent in New York City. So, with making the decision to move back to NYC, bringing Castaway Vintage along for the ride I promised to share our travels and encounters with thrifting cross country on the blog, in a series “Thrifting Our Way Across the USA”.
I start off our series with a goodbye to California, and a look at my last month there, and the start of trip across this country!
Our last month in LA- within one week, we were able to see a free secret Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros show at the Frank Lloyd Wright Ranch in Malibu- completely catered with gourmet food, waiters floating around with trays of wine, full open bar, blankets, dessert shots- the works- possibly one of the most amazing live show experiences I’ve been to!
That weekend we went to Coachella in the desert and had a great time attending parties at the Vestal ranch, Philip Lim house party, Mulberry party, Flaunt Magazine party, along with others I can’t remember, and found some amazing thrift stores as well!
After finally moving everything out of our 2 bedroom house- not an easy feat when moving 3,000 miles- selling all of our furniture on Craigslist, having a yard sale for all the odds and ends, then shipping $800 worth of boxes to NY- we had our last night going away party at 4100 bar in Silverlake. We headed to Orange County for a week to spend with Ray’s family and hitting up the beach every day, having our last night out seeing Black Heart Procession play in Long Beach.

Finally, our last night in California with friends in Long Beach and seeing Black Heart Procession!
Goodbye California!! Stay tuned for cross country drive and thrift store adventures!!
