Please pardon the lack of postings, updates, and product listings while we are in this transition period!! We are doing our best to keep up and list as often as we can- and will be picking up all sorts of new merchandise for the shop when we begin our 3,000 mile drive across the country starting tomorrow! I hope to highlight all the small towns we drive through and thrift store finds that come our way in a new blog series called “Thrifting Our Way Across the USA” coming this weekend/early next week.
While it’s true Castaway Vintage was born in the heart of Southern California- Los Angeles, the owners of Castaway Vintage have our roots firmly planted in NYC, as we both lived there for several years before transplanting to LA. It’s been fun, the weather is amazing, and the flea markets are hard to beat- but the excitement and energy of the city has been calling us back home. Hardly and end to Castaway Vintage- but just new beginnings and fun in finding treasures for the shop on the other coast of the country!! I’m excited to find my new secret shopping spots for all the best vintage for all the loyal Castaway Vintage customers that have helped us grow in the past year and a half- starting with a mere 12 listings on day one, now just 14 sales away from 400!!
Our 1st Etsy Sale- Nov 11, 2009

Friends in Los Angeles- come see Castaway Vintage tomorrow at Space 1520, for All Vintage Everything; a one day vintage only pop-up marketplace!! Presented by DNA (designers+artists), co-founder Lirany Vasquez states that:
“DNA (designers+artists) nurtures and promotes up-and-coming fashion & accessories designers, graphic artists, painters and photographers through special projects, social media, events and shopping parties. Our goal is to expose fresh talent to the cultural and retail markets of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City. We strongly believe in supporting the fashion community as a whole, which is why we also work closely with established designers and vintage retailers– who’ve become so influential in today’s market and trends.
Our events are really fun! We have great vendors, amazing fashion, great deals, live dj sets– a great shopping party vibe. We love the courtyard at Space 15Twenty because its the perfect place to enjoy an outdoor event like this. Also, Umami burger is part of the courtyard so you can grab a burger and a beer to refuel from all the shopping!“
So come out and enjoy vintage shopping from 12 hand selected vendors- including Castaway Vintage!! We will have a $5 rack, and discounted prices on all of our merchandise!!
I absolutely adore leopard print. Such a classic print that’s widely versatile- from 1960’s Mod swing coats, to 1980’s trashy Peg Bundy looks it always stands out and gives a sultry edge to any wardrobe. I wish I could find more vintage leopard print, as of right now we only have 2 leopard pieces in stock at Castaway Vintage, though they are both amazing pieces! Here are our lovely leopard pieces, and some favorite pop culture leopard inspiration! The dress is spoken for an Aussie customer, but the amazing rare 1960’s-70’s Robby Len sexy cutout swimsuit is still up for grabs!!

Hope you enjoy all these classic leopard finds, be sure to shop Castaway Vintage ♥♥
One of our most sought after pieces this season, recently featured in the Etsy Newsletter, and with close to 2,000 views and 85 Etsy ‘Hearts’ – the classic vintage wool 1960’s Camel Cape, is now on sale!! Most recently listed for $145, I have now dropped the price to $95, after noticing a few tiny moth holes on the back acquired over the winter in storage. Really not too noticeable with how the cape drapes in the back, and still a stunning clean classic piece!! Compare to over $160 at American Apparel for plain, mass produced generic versions!!
Also, we have tons of new listing that have been going up lately, almost daily- and selling out quick! Be sure to visit us on Etsy at Castaway Vintage for all of our latest finds!!
