Best Reliable Vintage - 2012
Perched in the middle of Haight Street's vintage strip, Wasteland is to vintage shopping what kindergarten is to later grades: It's warm, fun, and everything that great second-hand shopping is supposed to be, without any of the work. With no weird odors, no tightly packed racks, and clothing ranging from modern to funky retro garb, it's easy to find something — several somethings, actually — to add to your wardrobe. At such an accessible store, clothes sell fast, and new pieces are always arriving, perfect for the fashion-obsessed who add to their wardrobe every few weeks. It's the ideal first stop for any San Franciscan uninitiated to thrifting — if such a citizen even exists.
