On my most recent trip to California, my friend and I filmed some fun footage at one of our favorite vintage and thrifting stores: Flashbacks.
Flashbacks is a cute buy/sell/trade store with two locations (Encinitas and Hillcrest). With a huge supply of dresses, tops, jackets and shoes, they’ve got your usual thrifting shopping experience, but the best part is the quirky, era-themed pieces like wigs and crazy ensembles. Definitely head to Flashbacks if you want to DIY an outfit for an over-the-top party.
Of course, every San Diegan knows that if you visit the Encinitas location, you have to grab some food from Swami’s Cafe (I recommend the Acai bowl) and head over to the Meditation Gardens for some incredible views of the Pacific.
Flashbacks is located at 576 South Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, California 92024. For more information, visit their Yelp page. Their Hillcrest location is at 3849 5th Ave, San Diego, California 92103.
