Palm Springs Vintage Shopping Guide

I’m excited to be sharing my Palm Springs Vintage Shopping Guide with you today! One of the top questions I get asked is: What are the best vintage shops in Palm Springs? Fellow vintage-lovers Beth and Devon wanted to know my favorite shops too, so we headed out on a little Palm Springs road trip to hunt for home decor treasures and more from eras past. Come along to see my favorite vintage shops and thrift stores in Palm Springs!

I opted for a ’60s glam-in-the-desert vibe with poppy sunset hues for a look that channeled another era but felt modern enough for today. After all, it’s the mix of old and new that makes an outfit (or a room) feel fresh, don’t you think?

Cute and comfy polka dots shorts, an arm party with a message, and wedges that were comfortable and tall enough for a day of shopping Between Two Blondes (tall, supermodel blondes, that is) in 105-degree temps and I was set.






My Favorite Vintage Shops & Thrift Stores

Now that you’ve seen what I wore for a day of shopping in Palm Springs, here’s where we went. There are many more gems in the desert, but these are the shops I go to time and time again and consider a must-shop for treasure-hunters, especially if it’s your first time visiting Palm Springs. Stay tuned for more guides sharing more vintage shops in the desert, plus my favorite stops and things to do in Palm Springs…


1. Angel View Thrift Shop & Angel View Prestige Boutique

454 N Indian Canyon Dr  Palm Springs, CA 92262
(760) 320-1733
Hours: 10am-6p daily

Angel View Thrift Mart is where I head if I’m hunting for amazing deals on furniture and decor. Like most thrift stores, it’s hit or miss, but I’ve found everything from bamboo cane chairs to wicker furniture and even a swan table on recent visits to this location (there are several desert locations). Directly next door is Angel View Prestige Boutique, which houses the clothing side of things, where I recently scored an amazing bumblebee yellow blazer for $12. In the back are more housewares, mostly dishes and glassware. I got lucky and scored an amazing set of 25 blush pink champagne and cocktail glasses, each for only $.99.

Bonus: Proceeds go to help kids with disabilities (Regis Philbin’s son grew up in an Angel View children’s home in the high desert; random fact I know from reading Regis books like the crazy golden girl I am).

Tip: There’s a warehouse in the back that houses thousands of items like records and clothes in bins, and it’s said that the real deals happen here, but it’s not for the faint of heart. Dig at your own risk.


2. Dazzles

69930 Highway 111, Suite 119  Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 (inside The Atrium)
(760) 459-3548
Hours: Wed-Sun, 10a-5p

Formerly located at the north end of Palm Springs but now in Rancho Mirage, it would be a travesty to miss this candy land of mid-century ice buckets, side tables, bakelite jewelry and glassware in every color the rainbow. It’s not thrift (i.e. vintage pieces having been repainted and restored) but the prices are fair and the owner’s friendly and a wealth of information on the thousands of pieces packed into the small shop. Doyenne of the desert Trina Turk is a fan too and, like me, wants to buy the groovy shelves that line the windows, but the owner graciously refuses. And who can blame him?

Bonus: A courtyard of flamingos greets you as you enter, providing the perfect Palm Springs photo op.


3. Bon Vivant

766 N Palm Canyon Dr  Palm Springs, CA 92262
(760) 534-3197
Hours: Thursday-Monday 10:30a-4p

Located in the Uptown Design District  of Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive, Trina Turk once told me this was her favorite store in Palm Springs and I couldn’t agree more. And the prices are very reasonable. What it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality — the tightly edited selection ensures you’ll find a gem every time you visit. I once found a Givenchy necklace from 1978 that made a great gift for my mother-in-law and have picked up countless birthday gifts here — and always find something for myself of course. Cufflinks, earrings, brooches and the best selection of owl necklaces I’ve ever seen in one place, plus vases, groovy glassware and mid-century home decorative items to spruce up your space. The owner is the nicest guy, too, which makes it all the better.

Tip: Catch one of the best iced coffees or a crisp iced tea or strawberry smoothie at nearby Koffi.


4. Revivals Palm Springs

611 S Palm Canyon Dr
Palm Springs
(760) 318-6430
Hours: Mon-Sat 10a-6p; Sun 10a-5pm 

Ah, the holy grail. There are five locations of Revivals in the desert but the one in Palm Springs is my go-to. It’s a thrifter’s paradise of pre-loved home furnishings and decor, plus clothing and jewelry too. There’s junk too, but I almost always find a gem. You can find me in the glassware section, scoring glasses for my bar cart. Sign up for their newsletter and be notified of their sales, including 50 percent-off days (usually Thursdays)!

Tip: There’s a new furniture section in the back, but it’s the throwback pieces in the front of the store that make my heart sing. I even spied the swan dining table that matched my swan sofa table that I’d just scored at Angel View! For Fred Baby’s sake, I resisted, but for the love of design will somebody please get that table (how fab would it look if you spraypainted/lacquered those swans?!)

Bonus: Proceeds benefit Desert AIDS Project.


Tip: Thirsty again? It’s the desert, you need to drink a lot! Palm Greens Cafe, directly next door to Revivals, serves yummy fresh blended juices, smoothies and natural root beer floats! They have lots of gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan options too.

5. Revivals Cathedral City


68-401 Highway 111
Cathedral City
(760) 969-5747
Hours: Mon-Sat 10a-6p; Sun 10a-5pm

Like the location in Palm Springs, it’s thrift so it’s hit or miss, but I almost always walk away with a gem.

Tip: Before heading to this second Revivals location in Cathedral City, stop by the second location of Koffi for a cool drink, located next door to the Ace Hotel.

1700 S Camino Real
Palm Springs
(760) 322-7776
Hours: 6:30a-5p
