Whether you’re looking for a matching vintage modern sofa and love seat combo or a period starburst clock, there is a second hand store for you in Long Beach. Rest assured that one of the following top 5 Long Beach shops will have the perfect MCM furniture and Décor for you.
1. Déjà Vu Vintage Furnishings
This list would be amiss to not include Déjà Vu as a must-visit shop. We’ve put it at the top as MCM shoppers can depend on finding unique retro items for the home offered by a true collector. The owner, Vincent, is known for being friendly and helpful to all customers. His small storefront features a curated collection of high-end mid-century modern antiques in excellent condition. Prices are a bit high but you get what you pay for in quality and authenticity. Déjà Vu’s website showcases their offerings so you can get a peak at the inventory ahead of time. From modern nesting table sets to vintage barbecues and shag rugs, this shop has your MCM décor needs covered.
This Retro Row thrift store offers much more in terms of MCM décor and furniture than you might think. While the shop has highly rated selections of second-hand clothing and vinyl records, you can be sure to find some unique, low-priced mid-century items. Inretrospect has pieces from a wide range of eras. The consignment store features cute vignettes throughout, showcasing their variety of period items. The friendly owners and staff can help you find anything in the store. Prices are on the low side so you can go ahead and get attached to that vintage armoire or retro plastic microwave dish set. There is a lot to see in this store so budget your time wisely as the shop is only open 6-7 hours each day.
3. District Modern
Formerly known as OC Modern, District Modern offers mid-century modern collectibles in perfect to near-perfect condition. Their collection mainly consists of furniture but there are plenty of beautiful accent pieces to be had. District Modern also features high-end antique designer pieces for the true collector. Prices are on the higher side but the quality can’t be beat. District Modern used to be a vintage furniture gallery run out of the owners’ home. Their offerings were so popular that the couple decided to go open up their own storefront after 10 years of running their business in their home. District Modern opened in April 2014 at their new prime location in the East Village Art District of Long Beach.
4. The Feed Store
Visit The Feed Store with an open heart and mind. The shop, located on Long Beach’s Retro Row, is an extension of a non-profit organization called Grateful Hearts. All proceeds go towards helping those in need, providing them with living essentials. The store offers new and second-hand clothing, accessories, books, vinyl records, home accent pieces and some furniture. The décor and furniture selection at the shop encompasses many styles and so finding a particular piece may be difficult. Still, it is a fun, trendy shop with unique items and a good mission.
5. Warehouse 1333
From MCM lighting to Danish dining chairs, Warehouse 1333 has your mid-century needs covered. Offering a true thrift store experience, visiting this shop will require some patience if you are looking for a particular piece. However, the shop is great for aimless browsing. The selection is vast and includes items from many different eras. Warehouse 1333 also offers reupholstering and refinishing services in which you can either bring in your own furniture in need of an update or pick out an old relic from the store’s “bone yard”. You can find many ecstatic reviews for these services on the shop’s Yelp page.
