Meet Fashion Expert, Patty Barba
Her TikTok account, StilletosandSinCity, has over 23k followers and more than 450k likes. When it comes to shopping, her business background plays a big role. She owned a brick and mortar fashion boutique for 10 years, but quickly adapted her business into an online shop when it became popular. Another trend she picked up on was reselling items. Through her social media channels, she offers shopping advice, reselling info, life hacks, DIY tips and much more.
If you love a good deal, here’s four amazing Las Vegas thrift stores recommended by Barba
- The Habitat for Humanity Restore
When they make homes for the needy, whatever they don’t use ends up here. In this shop, you can find great prices on furniture, building materials, paint, lighting fixtures and so much more. Besides getting great deals, you are also helping a great cause. The Habitat Restore recycles and salvages revenue, then sells them at discounted prices. Their non-profit stores give people in the community training and employment opportunities.
- Macy’s Backstage
This is a clearance store with great sales. They have products from all their different departments, but just a smaller selection. In her TikTok video, she shows some really cute items she found at low prices such as shoes, purses and cosmetics. If you are looking to catch some awesome holiday stuff on clearance, this is a spot you will want to check out. Barba mentions that she finds “great stuff for the home” at this thrift shop.
- Deja Blue Boutique
This is a Goodwill store that sells top brands for a cheaper price. The prices are more expensive than a regular Goodwill store, but the clothes are high quality gems. In her video, Barba shows fashion lines like Calvin Klein, Nautica and Louis Voutin sold here. Even though the prices are higher than other thrift stores, you still can find great deals. For example, she shows a Halston clothing item that the original tag said cost $395, but Deja Blue is selling it for only $25. That’s $370 cheaper. What a steal!
- Broadacres Marketplace
When Barba and her family entered the outdoor swap meet, the staff checked their temperatures and everyone followed CDC guidelines. This flea market sells used stuff on the right side, new stuff on the left side, and has an alley filled with tons of different venues to try. To enter, it only costs $1.50. However, there are many unique offers here you won’t find elsewhere. Barba mentions a booth that sells unopened packages that got lost in the mail. (I do wonder how they got those. I guess that’s a whole other mystery.) This reminds me of surprise bags which have become very popular recently. Watch the video below to see her open them!
