I finally checked out a couple of vintage and thrift stores downtown in monterey. I can promise you it was fun and not out of control as I imagined it would be. I purchased two Geoffrey Bean sweaters (score!) and this beautiful vintage beaded shirt. It reminds me of my MJ jackets that I am so dear about! I suggest that if you are looking for a unique piece that you know nobody else may have, visit a local thrift shop or vintage boutique. I actually yelped a couple of keywords and found a handful of secret shops I did not imagine I would find! Yupee sir'ee.
