Best Women's Clothing Swap Shop (2013)

Give + Take

Tired of last summer's lacy frock? You could blow a paycheck on a new one at the mall. Or you could trade the old one for a new one — or flower-print jeans, or strappy teal sandals, or a lacy black dress — at Give + Take. Located on a pleasant retail strip of Ocean Park Boulevard in Santa Monica, Give + Take bills itself as a "swap shop" with a fast-flipping inventory of cute and stylish women's apparel. Shoppers pay $30 a month for membership, but otherwise, clothes are the only currency. The cuter the clothes you ditch, the more trading points you earn — and you can keep the new loot or trade it again the next day. It's a way to save money, co-owner Celina Burns says, and save the environment to boot. 1740 Ocean Park Blvd., Santa Monica, 90405. —Daina Beth Solomon
