Best Thrift Shop in East L.A. Los Angeles 2012 

Society of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store

Located in Lincoln Heights, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is a 90,000-square-foot warehouse of top-notch "vintage" and used goodies: clothes by Vera Wang and Levi's, vintage women's and men's shoes, bookcases, draperies, linens, refrigerators and more. The beauty about this place is that while you're saving money on quality stuff, your dollars go to the homeless, the poor and other people in need. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international organization run by lay Catholics; it has operated in Los Angeles for more than 100 years. We love its guiding motto: "No act of charity is foreign to the Society." 210 N. Avenue 21, Lincoln Heights. (323) 224-6280, svdpla.org.

    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
