Aaardvark's was once a great place. The owner passed away and the new owner is a total crook. The reason that the employees don't give a f@*# is that they are not being paid. I worked here and ALL of my paychecks bounced. The owner was so negligent that he didn't pay the phone bill and so we couldn't use the credit card machine. Some employees stick around, stealing money from the register and stealing clothes until they find another job. The store is dirty because no one cares. The owner has group interviews, sees how many people show up, then probably bets on getting at least 2 weeks out of everyone he won't pay.This store is closed down now, as is the Venice one. The Pasadena one reopened, closed, and then moved. Do the vintage clothing community a favor and support people and businesses who really care--and pay their employees!

Aaardvarks has now moved to Monrovia. Wish they would stop having to move all the time. But yes I just went buy there today 6/1/10 the store is all ready to go but they were closed so I'm sure they will be open any day now. They are located on Myrtle Ave. north of Lemon. I love that store and I'm glad I don't have to drive that far to go to it.

Where did aaardvarks move to?????! I feel lik they've moved all over. And I can't seem to find the info online and the number that's given is disconnected. There's also a sign in Monrovia saying that there's an aaardvarks coming soon. And j can't find any info on it

Aaardvarks's is a fun store with a lot of unique items. However, the people who work there are most unfriendly and disinterested in their customers. Also, they do sell damaged clothing "as is" without discounting their all ready over-inflated prices.

This place is great for people that want to dress up from the 50's-70's. I found a lot of good ideas and bought my 70's costume for a party. The prices may seem high but the material isn't the same as buying a hollween costume from this stores, at least when you buy from here your quality is worth every penny. Consider it as I have done and trust me, I've been from goodwill stores to swapmeet and this place is the place for your last stop to search. It was an experience.

I should start by saying that I am a thrift/vintage store junkie. Aaardvark's Odd Ark was quite the recommendation and is an amazing store to peruse. I had to find a costume for my part in "My Fair Lady" and I thought it was going to be tough considering that the period dress is specific, but Aaadvark's had it.
The elaborate COSTUME dresses run from $15 to $30 (and ooh the variety). Other dresses like wedding, prom, and more current dresses run higher. The regular clothes is pretty inexpensive, I saw some t-shirts for $2! The wigs are pricey though :(. It is clean and it doesn't smell like your average thrift store.

*NOTE: Terrible costumer service. Some of the rudest and "I don't have to help you because I'm cool because I work here" attitude.*

Pros: Parking is good

Cons: The employees are awful

Good place for used clothing or accessories for a Halloween costume. Prices seem a bit high but much cheaper than new clothing. It is right on Colorado Blvd, you can't miss the store.

Aaardvarks ahs a wide selection of vintage clothing, funky, elegant and classical. The store is well organized and well stocked. I do question its cleanliness. The staff are helpful but appear uninterested n the customers. Prices can vary but for the most part are a bit on the high end for being a thrift store.

PROS: Lots of cool clothes
CONS: Prices can be on the high end

This vintage store is really big with a huge selection of clothing from men's vintage suits and ties to vintage mumus for women. It's the perfect place to find a costume or that perfect vintage bowling shirt in navy and white pinstripe.

This store has plenty of random vintage clothes that you can put together for a theme party or halloween. I like how they have wigs, jewelry, and funky hats to add to any outfit. The prices are a little high for thirft store clothes, but they have suck a huge selection that it's worth coming here.

I thought vintage type stores were suppose to be somewhat vintage in their prices. Aardvarks prices are a bit too presently high for my taste. I can usually find something Im looking for though and they have a huge selection of alot of different things.The staff must get paid those vintage wages because they arent all that friendly.

I would consider Aardvark's to be considerable above average for a vintage clothing shop. Aardvarks usually does not accept damaged clothing, and you might consider its offerings to be trendy. An entire room is devoted to blue jeans from different eras and trends; the jeans, like all sections of the store, are neatly organized and well-presented. Like all vintage or thrift shops, you will have good days and bad days, but I find something interesting about 50% of the time I shop here. I have found premium scarves and neat t-shirts; others might like the hats or jewelry. The prices are a wee bit high for a used clothing shop; I paid $15 for a scarf later saw for $10 on ebay. Nonetheless, I don't mind paying a little more for a neat and well-presented shop.

Aardvark's is one of the better vintage/thrift stores in town. At the Salvation Army you have to sift through a lot of junk and maybe if you're lucky you'll find something good. Of course, it's also cheap. Aardvark's, by contrast, has much better merchandise but also charges more. Great variety of clothes items. Also a good place to buy a Halloween costume (but go early... as Halloween draws near this store gets really crowded).

I thought this was an average thrift store. They had some really awesome stuff, but mostly just really ugly and/or old clothes. I thought their prices were a bit steep for the quality sometimes. I also can't stand the smell of a thrift shop, and this one seemed particularly pungent. Their dressing rooms left a little to be desired. I don't plan on going back, but if thrifting is your thing, this might be the place for you.

Honestly, the clothes here aren't attractive. But the main thing that gets on my nerves is the fact that they totally jack up the prices on this stuff. I know it's vintage but hey, I can walk into a Salvation Army or Goodwill and find something similar for waaay cheaper. Who wants to pay more than full price for some old, outdated, and used stuff?

A cross between Goodwill and Diesel, this is a great shop for interesting, unique pieces. Some have been re-worked while others are just as they were delivered. Look for a good range of Hawaiian shirts for men and plaid skirts for women.
