Aaardvark's( spelled with 3 AAAs) has moved from it's oringinal location on Melrose Ave to 7566 Melrose ave. It's no longer the corner store on Melrose/ Curson to my surprise. Now it's on the south side of the street on melrose and Curson where Drake's used to be. They still carry one of a kind clothing from original 1920's-30's through the 1980's to contemporary clothing. I love this store because you can find something funky that's one of a kind. The new location is smaller, but cozy. The staff is friendly and helpful to help you find what you need. It makes for a great come back!

Now let me be fair and start off by saying, I used to shop here quite frequently and never had any serious complaints. However, on my last few trips to LA I have attempted to have a good experience shopping here but I have to finally say I will NEVER be going again.

First of all, my boyfriend accidently left his wallet there last month (his fault, I know) but what infuriated us was the fact that an employee had found the wallet which had all of our vacation money in it and lied about it to his face! This was also despite the fact other employees later told us it had been found, but never returned to us!

This was the last straw for us. Before everything else was tolerable because of their super low prices. But don't be fooled by their cheapness, you'll get a better deal at the Salvation Army and at least their clothes will be in better condition.

If you still feel up to digging through, be sure you inspect everything before you buy it!
My last time shopping here I got home only to discover all my dresses had funky water stains on them that smelled moldy even after a trip to the dry cleaners!! To top it off, only two had working zippers and the rest had various tears, stains and holes. No wonder they have a no returns no refunds policy!

I love coming here...its so much fun! It's like you go back in time, but always manage to find something cool to wear now....I have found some pretty cool things that dont look too old or wasted....and the prices are reasonable..u know how sometimes you go into a vintage/thrift store and you might as well buy something new cuz of the high price? not here, prices are good and clothing is awesome..

Aardvark's is hit or miss. You can get some unusual stuff, but a lot of the items are overpriced. A good place to go to find stuff for a costume or even for tuxedo shirts if you're a waiter.

Oh my gosh, you have to go to Aardvarks. There are more locations then the one on Melrose in West Hollywood. I have been going there for almost 35 years. They have the greatest vintage clothing at reasonable prices. You can get perfectly good DickeePants there for $10.00. Their jeans are priced really good. They even make up some of their own clothes that are totally awesome. I got my daughter a floor length black cape, fully lined, made by them for $40.00. Go there, it is worth the trip..

This is a very cool, trendy vintage shop. I love to spend hours going through the piles of jeans- they've got so many decades worth of pants here that you can find nearly all styles, colors and sizes. Most of the shirt are a bit silly but you can grabsome cool hats and ties. The employees are really laid-back and don't care if you spend all day browsing. Some things are priced higher than you would expect, but mose items are very affordable.

I used to go to this store alot! (mostly because at the time it was the only "game" in town) now that other vintage shops have opened up, I still like this place but find it a bit too pricey. so if your on melrose with some money to burn here's the store for you.

I always have a blast looking around the Venice store. You never know what you're going to find. My boyfriend now makes regular visits and has picked up everything from old western shirts to camo shorts. Who knew we'd ever see those again...
