Laura Sturza Shoppers hunting for gold leather bell bottoms from NBC's wardrobe department, faux "Monopoly"-printed jeans hailing from the Warner Bros. lot or a Tommy Bahama silk jacket worn on "CSI: Miami" need look no further. These items all sell for about 50% off retail prices at "it's a Wrap!" -- which consigns clothes from major East and West Coast studios. But the allure of wearing a dress from the back of "Charmed" star Rose McGowan is not what pulls most shoppers into the store at 3315 W. Magnolia Blvd.

Despite many a mother’s wish, no child stays little forever. Children grow up fast, and Aura Veliz, owner of Wear it Once, Wear it Twice on West Verdugo Avenue, is taking advantage of the adage. Her used clothing boutique, which opened on Nov. 16, carries only children’s garments, an idea that has been brewing in Veliz’s head for years. “Well, my whole life I have been around kids,” she said. “And I could see the kids grow so fast, and they leave the clothes in good condition.

WEST BURBANK — A Bloomingdale's sales assistant who made children's clothes for her granddaughter in her spare time is now set to see her designs featured at the upscale store where she works. The development is a dramatic reversal of fortunes for Linda Legorreta, 43, who said she didn't know where the next meal was coming from just 18 months ago. It was low point for someone who had owned two women's clothing stores with 16 employees. But her monthly lease exposed her business to a decision to tear down the shopping center.

ANNE LOUISE Maybe it's me ... but why is doing the laundry such a problem? Now I know some of you are thinking, "How can she write an entire article on laundry?" Quite honestly, I didn't think I could. But look, here it is, so let's just go with it. In theory, washing clothes is a simple and fairly easy process. Put the clothes in the washer. Add soap. Turn on the washer. Walk away (I love that part). Then, you come back whenever you want, but hopefully before it starts to smell like a family of chipmunks drowned in there.

Ryan Carter When Patricia Hackett was looking for a name for her new children's clothing business on Magnolia Boulevard, she didn't have to go far. Hackett was always into colorful clothes, and said she used to playfully call her now 12-year-old daughter, Jessica, a "spoiled brat." And just like that, Spoiled Bratz -- home to colorful clothes and accessories for children -- was born. Hackett opened the business in July and has found that her 600-square-foot store -- full of Hello Kitty backpacks, trendy, casual and dressy clothing for girls and boys, accessories, and toys -- has attracted a fairly healthy volume of foot traffic since it opened.

For most Southern Californians, shopping for designer clothing and accessories, vintage and celebrity-owned jewelry, or unique collectibles and furniture would entail a heavily cash-or-credit-card-fortified trip to the Golden Triangle of Beverly Hills or the eclectic mix of shops that pepper L.A.'s West Side shopping districts on Beverly Boulevard and Melrose Avenue. For Burbankers (along with in-the-know visitors), a West Side trek for the aforementioned treasures at jet-set prices can be avoided by simply visiting the La Providencia Guild of Children's Hospital Los Angeles Thrift Shop on the corner of W. Burbank Boulevard and N. California Street.
