Our mission is to revolutionize the way people shop. Whether you realize it or not,

thrifters support a cleaner Earth through buying & trading recycled items & clothing! 


We believe in:

conscious consumerism & affordable fashion.

BEING PART OF SOMETHING WITH A CAUSE.

commitment to music & culture. 

Reduce. Reuse. Rock on!
 

Ever since Thrift Trader's journey began in 2008, we've been continuously buying and trading name brand clothes, loads of vinyl music, and movies. Our Founder/Owner, Jeff Clark, also began the unique vision of Music Trader back in 1987, with 16 successful stores. He has now transformed his concept into music and fashion combined, hence the name, Thrift Trader. We currently have two locations in North Park and Pacific Beach.
