This week in our print edition and online we celebrate all things previously owned. Short on money, buyers and sellers are starting to look to consignment as a more financially friendly way to furnish homes and unload old stuff. Valli Herman tells you how it's done. We also tagged along with "Mad Men" set decorator Amy Wells as she made the rounds of her favorite Pasadena vintage stores and convinced her to give us a list of the best places in SoCal to look for deals. (It's a very complete list. I recommend clicking, printing and keeping in the car for spontaneous excursions). For flea market lovers, our talented and efficient intern Kelsey Ramos dug into our archives to unearth a sampling of past flea market coverage, including an interview with Todd Oldham and a tour of the Pasadena Rose Bowl market. And in case you'd rather shop from your cubicle during office hours (something we never do ourselves) our style scout David Keeps has scoured the Web for the best online vintage shopping sites, and even pointed out some of the coolest stuff currently on sale. Happy hunting!
