Top 10 Bargain Sources for 2017

By Kevin O'Connor

Another year gone and well over 60 new hot bargain places reviewed. Here’s the best of the best:

10. Design Within Reach Outlet
1885 E. Ventura Blvd, Oxnard, CA 93036
(805) 278-6994

Love Mid Century iconic design and quality furniture? Then you obviously love Design Within Reach. You don’t have to pay full retail if you take a drive up to Oxnard where the only West Coast outlet for Design Within Reach is.

Here you’ll save 25%-70% on showroom floor models, overstock, customer returns and scratch and den pieces.
So worth the drive for Mid Century enthusiasts!

9. Costless Wholesale
1403 E. Lambert Rd., Suite F|
La Habra, CA 90631
(562) 697-3573

Let’s face it, life can be expensive.  But it doesn’t have to be as expensive if you know about Costless Wholesale in La Habra.

This reasonably well-organized outlet store sells household items, electronics, housewares, clothing, furniture, accessories, garden and more at 15%-60% below original retail. Liquidating salvaged items, cancelled orders, customer returns and shelf pulls from Costco, Target, Macy’s and Manufacturers, there is a mirage of items here to shop.

8. Cal Climate
(818) 843-51881

When 3 local handy man / plumbers all say that a business I recommend is the best with low pricing and quality work. I take notice and you should too!

Cal Climate is family owned and operated.  Since 1970 Cal Climate being doing commercial and residential new HVAC installs and servicing. They’re also an Authorized Lennox Dealer. They service both the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys from North Hills to Monrovia.

I want experienced contractors who are the best at what they do, are honest and thorough. Cal Climate proved to be just that and more at a very reasonable low cost.

7. Walker Viden Luxury Consignment
1033 E. Green Street
Pasadena, CA 91106
626-844-9244

This charmingly sophisticated resale shop carries the very best women’s designer brands at 50%-75% off original retail. But it’s the owners, Jennie Walker and Addy Viden educated eye for quality and design that really sets this resale shop apart from most. It’s one of the best curated designer resale shops I have ever been in. That’s probably because they love what they do and have been fashion hounds for decades.

Their keen eye is evident in the well edited selection.  I spotted Ungaro, Phillip Lim, Rodarte, Gucci, Prada, Chloe, Chanel, Valentino, Balenciaga, Marc Jacob, Missoni, Miu Miu, Donna Karan, St John,  Marni, Loubotin, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gautier, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Celine and more.

Walker Viden is the great example of what a resale boutique should be.

6. Charrisse Consign Design
23461 Ridge Rte Dr.
Laguna Hills, CA 92653    
(949) 228-1652

As a fan of Used, Antique and Consignment Furniture stores, I have researched just about every kind of store there is out there, from the down and dirty dregs to stellar design houses.

I can say that Charrisse Consign Design in Laguna Hills is up there with the best of the best in all of California.

Located on, but just behind “Furniture Row”, this nice sized store at 10,000 sq ft, is well organized, well stocked, well priced, offers design, full service and has a welcoming friendly atmosphere with everything from used antique and modern designer pieces to new manufacturer closeouts at 20%-60% below original retail.

5. TR Trading Company 
15604 S. Broadway St.
Gardena, CA 90248
(310) 329-9242

Setting up a new business or office? Need chairs, desks, tables, file cabinets, and more for your office. Then look no further than TR Trading Company.

Their huge, 85,000 sq. ft. group of warehouses has a massive selection of used and new desks, chairs, file cabinets, work stations, specialized tables, utility carts, cabinets, bookcases, lobby furniture, equipment, supplies and more at 35%-70% less than retail.

4. On Que Style Outlet CLOSED
17751 Sky Park Circle #H
Irvine, CA 92614
(949) 527-6959

I thought I’d seen just about every kind of women’s resale boutique out there. But up to now I had never seen an outlet for one.  Yes, I said “Outlet”.

Hidden in a business park in Irvine, with little to no signage, is where On Que Style clears out past seasons items that didn’t sell or move fast enough at the regular store at additional discounts of 50%-90% off…. That right. I said ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS! Discounts on the discounts!

Some Rag & Bone Skinny jeans that retailed at $200, were $100 at the CDM store but are $25 here. An Emilio Pucci blouse retailed at $600, was $295 at the CDM store, but is here at $29.50…. a 95% savings. A gem for the fashion savvy bargain shopper.


3. HDTV Outlet
1934 E. Colorado Blvd.
Pasadena, CA 91107  
(626) 559-3514

The HDTV Outlet sells, new scratch & dent, display, Out of Box, customer returns, past seasons, discontinued models and overstock TV’s from Costco & Sam’s Club. Yes, the prices here are a great deal lower than Costco, Sam’s Club and Amazon.
Completely gone over and refurbished if needed, you can save 30%-70% !

2. Off Price DLM
5015 District Blvd.
Vernon, CA 90058
(323) 277-2777

DLM Off Price has been resurrected as Off Price DLM at Designers Fabrics Warehouse.

1. New Life Cardio Equipment
2438 E. 55th St.
Los Angeles, CA 90058
(310) 482-0666

New Life Cardio Equipment. The owner, Mike, buys new and used equipment and resells it at 50%-75% less than retail to the public. There are dozens upon dozens of choices here.

Having been in the fitness biz for years, Mike developed contacts at all the manufacturers that sell him the new equipment that had been shown at trade shows. He also has connections with gyms and hotels where he buys up their old equipment.  Both are sold her at much less than retail. Sweet!
