Best Second-hand Clothing Store (2013)
402 Lighthouse Ave., Monterey
Plato’s Closet ranks first on secondhand shopping. Brands like Fossil, Old Navy, Forever 21, LeSport and Kiplinger hang in a rainbow of colors around the store. Visiting fashonistas swoop in, trade clothes for cash and easily find casual or dress jackets, green or blue jeans, summer or spring dresses, dancing shirts or classic T-shirts, sunglasses, necklaces or bracelets. This place can make it fun to redo a wardrobe or make a quick shop stop.
