If you're looking for gritty, dirty, sorta sketchy ambiance while digging for great vintage clothes, it doesn't get much better than Galeria 5Ta. This semi-outdoor, moderately sketchy mall is the antithesis of pre-selected vintage clothes with jacked-up prices. This is seriously cheap, and deals abound. Can you fit three vintage Adidas tracksuits in your luggage to go home? Because you can buy them from a cranky man for something like $5 USD. Ladies who love second-hand shopping will clean up if they go here, seeing as there is everything from boots to coats from every imaginable decade. I saw some great designer stuff, too. Just give yourself enough time to give every shop a thorough scouring--which is what you'll also be doing with like 50% of your purchases once you have access to soap and water.
