These days the 35-plus-year-old store is more trendy-garb surplus than army surplus. The sprawling two-story shop purveys studded skateboards, party dresses, hoodies and backpacks, but the hidden secret is the extensive thrift and vintage section on the top floor.

Everything's affordable here, and understandably so. Most of the items in this Lakeview shop are crappy. Go to Ragstock.

This is undoubtedly my favorite place to grab military surplus items. They aren't necessarily the cheapest, but they are definitely quality. I'd recommend stopping by before going on a camping trip. They might just have everything you need.
