If your into vintage I'd say try a thrift store or Etsy, I love old looking things, porcelain and glassware, but I would definitely try Etsy because you can find a lot on there from the old-fashioned to modern design.
Target... Oh no, don't get me started on that place.
You can't believe how many old ladies and Muslim women I see there every day. It's like heaven for these folks.
It's way too expensive to shop there though... for anything. Especially clothing. The only time I buy anything there is when it's on clearance, or if I seriously will fork over an arm and a leg for something dumb. But I end up buying lots of things from there because of convenience (SADLY), not because I just decide go to spend my money at "Tar-jey." I'm not going to spend $20 for a sweater when I can go to Walmart and buy it for $7.
Anyways, most of all I love shopping at the local thrift shops for cute, one-of-a-kind trinkets for the low lows. Especially Christmas or Easter decor, or simple everyday things. <3 Frames, wall art, teacups with embroidery, little gems that remind you you're home... You should try supporting your local businesses too.
