Discerning shoppers. Taste and style. Halloween fashion, accessories. What to wear for Día de los Muertos?


It’s now officially the Fall/Winter Season. The competition is on with our returning Snowbirds for best parking spots, the best shopping spots and restaurants too.

Of course we all love the Snowbirds. It’s because of the “Snowbird Effect” we get to enjoy things all year long that the visiting Snowbird only gets to experience for a few short months. And each and every discerning Snowbird knows about a place with plenty of parking and packed with items at spectacular prices and a Tacos Al Carbon location is just a hop and a skip away.

World Thrift in L-Dub and calling all Hipster Snowbird Millennials too!”


Please Note: World Thrift is closed today. Not open on Sundays.


The BIG DAYS at World Thrift are Monday (when all the really great stuff is out) and Wednesday (Senior Citizen Day). So you’ll want to get in line early on those days. Do you like to plan ahead? The 3rd Annual Día de los Muertos in the City of Lake Worth falls on November 3rd this year!

Did you know the City of Lake Worth (aka, “LDub”) is THE ONLY “Hipster Haven” in Palm Beach County? It’s true. But there are many imitators and pretenders to the throne, e.g., West Palm Beach is one and Delray Beach is another mimic. So. What finally tipped the scale for this City of Lake Worth?

It happened when the hugely popular, trendy, and hip World Thrift opened up 3½ years ago. And things have never been the same.

World Thrift, if you didn’t know by now, is located at 2425 N. Dixie Hwy in Lake Worth, open Monday–Saturday, 9:00–6:00. Call 561-588-4050 for more information. Use this link to see some of the incredible fashion and garments available for MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

Remember, EVERY Wednesday is
Senior Citizen Day.

Following your shopping experience pack your stuff in the car and walk across the street for lunch or dinner at Tacos Al Carbon. It’s the new hot spot everybody is raving about in Central PBC and the latest stop on the Taste History Culinary Tour!

Calling All Hipster Millennial Snowbirds!


Prepare your nest in the L-Dub. The one and only Hipster Haven in all of Palm Beach County.


Following wave after wave of good news coming from our little City the philosophy of Apatharchism has firmly taken hold here. Adherents include former 60’s-style Anarchists, Millennial-Anarchists, Anarch sympathizers, and affinity members once focused only on the bad news, doom and gloom, and the “Wolf at the Door” that never appeared.

Take for example the City’s bond referendum that passed overwhelmingly in November 2016. Those few blocks of the City once occupied by Anarchists and inaccessible by pogo stick, skateboard, and unicycle will soon have new roads! Areas that already have LED street lighting, new water lines and fire hydrants, upgraded parks and Greenways is fomenting the Apatharchist rebellion. “The roads are new in Lake Worth”, the Anarchist holdouts will observe, not quite enthralled as living conditions improve all around them.

As far as all the other Millennials go, not quite enamored with the Anarchist lifestyle. . .

Are you a Millennial Hipster looking for a place that’s “up and coming”? Do you want to stand out? Make yourself noticed? By definition a Hipster is born about 1980, and is attracted to up-and-coming cities: that’s Lake Worth, Florida!

Having World Thrift located here makes all the sense in the world now. The New Times rated World Thrift one of the best thrift stores ever:


[I]t remains the only place in town to score a vintage silk kimono, a $3.99 collection of mint-condition '70s-era teen magazines, a plethora of options for the next ugly Christmas sweater party, and a White House Black Market dress with the tags still on for ten bucks, all in one afternoon.


However, the looming question remains: are Hipsters really hip and why do they all seem to look alike? Or are they really raging non-conformists who have all conformed?


There are other options as well. You can take another path like the Anarchist Millennials:

Look closely at the written instructions on how
and when to empty the poop bucket. And who
knows, you might even catch an Anarchist

musical while you’re in town.


Briefly, a short discussion about the oft-used and somewhat confusing term (or slang if you will), “L-DUB”. Other variations of the term “L-DUB” referring to the actual City of Lake Worth (not to be confused with those cookie-cutter boring western suburbs) are:

  • “L-Dub” can be used upper/lowercase; ALL CAPS is also acceptable (“L-DUB” is sometimes called the ‘Dee’ or ‘Twiddle-Dee’ variant).
  • There is the Hipster feminine, “ElleDub” [informal; Hipster male, “ElDub”].
  • “LDub”, sans the hyphen, a British (199-) variant [informal, familiar].
  • The French/European Union variant [formal, proper], “LéDûb”; used in a sentence, “C′est si bon, Mademoiselle, Monsieur en charmant LéDûb.”

An example in speech:

“Welcome to LDub fellow Snowbird! Have you been to World Thrift yet?
     It is soooooo cool and prices you won’t believe. And get this, there’s a Tacos Al Carbon L-DUB location across the street. You made the right choice picking LéDûb.
     Snowbirds dont care about Delray any more. ElleDub is where it’s at.”

Now. What are you waiting for? Head on over to World Thrift next week!
