“Is it possible to be a Senior Citizen and a Hipster too?” Answer: Yes it is in this little vibrant City of Lake Worth!


How does one get started on the road to
becoming a Hipster Senior Citizen?


It all starts with shopping at World Thrift. Each and every Wednesday is Senior Citizen Day. World Thrift is where the discerning shopper shops for clothing, fashion and style at exceptionally low prices.

The location, hours, and more information is below.

By the way, have you seen the new signage at World Thrift? Spectacular! That section of Dixie Hwy. is all lit up at night now and beautifully maintained.


Have you noticed how cool and hip all the Senior Citizens look nowadays in the L-Dub?


Do you recall that now famous headline published in The Palm Beach Post, “WELCOME TO THE L-DUB”?

So. Are you a Senior Citizen? Did you know the City of Lake Worth 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 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!


Hipster fashion also includes versions such as the Sublimely Hip as shown in the image below.

If you were hip in the 1960s and 1970s why not be Sublimely Hip in the modern era here in
the Hipster L-Dub?


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 Hipsters, Millennials, and Senior Citizens!


Following wave after wave of good news coming from our little City of Lake Worth, 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” (aka, ‘gentrification’) 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 everyone else not quite enamored
with the Anarchist lifestyle. . .

Do you want to stand out? Make yourself noticed? Be a Hipster! By strict definition a Hipster is born about 1980, and is attracted to up-and-coming cities: that’s Lake Worth, Florida! But what many people don’t know is there was another Hipster era back in the 1960s–1970s as well and those former youngsters are the Senior Citizens of today. If you were hip then why not be hip now?

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: is the Traditional Hipster really hip and why do they all seem to look alike? Or are Traditional Hipsters really raging non-conformists who have all conformed? That’s exactly what makes World Thrift so special. There are so many Hipster fashions and styles to choose from! Be an L-Dub Hipster, not the typical Traditional Hipster:




There are other options as well. You can take the traditional path of Anarchy like the Anarchist Millennials in the L-Dub:

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’ whilst you are in town.
