I'm looking for information on rag houses in the Los Angeles area. Can anyone help me out?

Basically these are warehouses filled with 100-pound bales of T-shirts, polo shirts and more, stacked to the ceiling and earmarked for shipment to countries such as Mexico, India and Bolivia.

oh god… There is a lady who did photographs of those and followed them to are what happened to them that I met… If I can find her number I’ll give her a ring and ask.

That would be great. From what it seems, this info tends to be somewhat coveted. You almost have to know someone. I wonder what the photos were like. I’ve heard those places can be very unpleasant, with massive amounts of dust, even ticks at times.

Also mold, mildew, dust mites (bring a magnifying glass and tweezers for the tick issue.)

So I hear, yikes! I better come armed with a mask.

I’m selling vintage clothing and my hunger for new and unique items has nearly exceeded what flea markets, estate sales, and thrift stores can provide.
