Anyone who has sold clothing at one of Crossroads Trading Co.'s stores knows one thing: Those buyers are picky. But when they select your unworn Free People cardigan out of a giant black plastic garbage bag and attach a security tag with a satisfactory click, you know you've got hip taste. Thanks to its highly selective process, the chain store offers brands ranging from Anthropologie to Levi's to Anna Sui, with plenty of American Apparel hoodies tucked into the mix. And while Crossroads employees may be picky, they sure do pack this emporium of apparel full; a patient shopper can easily spend hours browsing through the dozens of racks for the perfect pullover or purse. The overload of options can make any downtrodden student or young professional look seemingly put together, and the price tags won't keep you up at night.
