I mentioned Monday that I’m traveling all week, and one of my favorite things about visiting other parts of the country is checking out the different vintage shops that many cities have to offer. I can rarely resist stopping at the local thrift stores no matter where I am, and love picking out unique vintage finds that remind me of each trip.
Unfortunately, I never seem to have quite as much luck shopping for vintage in NYC, and if you happen to feel the same way or just get overwhelmed at the thought of over-packed racks, confusing sizes & the occasional funky smell – I’ve got a few online shopping suggestions that could hopefully make your hunt a bit more of a breeze.
- Adored Vintage // Possibly one of the most incredible selections of vintage I’ve ever seen, AV owner Rodalee Bas is not only a gifted shop curator, but is also one of the biggest sweethearts ever. Her knowledge of vintage clothing goes far beyond anyone I’ve ever met, and the lookbooks that she styles from the pieces on her site are beyond stunning.
- Market Publique // The inventory here is comprised of collections from many different independent sellers, and the auction-style format is perfect for both eBay lovers, and those who are perpetually in search of a great deal.
- Nifty Thrifty // This particular shop is one of the newer kids on the block, and is actually more of a mixture of vintage and secondhand pieces. They launched just a handful of months ago, and have adopted the flash-sale site model, which seems to keep things fresh and interesting with ever-rotating themes and merchandise.
- Beacon’s Closet // In addition to the three locations in NYC (I sell my goodies at the Union Square shop!), Beacon’s also happens to have a handy online shop for those who live out of the area. The nerdy-vintage-hound in me especially loves following them on instragram to see some of the amazing garment tags that they find on the treasures that cycle through their stores.
This round-up wouldn’t be complete without mentioning a few others I love to frequent, including… Maeven, Gary Pepper Vintage, and The Greedy Seagull, and so many more***. Check out the wares of these lovely ladies and get ready for some seriously gorgeous eye candy (and maybe a little shopping) for your mid-week morning!
