WHERE TO SHOP FOR VINTAGE CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES
Do you love treasure hunting? Would you rather shop your grandmother’s closet than the mall for your outfits? If you enjoy looking unique and not like everyone else, then vintage shopping is for you! Shopping for amazing pieces to add to your wardrobe is exciting, fun, and challenging. When I first got started, there still were stores that sold strictly vintage clothing and accessories, but the market has changed. Although great pieces of authentic vintage can be found today, one often must scour thrift stores, consignment shops, and church charity shops, which means looking through lots of cast offs that are neither old nor desirable. At our store, Nostalgia, we have vendors who source true men’s and women’s quality vintage clothing, and they are quite experienced at knowing which eras are “hot” and, so, what the customer is looking to buy. At other antique co-ops, you may find booths or areas that contain vintage or a combination of second hand clothing and older pieces. Again, you often have to dig through or hunt for those can’t-live-without garments. But, I promise you, it’s worth it! The following tips will help you to shop wisely while in pursuit of that vintage gem!
