The Best Places To Vintage Shop (According To Our Style Crushes)

Out with the new, in with the old.

I’ve been into vintage shopping since day dot. The history and the quality of the garments, along with the guaranteed originality of your finds, just tickles my fancy. I find it super bloody fun to hunt for goodies, whether that’s at a curated IRL or online vintage shop or a thrift store.

I recently found myself hankering for a good vintage buy, so decided to take a trip back through our #STREET365 archives to see what advice I could find on the matter. Turns out we’re overflowing with hot tips, suggestions and advice on this V.I.P matter from our favourite ladiez, so thought it my duty to create a lil’ list of places to go to fulfil all your vintage shopping desires. 

Get ready to find some gems below!

“Purple 22 has the best vintage in Sydney. Poppy, the owner—who also reads fortunes in a room out back—is exemplar at finding items no-one else does: campy circus costumes, floor-length coloured leather, early 2000s denim.”
