The Best Vintage Stores To Follow On Instagram

best vintage stores

A treasure trove of pre-loved buys.

My search for the best vintage stores began as a spring chicken growing up in a small town on Australia’s sunny east coast. In lieu of any clothing store options beyond Suprè and surf shops, I was forced to get creative when feeding my burgeoning shopping addiction. And so, each weekend, me and best friend would pile into her old Subaru and hit the streets in search of some pre-loved finds to call our own.

The reasons why I prefer to shop second-hand over new have largely remained the same to this day. There’s no greater thrill than finding an on-trend piece or a unique buy for less than the cost of lunch, it’s fun, and it’s a more much sustainable way to fatten up your wardrobe. Also, it tickles me to imagine the different lives my clothes have lived. Did I mention how good it is for the environment?

Since I’m still living like it’s 2005 (by doing the bulk of my thrift shopping IRL), I leaned on my Insta-savvy cohort Georgie to help curate the below list of the best vintage stores on Instagram.

Fall into a fun, cheap gem-studded vortex below (while you patiently wait for Julie Blichfeld’s hotly-anticipated @_collect23 to launch)…

Jerome Vintage

Some of our fave style comes straight from Copenhagen. Makes sense then that this should top the list as one of the best vintage stores on Instagram, with its fine selection of jumpsuits, Yves Saint Laurent blazers and cute in-between season appropriate dresses.

CBN vintage

Summer (in the southern hemi) just got a whole lot better, thanks to CBN Vintage. Model Caroline Brasch Nielsen’s store is full of fun treasures, that you would normally spend hours digging for at your local thrift store. It’s also making us want to burn our monochromatic work wardrobes, and start afresh with multicoloured gingham seersucker jackets and silk blazers.

The Break

The Break is the most aesthetically-pleasing brain break for your work day, not to mention the coolest store on Instagram. There’s silk midi skirts, there’s pastel suits and there’s a whole lotta cute girls on there doing them justice.

Coco Store

If you’re ever in Melbourne, it’s 10/10 recommended that you pop into the physical Coco store in Fitzroy. ‘Tis beautiful. If not, you can still shop up a storm via their Instagram stories and feed.

Lucia Zolea

Oooooft, Lucia Zolea is the prettiest store to ever exist (in our humble opinion). Replete with sheer dresses and blouses, multicoloured knits, and oversized blazers for every occasion, you’re guaranteed to feel like a fancier version of yourself just from scrolling through their feed.
