Vintage-loving blogger for My Vintage Love and native Oregonian who's been collecting 30s-50s clothing and accessories for more than 20 years.
The most wonderful, whimsical and beautiful vintage jewelry store, perfectly curated by the sweetest couple, Thea and Nico. They have a great eye and every single piece is a great find. Nico can do custom engraving and repairs as well. I would buy everything in here if I could!
The granddaddy of them all, and still the best. I've been going to this show for more than a decade and have found some of my most amazing, and most loved pieces here. Dealers come from all over the U.S. and prices aren't cheap, so be prepared to spend, but you'll find clothing, hats and accessories you won't find anywhere else. Everything from the 1900s-1990s.
A tiny gem of a store in the East Village. It's a super well-curated collection and priced accordingly. The bulk of the pieces are from the 30s-60s and in great condition. Very fun to stop by and peruse the racks to try on the beautiful pieces.
The mecca for men's vintage in NYC. Super well-curated but plentiful men's vintage clothing, accessories and ephemera. The owner has an amazing eye and every piece is impeccable. If you're looking for men's vintage, this is the place to go!
A hole-in-the-wall vintage store that is probably one of the oldest vintage stores in NYC. This place has a little bit of everything from all kinds of eras, but definitely skews 50s and newer. It's a bit jumbled, but worth it to dig around a bit through all the hats, shoes, accessories and clothes. Tip: There's a rack all the way at the back, right next to the very overstuffed dressing room that often has some earlier pieces from the 30s and 40s, if that's your thing.
This shop is squeezed between a storage place and a Hare Krishna temple and is easy to miss, but worth a look. It's packed with all kinds of interesting clothing, hats and accessories from the 40s through the 90s, but has definitely skewed newer in the past few years.
