BEST OF: Vintage Shopping in NYC & Brooklyn

Many professional stylists and shoppers say that NYC  has some of the best vintage shopping and we tend to agree. Yes, you have to spend a little more time hunting, but it’s so worth it when you find those special pieces! Here are our favorite vintage shops in NYC & Brooklyn.

Don’t forget that our very own tour guide, who is also a Sustainable Fashion Designer and life long New Yorker, leads several great fashion tours where you can shop these spots!

Awoke Vintage Brooklyn

Awoke Vintage (Williamsburg & Greenpoint)

Not too expensive and not too cheap – they are right in that sweet spot and have tons of amazing finds for every style and occasion. You can also shop them online at shop thrilling.com. Or on our Sustainable Brooklyn Food & Fashion Tour!

Crossroads Trading (Williamsburg, Brooklyn) 135 N 7th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249

This is where some of us personally trade in clothing, so it stands to reason that we never walk out of this store without finding something pre-loved that we can’t live without.

 

Beacon’s Closet – multiple locations (Manhattan & Brooklyn)

One of the more famous vintage store brands in NYC & Brooklyn. The stores are generally large and they’ve got something for everyone.
