New York City Vintage Shopping Guide

Many of my style posts are combinations of new and vintage pieces, and since vintage items are often one of a kind I thought it would be fun to talk about my favorite shopping spots where I like to collect my pre-loved items! This week I will be sharing my favorite vintage shops from New York City, Dallas/Austin and Los Angeles. First up is NYC, my current home. This city is not only a hotspot for vintage collectables, but it also houses some of the best designer archives which I have been fortunate enough to visit for work.

1. Chelsea Flea Market // West 25th Street at 6th Avenue
If you love sifting through endless boxes of buttons, brooches and baubles this is where it's at! One of my favorite places to get lost in, this weekend flea market is located inside a multi floor parking garage. The best finds I have come across include labels like Chanel, Geoffery Beene and Versace.    

2. What Goes Around Comes Around // 351 West Broadway
The infamous vintage shop to the stars, this place literally has it all. This Soho boutique could also pass for a Chanel museum, their stunning collection is the best I have ever come across, definitely the place to go if you are looking for rare and collectable Chanel jewelry. With other brands like Hermes, Emilio Pucci, Comme des Garcons, Louis Vuitton and many more it is impossible to not find something worth investing in.

3. Stella Dallas // 218 Thompson Street
This sweet little shop is nestled into the small streets surrounding Washington Square Park. Filled with petticoats, vintage lingerie and dresses from the 1950's it feels just like walking into a doll's closet.

4. Brooklyn Flea // Check Website for Current Location
This flea market is the perfect spot for a full day of thrifting, and with over 30 food stands it also makes it delicious. Here you will find numerous vendors selling anything and everything from clothing, furniture, jewelry, art and knick-knacks. 

5. Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show // 125 West 18th Street
This special vintage show gathers the best shops from across the country a couple times each year. (Check website for calendar dates to plan your visit!)
