Road Trippin’: A Guide to Vintage Clothing Stores

A guide to some of the best vintage clothing stores that I have discovered throughout the United States and a few in Europe.

Updated June 2020

Aside from eBay, Etsy, and the occasional vintage clothing fair, I source most of my vintage clothing finds from the honey holes I’ve discovered over the years, locally and through my travels.

Below is a directory of my favorite vintage clothing and thrift stores that I have shopped in the past, and continue to frequent whenever I find myself in the area.  If you’re a vintage collector, I encourage you to stop by any of these shops to see what they have to offer.
