May 27th, 2019 | Fashion
New York has a great antidote for life: shopping! This time, we want to talk about vintage stores. Sure, we all love the latest trends, but a true fashionista knows that timeless pieces and the right accessories from another decade can make an outfit. Take a look at the best stores in New York to find such hidden gems.
With the increased popularity in vintage clothing and accessories, most people are learning that second-hand doesn’t have to mean dirty, torn and cheap. If you’re looking for items from the past 50 or so years by luxury and mid-range designers, head to any of these stores.

Consignment stores work differently from vintage stores. In this type of establishments, the profits are divided between the shop owners and the clothes owner. This means that the collections are more selective and may include current and barely-worn items. This, of course, also means that the prices are much higher.

Perfect for: Curated collections of designer clothing, shoes, accessories, and select vintage.
