12 Apr 14X Vintage Stores in Amsterdam you must check out
Vintage is hot and we love it! First of all, it’s sustainable, and such a great excuse to wear something that was also cool a few seasons ago. Let’s check out the 14 best vintage stores in Amsterdam at the moment.
The Thriftshop, Albert Cuypstraat 187
The new kid on the blog! The Thriftshop is run by PR lady Tedje Fliers and her companion Dina El Basri. Did you know that women only use about 10% of their closets? Crazy right? Well, the main thing we love about this store, is that you can bring your clothes that are just hanging there, so you can make someone else happy with it. Whatever is sold, you get 30% from the profits! (yes, I also brought my old Levi’s!) They only opened yesterday, so all the good items are still there (but hurry).
We Are Vintage, Kinkerstraat 193 & Eerste v Swindenstraat 43
We love this store because it’s such a nice layout! You can easily spend more than an hour in this store without realising. Denim dungarees, floral dresses, cowboy boots, hats, men & women, it’s all here!
Jutka & Riska
Here they sell vintage combined with a new collection. Clever! At Jutka & Riska you will find bold and funky colours, the latest styles, and many cute accessories. They also have an online shop, which is great for the lazy shopper. There are 2 stores in Amsterdam, one in Haarlem and one in Antwerp. www.jutkaenriska.com
Episode, 4 locations in Amsterdam
This vintage store has been around for a while and has several locations in Europe from Amsterdam to Copenhagen. It’s the one vintage store in Amsterdam that everybody knows. It’s amazing to find army jackets, vintage Levi’s, tropical shirts from the eighties, and many many accessories. Find one of the 4 locations in Amsterdam on their website.
They sell some of the best trousers in our opinion! Baggy comfortable trousers you wear on a Sunday…or every day for that matter. (guilty!) Also check out their jewelry, watches, sunglasses and hats! www.zipperstore.nl
Marbles Vintage, 3 locations in Amsterdam
This store scores well with vintage lovers throughout Amsterdam. Why? Because there are real treasures to be found! Both men and women can shop here, and they have a great selection of leather handbags and shoes. They have a total of 3 locations in Amsterdam so get yourself to it!
I love Vintage, Prinsengracht 201
This retro style vintage shop is perfect for those Bettie Page summer dresses and if your looking to wear something for a special occasion. They sell all the way back from the twenties up until the eighties. Check out the online shop where you can also check if they have your favorite item in stock. Easy peasy Vintage! www.ilovevintage.com
Kilo Shop, Waterloopplein 189
Instead of buying your items at a set price, you add your items on the scale and pay per weight! This can be super affordable if you choose your items the right way. Prices are ranged in different color and style categories. The Kilo Shop imports their clothes from all over the world and sells brands from London, Paris, and Tokyo. www.kiloshop.nl
Bij Ons Vintage, Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 150 / Reestraat 13
If you want to go festival shopping, this store is your spot! Men can go crazy on tropical shirts, while the women can go for jumpsuits or cool summer dresses. New arrivals everyday! www.bijons-vintage.nl
Klein Berlijn, Middenweg 36
I used to work with the lovely owner of this cute store. She had the idea years ago, and even used her home to host a few vintage sales back then. Her cool style never seemed to fade because she’s been running Klein Berlijn ever since. Okok, the clothes are not real vintage and old, but they have a cool vintage look, and that’s why Klein Berlijn belongs in our list. www.kleinberlijn.com
Vintage For Kids
Kids grow fast AF. I know, because I’m a mother of a baby boy and don’t want to buy brand new clothes each time around. I never knew that vintage shopping for your child could be such a bargain! Sometimes I buy 4 items for just 12 euro! (and this includes jeans, jumpers, shoes and high end brands). Secondly, it’s super sustainable! Here are some of my faves;
Old West, De Clercqstraat
By far my favorite vintage clothing store for kids! The concept is great; I bring my son’s old clothes to them, they check, and you get a code. Each time when I return, they can check how much I’ve sold and use that money to buy new items in the store! They only take on clothing that is in tiptop condition and they prefer good brands like Impf & Elfs and Le Petit Batau. All the clothing is divided into size and colours, and moms and dads all over Amsterdam bring in new stuff on a daily basis. Friends Floortje and Sofie run this fantastic store that also sells some new items for a great price. www.oldwestamsterdam.nl
JunJun, De Clercqstraat 97
Situated in the same street as Old West, you can find another great vintage store for kids with the same concept. You can find clothes, toys, baby stuff, strolers, baby seats and more. www.junjun.nl
Wollepop, Bosboom Toussaintstraat 49
Another great kids store with high quality clothing, toys and children accessories. Sustainability is key here and besides the concept, they also provide led lighting and better isolation. www.wollepop.nl
Kids & Queens, Rietwijkerstraat 32
If you are looking for high end kids brands such as Vingino, DNKY, Burberry, Tumble & Dry, you should definitely visit Kids & Queens. Their sizes go from 50cm until 140cm. Prices are (understandably) a bit higher than the above mentioned kids vintage stores in Amsterdam, but nevertheless, it’s nice to spoil you’re kid now and then! www.kidsandqueens.nl
Enjoy your shopping peeps!
