Vintage Shopping in Philadelphia: My Top 3

3 Awesome Places to Shop for Vintage in Philadelphia

I adore Philadelphia! I love history, good food and vintage shopping. Philly is one of those cities that fulfills all the things I look for when traveling. I've been going to Philly since I was a teenager and have totally done all the touristy things. Now when I visit I want to go where the locals eat and hang out. I also want to shop like a local. 

When I first starting blogging my Philly trips were like scavenger hunts when it came to finding vintage stores. I was told there was some really awesome vintage shopping in Philadelphia but where were the stores? I read every article on vintage shopping in Philly that I had Googled but when I showed up to most of the stores they had moved or closed down forever. 
After a few frustrating hours of not finding any vintage shops I finally discovered one and then two others nearby. I love it when vintage stores are close to each other. Don't you?? Check out my favorite three places to vintage shop in Philadelphia below. I'll explore more vintage shops on my next trip to Philly!! 



Sazz Vintage

I'm so in love with Sazz Vintage. Where do I begin?! The selection is amazing with something for everyone with pieces from the 1940's through the 80's, the prices are super affordable and the owner, Amanda, is beyond friendly and helpful. I remember browsing the amazing vintage goodies at Sazz Vintage years ago when they were in Old City. The store was so good and stuck in my mind. I was so relieved to find them in their new location in the Bella Vista/South Street District.

Retrospect

I'll never forget shopping in Retrospect ages ago when I was so curious about vintage fashion but had no idea of how to shop for it. I remember being amazing at how cool the store was. I was in love with all the vintage clothes, accessories, housewares and furniture. I'm a sucker for vintage home decor by the way. It's owned and ran by Goodwill Industries and is well curated with some of the best vintage pieces around at the best prices ever. And if vintage furniture and home decor is your thing, you'll especially love Retrospect.

Philly AIDS Thrift

I began my love affair with Philly AIDS Thrift last August when I luckily stumbled upon it with some help from Google. I'm not usually the thrift shopper mostly because I hate digging and looking for vintage. But Philly AIDS Thrift has a Vintage Room which helps take the guess work out of what's vintage or just thrift. I have to admit that it's a little messy but it's so fun to shop in and I love that it's for a good cause! Here's the $20 vintage dress I scored from Philly AIDS's Thrift last summer. It was the best vintage score ever! I love this dress.
