We are thrilled when we can grab some fancy clothes for 5 or 10 PLN in a secondhand shop or at the market. But we also admire such places which make a selection for us.
More and more vintage shops open their stationary boutiques. It means there is a demand for interesting secondhand clothes. It’s good because this way we take care of our planet and we don’t constantly buy new clothes in retail chain shops.
1. SAFRIPSTI RULES
Oleandrów St 3, www.safripsti.com
A shop with the longest tradition and the highest quality. A fine selection of clothes at affordable prices.
2. BRC VINTAGE AT NOWY ŚWIAT
Nowy Świat St 63
BRC runs a sale platform called vintagestory.pl, where everyone can put their clothes for sale. BRC organizes also vintage markets at Niebo (the next one falls on the 25th February) and now they have opened their pop-up shop at Nowy Świat Muzyki at the corner of Nowy Świat and Świętokrzyska Street (former Krytyka Polityczna). Prices aren’t low, however, clothes are extremely colourful and eye-capturing. Judging from the number of clients this place must be a success.
3. BAZAR MIEJSKI IN OLEANDRÓW
Marszałkowska St 19 (entrance from Oleandrów), www.bazarmiejski.com
We like this formula. You can rent a shelf where you put your clothes for sale. You don’t personally trade but everything is done for you by the hosts. The place is packed with clothes, accessories and different stuff. Decent prices.
4. NEW LADY IN TOWN IN CHMIELNA STREET
Chmielna St 21
It’s quite an expensive place. No wonder- its customers are actors, musicians, and tourists. A fine selection dedicated to fans of classic style as well as sports. In spring in the backyard, the shop will celebrate its 3rd birthday.
Grażyny St 1 (corner of Puławska), pl. Bankowy 4, www.wzorcownia-online.pl
Affordable prices, a wide range of products. We like digging here.
