Starting this Monday back from what felt like an endless holiday off with my favorite places in New York City to shop for vintage printed blouses. I just can’t seem to get enough of these patterned styles in my closet, which is already bursting at the doors. But there always seems to be room for at least one, or two, or three more. I stock up on vintage blouses in a variety of patterns and colors because of how easy they are to dress up a pair of jeans. They are made for days when I’m not sure what to wear. These six places below are my go-to spots for vintage blouse hunting, and they are super affordable, too. Every time I go, I find something special. Sometimes the hunt seems to take far too long, but in the end I always find that it’s worth the time spent digging in these places.
A popular Williamsburg vintage pip stop. The back is full of gems from decades back. The front is cheaper and more current (80s/90s) and it’s always worth a look through.
285 N 6th St., Brooklyn
Both locations are quite large, especially the Greenpoint one. There’s so much to look through it can be overwhelming. I like to go through the store by color.
74 Guernsey St. and 23 Bogart St. locations in Brooklyn
Fox & Fawn
A little hole in the wall shop that has a little bit of everything and has a little more of a curated feel.
570 Manhattan Ave., Brooklyn
One of the biggest places to shop vintage in all of Manhattan. Literally you will find everything here for everyone. So many prints, it might be hard to choose! It’s super cheap, too! Even the toruists are hitting up this place nowadays.
120 Knickerbocker Ave., Brooklyn
This place is small, chic and super curated. If you are looking for a more minimal, simplistic approach to vintage wear, then this is the place to go. But they have very lovely, tamed down prints.
337 E 9th St., Manhattan
If you are looking for quality and designer, then this is the place for you. Vintage is spread out through modern day designer and ready to wear brands. I love going in to look for Chanel pieces!
83 E 7th St., Manhattan
