From the South Street storefronts to the pop-ups to the Punk Rock Flea Market, Philly has no shortage of vintage clothing, with a handful of passionate curators that keep the culture thriving. Whether you’re shopping for vintage sports apparel or vintage luxury items, sneakers, or jewelry, Philadelphia has one of the most diverse vintage scenes on the East Coast, if not the country. What did you expect from a city of 1.7 million?

There are plenty of places to go vintage shopping in Philadelphia, with vintage, secondhand, and some worthwhile Thrift stores scattered throughout the neighborhoods. With a diverse vintage clothing scene comes a community of cool people with a passion for dope clothing. I can confidently say that all of these vintage stores are run by Philadelphians you’ll want to support.

Philadelphia’s vintage scene is constantly changing, so with that, we plan on keeping this guide constantly updated. Without further ado, here are the best vintage clothing stores in Philadelphia.

Vintage Shops

Philly Vintage Bazaar

What happens when four Philly vintage collectors and resellers decide to open a brick-and-mortar store? Come to South Philly to find out, you won’t regret it. If you have an eye for design and decent fashion sense, Philly Vintage Bazaar is one of the best vintage clothing stores for apparel, accessories, and home goods in Philadelphia. 

Founded and now curated by the kind people behind @sweetjanevitage, @atomicpopvintage, @stoneponyvintage, and @peelandwaxvintage, you can guarantee the inventory will be fruitful. While they don’t currently sell online, the brick and mortar shop is located on S 4th St, just south of Philly’s vintage hub, South Street. 

The shop is delicately curated, so you can almost guarantee you’ll find some vintage gems in their collection. The furniture is always unique and the home decor is stylish. The clothing in the store is made up of beautiful, one-off articles for any occasion (think shirts, dresses, jackets, everything). The store has a great vibe as well, with a very purposeful setup that makes vintage shopping a delight.

Moore Vintage Archive

If you’re looking for vintage clothing that transcends the ordinary, we can’t overstate the clear passion that was put into curating a store like Moore Vintage Archive. This place is less of a vintage clothing shop and more of a meticulously curated art studio where fabrics take the place of canvas. Moore Vintage Archive is not just about fashion—it’s about preserving design history, promoting sustainability, and fostering a sense of community.

Stepping into Moore Vintage Archive, prepare to be captivated by an exquisite collection of high-end and designer vintage clothing and accessories. From mid-century dresses to designer business casual pieces and even a few graphic tees, this store offers something truly authentic for fashion enthusiasts seeking a unique style statement. 

The designers you’ll discover here may not be the ones you’re expecting – while Moore Vintage Archive does feature iconic fashion designers like Hermes and Comme des Garçons, it also showcases a collection of lesser-known high-end designers from around the world, offering a fresh and exciting perspective on vintage fashion.

Founded by the passionate and talented curator Keesean Moore, this black-owned store is appropriately located in Queen Village on 4th Streets Fabric Row. What sets Moore Vintage Archive apart is the passion and dedication that have propelled it from an online purveyor to a pop-up host and, finally, to a brick-and-mortar storefront that opened its doors in 2022. 

But it doesn’t end there—Moore Vintage Archive goes above and beyond by giving back to the community. Keesean Moore donates a portion of the store’s profits to local organizations, making every purchase not only a style statement but also a contribution to meaningful causes.

Experience the passion, artistry, and community spirit that define this exceptional establishment. Let the fabrics tell their stories and allow Keesean Moore’s curation to guide you on a journey through attire history. With Moore Vintage Archive, you’ll discover that vintage fashion is not just about clothing—it’s a form of art that transcends time.

Open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm and on Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.

Joelle Brodhecker, the owner-operator of the Washington Square West Boutique, clearly has an eye for striking fashion and trending designer pieces. While Addiction Studios does not have an official online store, they keep their social media feeds up to date with the vintage clothing currently occupying their racks. With a quick DM or call, they will ship almost anywhere.
