Nowadays everyone wants the newest, next best item of clothing, accessories, and shoes. What most people don’t know is that vintage items are a hidden treasure! The common misconception is that vintage is dirty and too hard to find, but with the right tips and tricks you can become a pro vintage shopper and score some excellent finds.
- Do your research: This may take some time, but it will all be worth it. Take advantage of the internet and search the best consignment/vintage stores in your area. Going to a bigger city will give you a much larger array of options. In fact if you find yourself in San Francisco anytime soon we’d recommend Helpers House of Couture.
- Time: Make sure you have laid out a generous amount of time to go on your vintage hunt. This takes patience, but pays off in the end.
- Bring a friend: Vintage shopping is so much more fun with a shopping partner. Together you can search the racks, which will make your experience twice as sweet.
