New York, United States
As the stomping ground for New York's creative cool kids, leafy Williamsburg is packed with thrilling thrift stores. If you're a newbie looking to launch yourself into the world of vintage, head straight to Buffalo Exchange, an OG on New York's pre-loved circuit that's been retailing in killer clothes, shoes and decor for over 47 years. If it's a smaller, more intimate shopping experience you're after, there's Unearth Vintage, specialising in fashion from the 1940s through to the 1990s, and Awoke Vintage. Originally an Australian market pop-up, Awoke's first bricks-and-mortar store has become a go-to for NYC's high-flying fashion stylists on the hunt for off-radar finds. Finally, no trip to Williamsburg would be complete without a visit to Artists and Fleas, a busy indoor marketplace touting everything from vintage vinyl and handmade goodies to wacky top hats from the Twenties.
