Since I moved to Amsterdam, I have started to love Vintage Shopping. In Oslo, Vintage shopping is quite hard, given the thought that the selection is so small. But in Amsterdam there are so many different vintage shops, with so much clothing of great quality. Therefore I will in this post tell you about my three favorites, and where you can find them.
Zipper is located several places in Amsterdam, and has a lot of cool clothing. Here you can find several of Levi’s jeans, great sunglasses and supercool bomber jackets. I found my purple bomber jacket at the Zipper store located in the “9 streets,” and I have used it so much. You will also find a lot of nice jewelry at Zipper which is located in the “9 streets.”

This is definitely my favorite vintage shop in Amsterdam, and if you have the time to visit it, you will understand why. They have so many amazing jackets and purses with embroideries, old wedding dresses and an amazing selection of coats. As well, they have cozy sweaters, which look as good as new – just that they are only 25 euros and of great quality. This is definitely a store you should visit, and the best part is that it’s located in de “9 streets.” So easy to find. Tomorrow it will be a own post with the jacket I bought form this store – cannot wait to show you guys.

This vintage shop can remind a little bit about Zipper. Episode have stores in various cities in Europe as well. Here they have amazing leather bags for 35 euros (perfect for weekend getaway), cool bomber jackets, and great vintage clothing in general. Episode stores are located all around Amsterdam, and they should be easy to find.

I think it is so important that people start shopping more vintage, and I love how popular vintage clothing in Amsterdam. In this Fast Fashion society we live in today, it is so important to think about how much clothes we actually buy in a year, and how much we throw away. When buying vintage you contribute to reuse of clothing, resulting in throwing away less.
Hope this guide was helpful for you, if you wish to do some vintage shopping in Amsterdam. All pictures are borrowed from the webpages of the different stores, and google.
