The best online vintage thrift stores.
There's no better feeling than stumbling upon the perfect vintage collectable. And the best part? It's completely guilt free and unique, so you won't risk the dreaded white and black polka dot dress saga of 2019.
Now don't get me wrong, I love a good old fashioned vintage rack raid, but I'm also just as well versed in the digital ether. Which is lucky, because it's literally a pandemic so even if I wanted to take in that oh so delightful not been washed for 30 years vintage musk in person - I can't.
But online vintage thrifting can be a challenge, especially if you don't want to trawl the likes of Depop, Ebay, Asos Marketplace or Vestiaire Collective for hours on end. (If you do think you're up for the challenge however, you can read my other post Online Vintage Shopping Tips to help to get you started as a bargain vintage hunter). So to make it that little bit easier, I've compiled a list of the best online vintage thrift stores to help you find the perfect one of a kind pieces. These wonderful online boutique's will save you time and provide you with a snapshot of the best curated garments on the cyber-sphere.
1. Courtyard La
Want to dress like all the LA it girls without leaving the comfort of your living room? Then Courtyard LA is the place for you. Just don't get too carried away - if you are ordering from the UK bare in mind that anything over £125 you will get charged a 2.5% import fee on.
Frequented by arguably the most stylish person on the internet - Alyssa Coscarelli, this store will make you stop your scrolling and take notice. Top tip: they have frequent Instagram sales which they run via IG stories - so it's worth giving them a follow to see if you can bag a bargain.
If you've read any of my other vintage blogs, you will have heard me sing this store's praises. They have an online store for designer vintage items and a Depop for everything else. Very reasonably priced and by far the most successful in terms of my vintage hauls.
Na Nin launched on Instagram 2016, and ever since then I have been obsessed with everything they do. They have also launched an in-house line which sells beautiful neutral, classic wardrobe pieces.
This gal is actually from my hometown of Sheffield, and has hit the ground running with her online vintage store which only opened a couple of years ago. Since, it has been featured in Vogue, Elle and many more.
Each piece in this store has been meticulously selected for its unique, timeless appeal with close attention to quality, fabric and cut. In the current climate of rediscovering and reworking beloved items of the past, this store encourages you to seek rare and original pieces to create inspiring one-off looks.
This London based store only opened in 2020 and are already proving themselves as key players on the online vintage scene.
7. LA ROCHE
I go to this store for styling inspiration as much as a shopping fix. If you want to dress like an Avant Garde fashion student then this is certainly the place for you.
8. Lucia Zolea
This beautifully curated boutique will have you reaching for your credit card (and maxing it out).
9. Miro Vintage
This is a shop via Instagram vintage account, which works a little bit like Ebay bidding. So you have to be very speedy if you want to cop anything. If you do manage to, drop me a message with your top tips as I still haven't managed to!
I've definitely saved the best till last with this store. You will have seen Collect 23 around the old Instagram block. And if you've ever asked yourself, where are these Copenhagen cool kids finding all their unique statement pieces? Then look no further my friend.
I hope you've found this write up useful, and if you found yourself a little Instagrammable number then please tag me on Instagram so I know you liked my post and I will endeavour to do more of them!
