Gabi’s list of vintage

Whenever I get the chance to visit a vintage shop, I immediatly go there. You can literally loose me in there, because I won’t be back outside in only five minutes – in fact: I can literally be in there for at least half an hour! Since I’m a big vintage lover, I decided to make a list of my favorite vintage shops in the Netherlands. So if you’re visiting our beautiful country this Summer or if you’re gonna make a city trip, go check them out!

The Hague

I’ll start in my own city. The Hague isn’t the largest vintage city in The Netherlands, but we do have some very nice vintage shops.

Ilka Vintage & Secondhand

The first shop that pops up in my mind is Ilka Vintage & Secondhand located in the Sumatrastraat 160. This is one of my favorite shops in The Hague. Vintage lover Ilka has a small but great vintage & secondhand shop with a mix of high-end brands, such as Isabel Marant and Burberry, and more affordable labels, like H&M and Zara. Due to the variety of brands, styles and sizes, there’s a lot of choice and the prices are affordable too! What else do we need, girls?

Zusjes Vintage Boetiek

Zusjes Vintage Boetiek is a new and affordable vintage shop at the Boekhorststraat 93. Soulsisters Moniek and Sanne decided to bundle their passion for vintage and opened an art nouveau styled shop in the city centre. They already have a large womenswear collection, but they’re also busy with creating a menswear collection. The shop has a lounge corner with a sofa and coffee, so you can absolutely visit this shop with your boyfriend and/or father!

Jack by Jackie

Jack by Jackie located in the Prinses Mariestraat 7C is the place-to-be for designer items! This shop sells brands such as Prada and Gucci and has its very own shoe room. There are three floors of vintage over there, so if you’re a great fan of luxury vintage items go there and treat yourself!

Other vintage shops that you can visit when you’re in town are Episode, Secondhand Rose, Anneke Secondhand, April Secondhand Vintage Shop, Bennies Fifties Den Haag, SPOOKY & SUE, Mika Bella, Heet Strijken, Liza’s Exclusieve Mode, All-Labels and Second Hand Boutique.

Amsterdam

My favorite Dutch vintage city is Amsterdam. Here you have lots of choice for both men and women and I’ll guarantee you that you won’t return home empty handed!

Time Machine Vintage

One of my favorite vintage shops in Amsterdam is Time Machine Vintage. They were the first vintage shop of Amsterdam when they opened their doors in 1969. A visit to this shop feels like opening a treasure kit. Are you getting excited to go treasure hunting? You can find this shop in the Nieuwe Hoogstraat 5A.

Tommy Page Mantique Menswear

For men’s only vintage you must pay a visit to Tommy Page Mantique Menswear at the Prinsenstraat 7. This is a beautiful vintage shop with a variety of classic English menswear. It seems like the time stood still when you’re in there, it’s a lovely shop for quality clothing!

Marbles Vintage & Design Amsterdam

Marbles Vintage & Design Amsterdam has a huge collection of vintage items with its three (!) shops in the city centre. The shops are located at the Staalstraat 30, Ferdinand Bolstraat 28 and the Haarlemmerdijk 64. They have an impressive selection of handpicked vintage clothing, for both men and women, especially leather bags and shoes. With three shops you’ll definitly find something that suits you! Enjoy!
