Vintage clothing that won't break the bank or require us to leave the house? Sign me up. These online vintage stores probably have cooler Instagrams than us too.| October 15, 2019
Ah, vintage shopping. In the age of instant gratification, there’s something about the thrill of the hunt and stumbling upon the perfect find after spending hours scouring racks. Owning a one-of-a-kind vintage gem makes the process all the more romantic and special.
Since vintage shopping isn’t really a thing in Singapore, we often get a little too excited when we find ourselves in cities like Paris, London and Tokyo which are well-known for their treasure troves of vintage items from various eras.
In the past, it can be a little difficult to get your hands on vintage clothing without traveling out of Singapore. Now, thanks to the internet and international mailing, you can score a vintage find simply by scrolling through your phone.
But be warned, the same rule applies: fastest fingers first. Sometimes, an item gets snapped up minutes after it is available for sale. Read on for a list of Instagram-approved vintage clothing stores that (probably) have a cooler feed than you.
