Brick Lane Vintage Market
One of the largest permanent vintage markets in London, this is an underground haven of dozens of sellers from across the UK and Europe. With everything from leathers to vintage Prada, it deserves at least one full afternoon for its many affordable hidden gems.
Block F, 85 Brick Lane, E1 6QL
Found & Vision
In the heart of Portobello, vintage boutique Found & Vision counts Kate Moss, Florence Welch and Sienna Miller among its celebrity fans. Head there for a more curated selection of designer pieces if rummaging through rails isn’t your thing.
104 Golborne Road, W10 5RU
Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair
Travelling vintage market Judy’s regularly hosts events across London, Leeds, Edinburgh, Bristol and more, offering a one-stop shop for stalls selling everything from 80s dresses to reworked accessories. You’ll pay a small entry fee, but price checks are implemented to ensure shoppers pay up to 75% less than other high street vintage stores.

Laura Von Behr
If the thought of turning up in the same Zara dress as another wedding guest makes you shiver, visit Laura von Behr’s studio for something unique. Visits are by appointment only, but her rails are awash with feather-adorned, puff-sleeved delights that make it difficult to leave empty handed. Prices range from £150 to £250 and appointments are free of charge.
Hackney Downs Studios, E8 2BT
Phoenix on Golborne
Another must-visit on Golborne Road, Phoenix is as famed for its antique furniture (housed on the first floor of the store) as its collection of vintage women’s clothing on the ground floor. New pieces arrive every week, so it’s worth regularly checking back for great finds.
67 Golborne Road, W10 5NP
Rokit has stores in Camden and Brick Lane, or Covent Garden if you prefer to stay central. It’s one of the most established names on the vintage scene, so expect huge amounts of choice. Bags and accessories are its pièces de résistance.

With a swoon-worthy collection of luxury vintage, William is as much a museum of haute couture as it is a shopping destination. Loved by Victoria Beckham and Rihanna, it adds a touch of luxury to the vintage shopping experience. Book an appointment before your next occasion.
2 Marylebone Street, W1G 8JQ
Scouted out by vintage expert Isabelle Hardy, Anita Is’s collection features Sandro-style cardigans, ruffled blouses and floral dresses that blend of French girl chic and 70s cool. If you rely on seeing clothes on, pieces are modelled by Isabelle herself to alleviate worries about fit.
Atijo’s curated collection of homeware and clothing is a minimalist’s dream. DM them to shop highlights including Prada courts and Céline mules.
Fashion writer Daisy Murray finds and restores adorable vintage dresses, then sells them via her Instagram account for as little as £60. Expect ruffles, florals and puff shoulders that feel very Little House On The Prairie.
One Scoop Store
There’s something for everyone on One Scoop Store’s site, by which we mean everything from Zara biker jackets to Shrimps dresses at purse-friendly prices.
Open For Vintage
Hot on the heels of Vestiaire, Open For Vintage is fast becoming the online destination for pre-loved designer fashion. The site sells everything from clothing to jewellery, but it’s the handbags that deserve a special mention – Chanel, Hermès and Gucci are just some of the names available.
Paloma Vintage Copenhagen
Paloma Vintage has a physical store in the Danish capital, but if you can’t make it to Scandinavia, comment on its Instagram posts to shop its wares instead. With a mix of designer and vintage finds that feels so Old Céline, it’s worth the shipping fees.
With a clean aesthetic and a focus on tailoring, Retold Vintage is a ‘new Bottega’ for the vintage lover. Pieces are released in collections on intermittent drop dates that sell out quickly, so be sure to turn notifications on.
