Women who have the most unique style also have a curious mind. Instead of focusing solely on trends they also take a deep-dive into off-season styles adding character to their look. Vintage and thrift shopping is one of the best ways to get your hands on luxury gems and unexpected grails. Online resale apps like Depop and Heroine provide a solid foundation for those looking for rare finds but there’s something that shopping in person can’t replace. For those in New York City and those visiting soon, we’ve rounded up the best vintage and thrift locations to check out. Old Celine fans and vintage Gucci lovers will be able to find special items all at a discounted price. Cozy girls can also search through the racks for retro logo streetwear and other athleisure gear that can be repurposed and given new life.

Peep our roundup of NYC’s best thrift and vintage shopping destinations below.
