Suddenly they spring up like mushrooms: designer vintage shops. And that’s a good thing, because it’s better to buy second-hand than new for a better future for our planet. Moreover, what beats a hidden gem from the distant past that only you possess? In any case, it makes our fashion hearts beat faster, and we are delighted with the addresses below, which together form a complete overview of the best designer vintage shops in Amsterdam. Be warned: you won’t leave most stores empty-handed.

These are the best designer vintage shops in Amsterdam

One designer vintage store is different from another, so you would do well to be prepared. Where ENSO Vintage, for example, focuses on the cool, minimalist, vintage aesthetic, Salon Heleen Hulsmann is the right place for new(er) items that are looking for a second home. Gimme Glitter and Fashian have a broad Y2K offering, and ByDanie Vintage brings a cacophony of color. Good to prepare for your vintage shopping session, then. It’s time for an overview of Amsterdam’s best designer vintage shops.

ENSO Vintage

For a long time, ENSO Vintage only had a webshop, but they are now located in the heart of the city center, on the Elandsgracht. The minimalistic selection contains items from different eras, which are always good. Think of Maison Margiela Tabi shoes, Gucci loafers, or Pleats Please by Issey Miyake. For the minimalists among us, this is one of the best designer vintage stores in Amsterdam.

Salon Heleen Hulsmann

Salon Heleen Hulsmann offers modern designer vintage, which is not necessarily vintage but second-hand. Everything is high quality, and Heleen only accepts good-quality items. You can go there by appointment for one-on-one advice or during their general opening hours.

(im)material

(Im)material on the Haarlemmerdijk is small but good. Their range of vintage designer blouses is excellent: from (Yves) Saint Laurent to Burberry and many other classics. Check out the men’s section for the ultimate hidden gems.

Gimme Glitter

Gimme Glitter is – as the name suggests – full of glitter and Y2K excess. Nineties sunglasses, Gucci bags, and other items covered with logos are widely represented here. Without a doubt, it is one of the most eclectic and best designer vintage shops in Amsterdam.

The ByDanie Vintage Store in Oud-Zuid is your go-to if you like color. Just like owner Danie Bles, the range is anything but boring. One color is even brighter than the other, and striking prints are also everywhere. Believe us, it will make you spontaneously happy.
