Vintage walhalla: Episode Amsterdam
If you like wearing vintage and secondhand clothing, then you must know Episode in Amsterdam. With four(!) locations in Amsterdam. One of the shops is located at Nine Streets (but of course!) at Berenstraat. Episode is known in Amsterdam as one of the biggest shops for vintage and secondhand clothing, with a big assortment. Simply put, Episode buys their clothes that are donated by people. But that doesn’t mean that there’s even one item in the shop that looks kind of worn out or bad. That’s because all items are actually carefully picked by the employees of Episode.
Dr. Martens, Levi’s and other popular brands. You can find them all here for good prices. And sometimes they get big batches of clothing that looks brand new. Which is nice when you’re not really going for that vintage look, but still wants to find nice clothes for less money! I honestly don’t really wear vintage myself, but sometimes trends of course keep making comebacks. And the “original” fashion items are in my opinion always a little nicer. And you can get these at Episode!
