There are many draws to shopping vintage. On one hand, secondhand shops offer access to discontinued products — or simply those that have changed in quality or design over the years. But they also give buyers the chance to discover pieces that are comfortably worn-in with a patina that only decades of wear could produce.

While scouring eBay for clothing, footwear and accessories is practical, convenient and oftentimes cheap, nothing beats the rush from exploring vintage shops in person. More than just stores, these brick-and-mortars are treasure troves, shoppable sartorial history museums and their owners guardians of designs bygone. Bookmark our 20 favorite vintage stores for whenever your shopping urge strikes next.
