Looking to find vintage clothing in Madrid, but not sure where to look? Lucky for you, there are many different vintage clothing stores in Madrid, especially in a few of the neighborhoods that are considered more “hipster,” (for example Malasana). Follow this guide to find the best vintage stores to shop at right here in Madrid. Don’t get “vintage clothing shopping” confused with “thrift shopping”! The two have very different definitions. Vintage clothes shopping is buying clothes from decades past that have been refurbished or made new again to wear; sort of like antique shopping for clothes. Thrift shopping is buying used, gently worn, or older clothes at second hand shops. Vintage clothes shopping is a bit pricier than thrift shopping! Madrid itself doesn’t have many thrift stores within the city center (although there are several flea markets you can visit, where you might find what you’re looking for!), but, within the city center, you will find several vintages stores.
This trendy vintage clothing store, Aramayo, found in three different locations, you’ll find a fine selection of products. From vintage military jackets, kimonos dating all the way back to the 1960s, and refurbished leather handbags, there’s something here for everyone to like. According to Aramayo’s website, they are one of the only vintage clothing stores in Europe that offer products from across the globe. Their products are a mix of vintage clothes coming from Asia, Europe, Australia, and the United States.
