5 of the Best Vintage and 2nd hand clothing Stores in Berlin
Vintage shopping in Berlin is a fantastic thing, yet a bit "difficult" without a proper guide. The distances between the city districts are pretty long and the stores may be hard to find. But we are here to help...
We have hand selected 5 vintage and 2nd hand clothing stores that are a must visit for every vintage lover going to Berlin.
Sing Blackbird is a small place with an urban feel that, besides offering some lovely vintage shopping, also is a café. In the store they offer selected vintage clothing, accessories, jewelry and shoes, many of which are designer pieces. The price range is wide and there is something for most wallets and tastes.
• Sanderstrasse 11, Kreuzkölln,+49 30 54845051, singblackbird.com. Open Mon-Sat 1pm-7pm
This place is loaded with vintage and second hand goodies. A big part of the sortiment is bought by the kilo so you can imagine you need to dig among a lot of 2nd hand stuff to find the absolute finds, but it's worth it....and for many vintage lovers also a lot of fun. The selection that is not by the kilo is more like vintage and of higher design quality. And there is a LOT of that kind as well.
Garage is not located in a hip area with restaurants, bars and cafés but it's definitely worth the visit anyway. Just take the train to Nollendorfplatz and from there it's a couple of minutes walk.
• Ahornstrasse 2, Berlin,+49 30 2112760, picknweight.de. Open Mon-Fri 11am-7pm, Sat 11am-6pm
Made in Berlin
One of the most popular vintage stores in Berlin, for both Berliners and tourists is Made in Berlin on Neue Schönhausser Str., one of the two locations they have. This store is the better of the two.
The range is wide and they offer hand picked vintage and second hand clothing and accessories from the 60s' to the 90's! The shop is well organized, bright and in two lovely floors. As almost all vintage stores most of the clothing is for women but the mens collection is surprisingly good, especially for the trendy young man.
There are a lot of fun stores and restaurants in the area, be sure to stroll around for a while.

The tough choice of picking the last one of so many. Garments is a lovely little store where the clothes are separated by moods, colours and styles. Not all vintage stores in Berlin are that well organized.
The range of clothing is wide with every day pieces to special occasion dresses. The price range is also really wide with some absolute bargains to designer outfits that will ruin you.
