Vintage! I love it. Not everyone likes it but if you like it, Amsterdam really has a few shops that you have to visit (you don't have to do anything of course). Some are local shops and there are also international shops in between. Anyway, this is the list I always go off when I want to score a new outfit!
1). Marbles Vintage & Design Amsterdam
This vintage store has three branches in Amsterdam, on the Haarlemmerdijk (Centrum/Jordaan), Ferdinand Bolstraat (De Pijp) and on the Staalstraat (Centre). The last location in the list is new and I haven't visited yet, so I can't judge (yet). The other two find I TOP. Not too big, not too small, uncluttered and most importantly: I Think the style is super cool – of course that's very personal. Marbles offers – as they say – the best chosen vintage items for a good price and a large selection of leather bags and shoes, each unique.
Marbles Vintage & Design Amsterdam Centrum Jordaan – Haarlemmerdijk 64, 1013 JE Amsterdam (open daily 11am-19.00)
Marbles Vintage & Design De Pijp – Ferdinand Bolstraat 28, 1072 LA Amsterdam (open daily 11am-7pm)
Marbles Vintage & Design Centre – Staalstraat 30, 1011 JM Amsterdam (open daily 11am-7pm)
Yes Episode is probably among the Vintage lovers among us Known. This concept is not only in Amsterdam, but in a lot of cities including Brussels, Copenhagen, Paris and Antwerp. I'm a fan! In addition to the many shops in Amsterdam and 4 other cities in Amsterdam I have the shops also visited in Paris and they never disappoint me. Episode is actually a bit of a valhalla. The shops are often larger, the collections more extensive and They really have everything. Coats, hats, bags, sweaters, hems, shoes, bathing suits and so on. Many People Also Go to Episode to a Second-hand Levi's pants score. How they get them vintage? The vintage clothing donated to various Charity, they sell to Episode. Episode then looks at what clothes they can use and which clothes they can recycle. All second-hand and very durable!

In addition to clothing, Rumors also has shoes and accessories such as sunglasses and lots of choice of earrings. The vintage they offer starts since the 1940s & up. The Haarlemmerstraat is a must-visit if you are in Amsterdam and since the Marbles are also located here is a good reason for a visit, so.

In this store you can buy your vintage – yes how surprising – per Pounds. Whether this is cheaper or more expensive? I have no idea, the prices are in any case determined on the basis of kilos. Prices range from €25, €35 up to €45 per kilo. De Kiloshop has two branches in Amsterdam, at the Waterloo Square and in De Pijp. I myself am familiar with the establishment in De Pijp and I really like the shop: quiet, clear and plenty of choice. There was first also coffee served, but they don't do that anymore. The store Looks super cute from the outside with plants and because it's on the corner sitting with the door open invites it very much to go in – and I have Never regret that!
Kiloshop Waterlooplein – Jodenbreestraat 158, 1011 NS Amsterdam (opening times: Mon-Sat: 11am-7pm, so: 11.30-18.00).
