We Love These Online Vintage Stores

Secondhand is perennially cool.

If you know us at all here at Couturesque, then you know about our unabashed love for all things vintage. We've given you tips on how to approach vintage shopping and how to score some killer second-hand denim. But what do you do if vintage stores, consignment shops, or resale boutiques aren't just a short drive away? 

Well, I can tell you what you are not going to do - worry. The internet has finally fed our dire need for nationally (and internationally) accessible vintage clothing with a bevy of insanely cool e-commerce sites. Catering to everyone from the free spirit to the 90s kid, these online shops put unique and upcycled clothing right at our fingertips.

Whiskey and Honey
This Texas and Washington-based vintage business has one of the most creative (and convenient) selling models out there. If you scroll through their beautifully curated Instagram feed of minimalistic understated clothes and decor and stumble upon a piece you love, all you have to do is be the first person to claim it in the comments and it's yours. It's as easy as that!

L Train Vintage
Yes, this NYC chain is technically a brick and mortar vintage name (with 7 locations throughout the city), but not all of us can live in the Big Apple, can we? Luckily, the chain recently debuted their very own website featuring hand-picked vintage pieces bringing 90s New York a whole lot closer to home.

Adored Vintage
Hands down the most romantic vintage shop on the web, these pieces would make Jane Austen swoon. Soft muted colours, delicate lace, and flowing silhouettes, it is the vintage store of our dreams.

Desert Vintage
Mix prairie-style cuts and florals with Indigineous influences and a Valentino-style romanticism, and you get the southwest daydream that is Desert Vintage. Not only are the items at the Arizona-based shop and site one-of-the-kind, but they are simply breathtaking.

Frankie Collective
Filled with fresh classic 90s Americana, this ultra-cool online shop not only has vintage Tommy, Champion, and Fila, but they also carry re-worked specialty pieces. Sporty. Fresh. Cool. Count us in.

Raleigh Vintage
It's one thing to be a killer classic vintage spot, but to get the seal of approval from Vogue is next level. This shop's site is filled with idealistic pieces from the 30s and beyond. No matter what your style, they have something for you.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
