Camden Market Vintage Shops

Some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe are second hand–there’s no secret there. I like having unique things without spending a million dollars on designer duds. You can often find high-end items at thrift shops for cheap, which isn’t as great as free, but it is better than paying out the ass. I had heard that the Camden Market Vintage Shops are a good place to go, I decided to start there because¬†I’ve been scouring the land looking for vintage and thrift shops in London.¬†Camden Town seemed to be my best bet in my relative proximity for second-hand clothing.

Camden Market Vintage

I found Vintage Planet on Camden High Street, the clothes there were really sharp and well-cared for in comparison to typical dingy-smelling shops. It was just a mess of people on Saturday, I couldn’t deal with getting to all the racks of clothes, I bought a cute black silk top and a nice little jumper at decent prices. I didn’t really take too much notice of prices, since I couldn’t find them, but I’d say everything was fairly priced, seeing as how a lot of stuff around Camden can be a little…inflated.

Besides the random stalls of vintage scattered throughout the arches at the stables, you can find Modern Vintage off Chalk Farm Road which has a lot of the more kitschy clothes and housewares. I didn’t find anything here, but it’s worth a look, especially if you’re into the retro 50’s Suzy Homemaker-kind of thing.
