Free Time Frenzy |Spruce Up Your Spring Style


As the weather begins to change, we all need to update our spring and summer style. Philly has some great vintage clothing shops that will have you looking dapper and ready to impress. The shops are currently looking for spring and summer fashion, so take some out of your spring cleaning! This could make some extra room for statement pieces from some of my favorite vintage clothing stores.

Retrospect Vintage
Retrospect offers a variety of furniture, clothing, and accessories. The shop has an Instagram account (@retrospectvintage) that you can purchase items directly from their account using PayPal. The store is owned and operated by the Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey. Each purchase will fund the Goodwill mission of “providing job training and career services that help local residents with disabilities and disadvantages get to work.”

Buffalo Exchange
The shop in Rittenhouse Square, located at 1713 Chestnut Street, is part of a US chain of new and recycled fashion retailers. You can buy, sell, or trade your clothes, to make a few bucks and to find something to spruce up your look. The Philly location is actively looking for new spring clothes to sell in their store, so now is a perfect time to clean out your closet. You can even order some of your favorite looks from their online platform!

Once Worn Consignment
Once Worn is a great, little vintage shop in Northern Liberties. The shop offers vintage styles in any price range, but make sure to check out the sale section before you leave. Past customers of the consignment shop have posted reviews on Yelp, proclaiming some pretty awesome deals they were able to score! Once Worn can be found at 906 North 2nd Street, you can even grab a bite from some nearby restaurants at the Piazza.
