The 5 best vintage shops in Antwerp
1) Think Twice
The Finnish second-hand chain Think Twice now has four branches in Antwerp where they sell glamorous vintage dresses, shoes and bags. Look out on their Facebook page for T2 special promotions when they sell off everything in stock at prices that make no economic sense. By the third day, you can pick up stuff for just one euro.
2) Jutka and Riska
A cool vintage shop aimed at sophisticated women looking for inexpensive designer clothes and offbeat accessories. The friendly people who work here can help you find your way around. It may take no more than a €10 note to obtain the wildest sunglasses you have ever worn.
3) Labels Inc.
This shop sells clothes from past seasons by famous names in Flemish fashion, including the Antwerp Six and Martin Margiela, as well as a few international designers. The window display features new work by students from the Antwerp fashion academy.
4) Rosier 41
Hidden down a quiet side street, this is a good address to hunt for nearly new clothes by designers like Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Jil Sander. The window display often features clothes by young designers fresh from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
5) My Ohm
Vintage fashionistas in search of something different squeeze inside this tiny store on the Vrijdagmarkt. The shop is filled with second hand coats, shoes, bags and accessories. When it’s not raining, the owner moves a few racks out onto the square.
