Five Vintage Clothing Shops

Shopping in Madrid

by Julie Espinosa

ClothesSecond-hand shopping is a fun pastime in any city and Madrid is no exception. Now the prices are nowhere near the rock-bottom steals I’ve found in cities in the U.S., but sometimes prices here are negotiable. Here are five shops to check out:

1. Underground: This place is packed with clothes from the ’50s to the 90’s, and I mean packed. Peek into the back room and you’ll see bags and bags of more pieces. Perhaps they have underground storage too?

2. Holala: This Malasaña shop’s an eclectic mix of used clothing and the quirky new things by Zombie Studio. Take a romp through these retro designs.

3. Humana: This is the most reminiscent of Goodwill stores, in that their purpose is humanitarian and recycling. Their five Madrid locations offer a little of everything at low prices.

4. Corachón y Delgado: This is an upscale vintage boutique with plenty of accessories and designer clothing.

5. Lotta: Another nicer vintage shop worth browsing with hand-picked name brands, lots of dresses.

What other places do you know of in Madrid to buy unique vintage (or vintage-style) clothing?
