The 10 Best Women’s Vintage Retailers on the Web Today

Style Lists

Although there is something to be said for the thrill of hunt when vintage shopping, digging through musty trunks in middle America’s off-road shops, or going to the Salvation Army with only hope as your guide, there is a new way to vintage, and let us just say, musty, dusty clothes are a thing of the past.

With Etsy leading the pack as the “it” vintage destination, special pieces are far easier to come by thanks to the countless vintage collectors, dealers and passionate fashionistas who spend their time making a living in the racks. This list highlights a few of these trade pioneers. Whether prim and proper ‘40s style is your weakness, or ‘70s biker babe calls to you, there is bound to be a shop to meet your fancy. While the appeal of thrifting may lie in the unexpected gem, you will soon find cyber-clicking your way through these selections is equally as rewarding—sans dust and mildew.

A full library of dresses from the ’20s all the way to the 70s, with day dresses and bridal options to boot, Raleigh Vintage has something for everyone.

For those looking for more western-inspired options, look no further than Windy Peak Vintage. While only a year old, Kristi Reed’s collection of iconic western pieces, men’s and women’s, along with housewares and beautiful leather goods, is thoughtful and handpicked. Self-coined as “western psychedelic surf jazz vintage,” Windy Peak Vintage’s selections call to our inner cowboy spirit. The big sky country backdrop only makes Reed’s Montana shop all the more alluring.
