Every time I walk into a vintage clothing shop, I get this feeling: somewhere inside is a special item waiting just for me and it’s going to be perfect! In fit, style, and price. A true find!
In this age of fast fashion chain stores and conformist ideals set by mega brands, shopping second-hand and vintage will not only contribute to the sustainable fashion movement but will no doubt give your wardrobe a boost. And as a bonus, these fabulous goodies are just a fraction of their original price.
Whether you’re looking for lower-priced designer finds or no-name retro to add some funk to your style, here’s our list of second-hand and vintage shops to know in Copenhagen.
If you’re looking for designer clothing galore, Studio Travel won’t disappoint. Italian-born owner Daniella has curated a wonderful array of colorful items. Often second hand stores can feel stuffy, but not here. The white space makes for an airy environment and a lovely shopping experience.

With not one but two centrally-located stores, this vintage shop is double the fun. The first store is the bigger of the two, fully packed with all your vintage and retro needs. The second, smaller location has more of a boutique feel and some more sparkle (if that’s your thing). Luckily the stores are only two streets apart so it’s a two birds, one stone situation.

I will warn you now: You will get lost in the magical treasure box that is Décor. Lone, the owner, has been collecting vintage decor, vintage clothing and costume jewelry for nearly four decades.

At first glance, the minimalist Danish aesthetic of the boutique may trick you into thinking it’s empty. But fear not, there is more than enough to choose from. In this consignment store, with its collection of must-have items, it’s next to impossible to walk out sans an item in hand.
