4 Vintage-Curated Stores For Your Next Trip To the Thrift

The global vintage scene may be notorious for the surging band tees and graphic apparel trends, but ‘vintage’ places emphasis not just on these designs but (of course) on the past.

Being able to acquire a piece of history goes beyond the garment, but rather sheds light on the stories it possesses. Whether it’s a used Stone Cold Steve Austin tee from the 90s or a pair of bell-bottom jeans, there is a circuitry of ownership present. It is with this intrinsic value that the vintage scene brings to the present—its relevance in expression and being able to withstand the test of time.

Rummaging through your parents’ closets or searching rack after rack at the local ‘ukay-ukay’ (although time-consuming) may just do the trick, though if to no success, here are four curated spots that you might wanna check out for your next trip to the thrift.

It's Vintage

Store Location/s: 195 Salcedo St., Legazpi, MakatiCity

Store Hours: 11:00AM – 6:00PM (Everyday)

It's Vintage continues to inspire the youthful-vibrant vintage enthusiast with its array of products. Their selection is not limited to tees, jackets, and quality-Levi denim, but also more eye-catching type pieces—such as halter and tank tops bearing much influence from the Y2k era. With an overall warm and inviting atmosphere, Fed and the team will definitely have you coming back for more.

The Archives Vintage

Store Location/s: 3619 Rivera St., Baclaran, Paranaque City

Store Hours: 10:00AM – 8:00PM (Everyday)

From graphic tees and pullovers to pre-owned Nikes and 990s, The Archives Vintage offers its shoppers a vast selection of products, both in-store and online. The best-friend tandem of Miguel and Nica opened its doors to its physical branch last 2022, as its selection is to be of relevance to the emerging fashion trends and variety.

Vintage Vault

Store Location/s: 58 Branches St., Project 8, Quezon City
Store Hours: 10:00AM – 8:00PM (Everyday)

Vintage Vault (hence, its name) houses a variety of pre-owned apparel, footwear, and accessories, mostly in-line with luxury branding. Its eye-catching deals will definitely make you look twice, as all of the listings are in fact authentic and definitely worth their price. With the pandemic settling, the brand has found its new home in Project 8, though it continues to operate online as well through its Instagram platform.

Season Pass

Store Location/s: 63 Maginhawa St., Diliman, Quezon City

Store Hours: 1:00PM – 8:00PM (Thursday-Sunday)

Probably the most recognizable name off this list, Season Pass (@seasonpassph) arguably pioneered the influence of the global vintage and streetwear scene in the Philippines. Owner Lean Torres set foot in the industry, mainly trading on the Facebook platform before the store’s inception in 2018.

The brand’s line is heavily populated with vintage tees from the past five decades, though extends towards the various themes of workwear, streetwear, luxury, and even dabbling on accessories and footwear pieces. In-house vendors at the establishment include Gimme the Loot (@giveme_theloot) and vistmnl (@vistmnl), two of the many active businesses present in their monthly flea market.

Season Pass’ community-driven matra continues to flourish through their upcoming event, Good Old Days 2, the largest community flea market in the country this April.
