Secondhand gems: Essential Orlando vintage shops 

In a city that's as mixed-and-matched as a thrifter's closet, rooting out good vintage stores can be a challenge without a little guidance. From authentic garments dating back to the '20s to unique bright fashions from the '80s and '90s, Orlando's vintage stores quite literally have your back if you're looking to stand out in tourist town. Here are the essentials.


2110 Edgewater Drive, 407-648-7480; 2525 E. Colonial Drive, 407-894-6622; 5250 International Drive,

Dechoes isn't specifically vintage so much as it is designer resale, but if you visit any of their locations you're going to find a mix of older items as well as more modern pieces from designers like Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen and more.

Déjà Vu Vintage Clothing and Accessories

1210 Michigan Ave., Winter Park, 407-838-3609

Celebrating 30 years in 2015 of time-warped treasure-hunting, Déjà Vu relocated recently, so many locals lost their way to their truly unique racks, but it is certainly worth plotting your course to rediscover everything from jumpsuits to jewelry at the new location.

It was a gem in the Milk District before people even went to the Milk District, so it's no shock their trendy vintage threads catch on just as quick with savvy-chic shoppers who don't have time to thrift. Bonus: on-site tailoring and adjustments.

Orlando Vintage Clothing and Costumes

2117 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park, 407-599-7225,

Whether you're looking for that perfect period piece to rent for a theme party or matchless outfits that demonstrate your distinct flair, Orlando Vintage houses a huge collection, from fur coats to sport coats.

The Owl's Attic

4031 Forsyth Road, Winter Park, 321-300-6957,

Off the beaten path and frankly hard to find if you aren't looking for it, this quaint shop with vintage and one-of-a-kind fashion is for those who enjoy the thrill of discovery. It's frequently less picked-over than stores closer to hip districts.

Postmarket Vintage

2906 Corrine Drive, 407-270-7729,

Previously only found at one-off events like Grandma Party Bazaar or on Etsy, the inspired attire lovingly picked by Postmarket Vintage can now be found at their brick-and-mortar shop located in the Lovely.


1231A N. Orange Ave., 407-674-8190,

This little shop, tucked away off the main drag in Ivanhoe Village, is jam-packed full of hand-picked vintage items (as well as some more modern pieces) for both men and women. The prices are reasonable, and if you keep coming back, you're bound to eventually stumble across a total bargain.
