There’s plenty to see in Verona as far as fashion goes, but nothing beats rummaging through the flea markets and vintage shops for inspiration and one-of-a-kind pieces. This city has many great consignment shops and boutiques where you can spend hours browsing, as well as a big flea market full of old goodies that we’ll show you how to find.
This is a place for luxury-minded vintage shoppers and lovers of high fashion to browse for prestigious labels. The window itself is a real treat, crammed with gorgeous little Chanel jackets and purses peeking out in true Parisian style behind a arched stone facade. Inside, you’ll find lovely Pucci dresses, delightful old home furnishings and classic sneakers in perfect condition. Prices are on the upscale side, but you can always find great inspiration.
Entering through the all-white storefront in the middle of the historic center, you’ll find yourself in an elegant living room full of gorgeous things. Cecile is a boutique run by three women passionate about vintage. You’ll find everything from the 1940s right on through to the 1980s, as well as more recent collections.
Every first Sunday in San Zeno Square there’s a delightful antique market full of knick knacks for an afternoon of browsing. You’ll find everything from gorgeous Tiffany-style lamps and Murano glassware from Venice to old books, vinyl records and antique postcards. As far as clothing, you’ll have to dig through the piles for those truly great budget finds, like used Persol sunglasses and Armani dresses from the 1990s. Other open-air markets exist, and with some luck and a lot of walking it’ll be easy to stumble upon something great.
