Vintage Istanbul

One of the city’s newer vintage shops, the collection at Vintage Istanbul is anything but new. Owner Özge Tan had been accumulating her goods for many years as a hobby, until she finally decided to share them. You’ll find everything from luxury brands like Vera Wang to equally fabulous no name brands, as well as jewelry and scarves.

Ayan Caddesi No. 52, Balat, Istanbul, Turkey, +90 532 700 83 63

Sentetik Sezar

Considered one of the city’s best, Sentetik Sezar proudly presents their collection in a neatly organized fashion with an eye for high quality. You’ll find clothing, shoes, and accessories from the 70s to the early 90s in very good shape and individually dry cleaned. Also check out their Facebook for new additions to the store.

If you’re on the lookout for vintage furniture as well as clothes, then Mozk should be your one-stop shop. Apart from the swimwear, corsets, and dresses, mainly from the 30s to the 90s, you can also set your sights on retro furniture and pieces designed especially by the store owners.

By Retro

This basement floor hideout has one of the largest selections of vintage finds available in Istanbul. You’ll spend a few hours browsing through leather jackets, wedding dresses, coats, sunglasses, and everything in between (neatly organized into sections, thankfully). It’s no surprise that By Retro provides costumes to Turkish TV shows.

Binbavul Vintage

With a name that translates into ‘one thousand suitcases’, you can only imagine what is awaiting you at Binbavul. A huge selection from the 20s to the 90s is ready for a good and thorough rummage, while the records, books, and cameras are also worth a browse.

Grandma Vintage

After having worked as Mavi Jeans’ visual merchandiser, Gizem Saluvan changed some things in her life and decided to open Grandma Vintage. In her shop you’ll find the accumulation of her regular visits to local markets and her international trips, including clothing, shoes, bags and accessories, as well as home decoration items and furniture. You’ll be sure to discover something good, because Gizem never buys anything she wouldn’t wear or use herself.
