Housing Works is a favorite of New York vintage stores, and upon entering, you’ll see why. It offers so much more than a small boutique clothing store – come here for home accessories, unique objects, and even a bookstore and café (in the SoHo location). Housing Works is the sort of place you can get lost in, so allow yourself ample time.

Mr. Throwback

Shop, Store
Mr. Throwback is a world away from some of the boutiques selling Oscar De La Renta on this list. Instead, they specialize in racks on racks of T-shirts, sweatshirts, and jerseys from the ’80s and ’90s. If you’re looking for a new pair of Nike Jordans, this is your spot, but be prepared to do some sifting. This place is overflowing with good stuff, and you’ll have to be patient to find what you want.
