Vintage shopping is one of my guilty pleasures and there’s nowhere better to indulge in it than Berlin. Markets are a great start, however, most only runs on Sunday. Berlin has one of the best vintage shopping in Europe that I’ve seen, whether you are looking for something thrifty and cheap or authentic and unique, there’s a place. So here is a list of of my favourite Berlin thrift and vintage stores.

For Sunday markets (which are also great for thrifting) – see here

Humanas

The granddaddy of thrift stores in Berlin, Humanas is your quintessential second hand and vintage stores featuring anything and everything and for all budgets. They have a fleet of stores across the entire city, but the biggest one is at Frankfurter Tor. The five storey building features everything from coats to authentic 70s bling bling jacket, and I even found a pair of roller skates once.

The cost of each item varies and I highly recommend you give whatever you buy a thorough cleaning before you wear it. Shopping in Humanas is more of a treasure hunt, so budget in time and be prepared to go away with nothing.

On my numerous visits to Berlin, I’ve gotten beautiful jackets for 10 to 39 euros, and have walked away empty handed.

PickNWeight

A better selection of vintage and thrifted clothes than Humanas, you can see as the name suggest that items are charged by their weight.

The colour on the labels indicate their price point, and there are 5 different colours. I like that they have clothes from all seasons available, unlike Humanas, and there is a basket for weighting so you know the estimated price. It turned out cheaper since they measure it after removing the anti theft device. 

There are two shops by Weinmeisterstraße U Bahn, one is bigger but both are worth a browse. I ended up buying a dress from each store for around 16 and 10 euros respectively.

Note: smaller accessories are already priced so not everything is sold by weight.

Address: Alte Schönhauser Str. 30, 10119 Berlin, Germany

Opening times: Mon – Sat 12:00 – 20:00

Made in Berlin

Close to PickNWeight is Made in Berlin, which has a great quality selection but is pricier. The two floor shop has everything from accessories to vintage designer bags, and everything is sorted into colours. If you are looking for something a little cheaper, head towards the basement’s corner room where there is a sales rack. Interestingly, they also carry some items from PickNWeight, but those are all priced individually.

Address: Neue Schönhauser Str. 19, 10178 Berlin, Germany

Opening times: Mon – Sat 12:00 – 20:00

Trash-Schick

A two room affair in Friedrichshain, Trash-Schick has both male and female items and another great hand picked selection. They also have a sales rack outside, and the clothing rotates according to season. The owner is fairly friendly, and I particularly love their range of accessories such as belts. They take pride in only selling the best quality items, so you are rest assured that whatever you buy has been well vetted.

Address: Wühlischstraße 31, 10245 Berlin, Germany

Opening hours: Mon – Sat 12:00-20:00

Sometimes Coloured

A similar shop to Trash-Schick, Sometimes Coloured is catered towards ladies vintage and even more selective and expensive. The space is smaller, but seems to draw more people but compared to Made in Berlin it doesn’t have as much variety. However, every single item looked cared for which is reflected in the price.

Address: Grünberger Str. 90, 10245 Berlin, German

Opening times: Mon – Fri 12:00 – 20:00; Sat 12:00 – 19:00

V Vintage Fashion

More 90s themed, V Vintage Fashion isn’t very large. If you are a denim and jacket lover, don’t miss this shop as they have a great range of sportswear jacket from the era, too. They also sell some punk and rock clothings that are not vintage.

Address: Kopernikusstraße 18, 10245 Berlin, Germany

Opening hours: Mon – Sat 12:00-20:00

Anziehend – Second Hand Mode für Frauen

Female only, smaller selection, feels more cozy and homey. It’s off to a quieter side street and worth a roam, but again there’s only items for women. There are more room to browse, as well as some hand knitted items thrown into the mix.

Address: Niederbarnimstraße 16, 10247 Berlin, Germany

Opening hours: Mon – Fri 11:00-19:00, Sat 12:00-17:00

Vintage shopping is one of my guilty pleasures and there’s nowhere better to indulge in it than Berlin. Markets are a great start, however, most only run on Sunday.
