At Apt­De­co, we love a good vin­tage find, so we’re break­ing down the best places to find vin­tage fur­ni­ture in Philadel­phia. If you’ve ever attempt­ed an after­noon of thrift­ing or antiquing, you know that being a good vin­tage shop­per is a refined skill. To score that one-of-a-kind piece before the crowds ascend onto your vin­tage par­adise you have to know where to go, what you’re look­ing for, and when to go. Not an easy feat. Lucky for you, we’re here to make your jour­ney to vin­tage nir­vana eas­i­er. Philly has an impres­sive ros­ter of vin­tage shops that you can pick from. As a small­er city, it’s the per­fect place to find dreamy vin­tage while avoid­ing the mas­sive crowds and main­stream buzz. 

With­out fur­ther ado, here are our favorite places for vin­tage fur­ni­ture in Philadelphia. 

Jinxed

1915 WASHINGTON AVE | 4521 BALTIMORE AVE | 1331 FRANKFORD AVE

The Low­down: Per­haps the Mec­ca of afford­able vin­tage fur­ni­ture and objects in Philly; they now boast 3 store­fronts in Fish­town, West Philly, and South Philly. They also post 🔥 hot items 🔥 on Insta­gram that you can buy over DM or on the phone.

Price: You can snag some amaz­ing deals on pieces of all sizes like this large art deco wardrobe for only $185 😱

I Can Dig This

717 HADDON AVE COLLINGSWOOD, NJ

The Low­down: We all know that when you say you’re from Philly you’re secret­ly from South Jer­sey, so head on over to this charm­ing shop in Collingswood! They sell a vari­ety of well-craft­ed MCM fur­ni­ture, but real­ly stand out with retro pieces that have built-in stere­os, record play­ers and record storage.

Price: Def­i­nite­ly a lit­tle prici­er, but only because of the high qual­i­ty and great con­di­tion of their pieces. You can still get a side table for under $200, but you’ll have to shell out at least $800 for the music-relat­ed furni.

Philly Vintage Bazaar

744 S. 4TH STREET

The Low­down: Fin­ish your corned beef sand­wich at Famous 4th St. Deli and head down the street to Queen Village’s newest vin­tage brick-and-mor­tar. Philly Vin­tage Bazaar is a col­lec­tive of three women-owned shops that band­ed togeth­er to sell retro fur­ni­ture, kitchen­ware, clothes, and cute objects.
