The Sacramento Area’s Best Vintage Shops
It’s been said what’s old is new again, and nowhere is this more evident than in the vintage scene in the greater Sacramento area. Whether clothing, furniture, records, home décor or other cool stuff, vintage stores help bring new life into old items. In fact, vintage stores take the “reuse” part of “reduce, reuse, recycle” to a new level, keeping discarded items out of landfills and reducing our consumption.
Similar to antique stores, vintage shops are curated marketplaces of goods over a certain age. While antiques are generally defined as things over 100 years old, vintage items are typically only 20-30 years old or more. And unlike thrift stores, vintage shops are curated, meaning only the coolest, most stylish items are put out for sale.
So, without further ado, following are some of the best vintage shops in the greater Sacramento area.
