Copenhagen has got to be one of the most fashionable cities in Europe, so it doesn’t come as a big surprise that there are plenty of amazing vintage shops to be found. Line Holm takes us on a tour of some of Copenhagen’s finest thrift shops, including one fit for a queen, literally.

Let me take you on a tour of some of the best vintage shops in Copenhagen. Here you can find antique fashion, some even dating back to the 1890s, but also fun party pieces from the Seventies and Eighties. In Copenhagen’s neighbourhoods and city centre there are plenty of places where you can lose yourself in heaps of elegant and fun garments from by-gone eras.

FN92 VintageWhen you first step into FN92 you could mistake it for a costume museum. The small basement shop is situated in Larsbjørnsgade just off Copenhagen’s big pedestrian street Strøget and has to be the vintage equivalent of Aladin’s cave. Here you can find exquisite dresses in all the colours of the rainbow.

The shop’s owner restores and redesigns vintage dresses, and you can see examples of the outfits on dressmaker’s dummies around the shop.

Amongst the beautiful shoes and hats you can also find customized headpieces in many colours with feathers and pearls.

Décor

This place is like travelling back in time and then entering your great-grandmother’s dressing room. Décor is an absolute goldmine for all things vintage. With pieces dating as far back as 1890s this is by far the most stylish vintage shop in the country –if not in all of Scandinavia.

Apart from a large selection of women’s clothing and jewellery, Décor also offers a fine selection of accessories and men’s clothing. And as something totally unique, you can find a few delicate wedding dresses from way back when.

The shop actually celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and is well known by stylists and designers for its great selection and friendly owner. It is even rumoured that the shop receives clothes from the Queen of Denmark’s private tailor…

Glam

In a small street next to Copenhagen’s large department store Illum you’ll find Glam. This is where the party’s at: underneath the disco ball and colourful wall paintings there are outfits to disco all night long.

The clothes here range from the Thirties to the Eighties, but most of it is disco cool. The shop is full of fun and festive clothes, and this is the place to go if you need a sparkling prom dress.

Pigen og pigen

In the Copenhagen neighbourhood Vesterbro there are plenty of small second-hand shops and one of the really good ones is Pigen og Pigen at Istedgade.

‘Pigen og pigen’ is Danish for ‘the girl and the girl’, and here you can find plenty of girly, colourful clothes from all over the world at a reasonable price.

    Hi!
    Just writing to inform you that sadly Pigen & Pigen closed down on the 31st of July. They had a fantastic sale though, where I found a very cute dress, so thanks for the tip 🙂 (They now sell some of their lovely vintage items on e-vintage.dk instead).
    Thanks for a great site!
