I love to mine for thrift stores and find different and unique pieces, especially when I travel. In New York, for example, there are several stores with used clothes and even some new ones that ended up not being used by their former owners. Nothing better than spending less buying cool pieces, right?
I’m really looking forward to the trip from Buenos Aires and there, besides the street markets, there are several thrift stores around the city. Their styles vary widely – some with more modern pieces and others very old. Your taste in clothes is what will help you decide which store to enter! I have separated for you some of the most interesting thrift stores there and I promise that each one deserves your visit visita
This thrift store’s clothes don’t even look worn! All the pieces of Bunker are very well taken care of, hand-selected and there they also offer some clothes never used for a much more affordable price. Anyone who likes more modern and stylish looks will surely love this place.
The store was created in 2016 and since then they have been gaining more and more customers, mainly because you can find new things even going there in the same week. Some of the brands sold there are Zara, Forever 21, H&M and Victoria’s Secret!

This is another very modern thrift store with incredible brands. Galpón de Ropa proposes to offer branded clothes at a cheaper price, keeping in mind fashion as something sustainable. They started selling clothes online and, now, they already have three stores spread across Buenos Aires!
There you will find a mixture of basic pieces, with vintage ones, going to the most contemporary shoes. Adidas, Forever 21 and Calvin Klein are some of the brands sold by this thrift store. It is really difficult to control yourself not to spend a lot of money.

Unlike Bunker and Galpón de Ropa, Vittorita sells only never used parts. What makes it very specific is the sale of antique pieces, with that very vintage face, you know? The owners of the store take care of the selection of pieces in the store: two sisters who dig around the city in search of different pieces.
Even though clothes are never used, the prices are more affordable and worth a visit – especially for those who enjoy this type of clothing. Ah, the only problem there is that it only opens on Saturdays and Sundays, that is, you will have to plan with a certain amount of attention!

Keak, like Vittorita, offers several vintage clothing options never used. These are very different items, some of them even peculiar. The prices are super affordable and you can find pieces for almost every taste. Most of the pieces are of the 80’s and 90’s style! If you like this style of products, you will love the store.
Address: Costa Rica 5758
Eureka Vintage Club
Eureka Vintage Club is the typical thrift store from anywhere in the world. The pieces are used and the vast majority are very old. One of its differentials is the sale of products other than clothes and shoes. There you will also find decorative items and even household items.
Anyone who likes antiques and vintage things can’t miss this thrift store. To give you an idea of the goods, they sell old record players, watches and speakers, sewing machines and the like.
Address: Suipacha 909
For those who want to find incredible items at a much lower price, these are some of the best options in the Argentine capital. In addition to thrift stores, a good option is to browse the fairs that are scattered throughout Buenos Aires, especially San Telmo. It will be almost impossible for you to return from there empty-handed 😉
