Did you know that the Gateway to the West is also the gateway to secondhand seventh heaven?
St. Louis is celebrated for its major league sports teams, gorgeous parks, astounding architecture, citywide art and blues music, LGBT-friendliness, and BBQ—and now you can add St. Louis thrift stores to the list of reasons to love “Louie.”
It may be seen as the underdog to Chicago, New York, or Boston, but St. Louis has got some serious secondhand fashion swag.
And that makes sense, given the first-ever cocktail party was hosted here in 1917 by a local woman who balked at prohibition trends condemning women drinking.
All that playful, renegade individuality made its way to modern STL, where we’re more like a cultural playground (or catwalk!) for adults than a serious nose-grinding “most fun city”.
Whatever it is you’re looking for, you won’t be singing the blues after getting some vintage clothing retail therapy from the best thrift stores St. Louis offers.
Don’t forget, your hot new thrift haul is about more than just sifting through a pile of second hand stores in the Show Me State.
Iron out your thrift shopping tips and unfold your way to the bottom of the bin (ahem, article) to see why thrift shopping makes our planet greener, too.
