The second full week in February is National Secondhand Wardrobe Week! This is a week where vintage lovers and environmentally conscious individuals can come together for some fun shopping time. Lynchburg has some great places you can visit to enjoy this week to the fullest. Come up with your game plan for what kind of items you’re hoping to score on, and we’ll help you find the right places to go to.
You can start observing this week by first taking a moment to do your own closet clean out. Find the items that no longer “spark joy” for you and consider donating them to Plato’s Closet. A Plato’s Closet employee will look through your items while you do your own browsing through their wide variety of trendy secondhand clothing, accessories and even shoes, and they will offer you cash on the spot for anything they want to keep for the store. It’s up to you if you want to keep it for more shopping or spend it on something that caught your eye on their clothing racks.
Plato’s Closet is great if you’re looking for clothing that is within current fashion trends, but if vintage is more of what you’re into, Lynchburg has a growing vintage scene where you can find some looks that are unique to your style and personality.
Windblown Apothecary has such a large selection of curated vintage clothing that you’ll be sure to find something that catches your eye. You can check out their Instagram for some style inspiration and to see what they currently have in store!
Within Speakertree you’ll find a rack of vintage sweatshirts, sweaters, T-shirts and even some hats. They definitely carry a cozier selection of vintage clothing if you’re looking for something familiar and comfortable.
Bittersweet carries a selection of women’s vintage clothing, named T(H)ORN VINTAGE, including band tour tees, Levi jean jackets and Wrangler jeans. This option is more of a high-end variety, but still affordable and super chic.
With the variety of clothing you’ll find at each store, we’re sure it will be a fun time of sifting through gems and finding pieces that you really love.
