A lot has changed when it comes to shopping in Philly. 2020 forced a lot of brick and mortar stores owned by small businesses to close and transition to online only. So, where can you still shop if you’re interested in walking around and supporting local shops? I’ve curated a list of the places that I would recommend for finding new (or vintage) clothes, shoes, and accessories! A lot of these stores also carry pieces by local makers, so you’ll support the store and maker in your purchases (extra yay!)!
You’ll see that I’ve organized the shops by neighborhood in Philly, and I threw in some of my favorites from South Jersey too. Take a look at my list. Did I miss any spots that you love? Did I mention one of your favorites? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you!
These first two shops are like high end department style stores, where you’ll find luxury designers, and unique pieces.
