About Us

East Village Vintage Collective is a brick and mortar store located at 545 e 12th Street in Manhattan, NY. We opened in August 2015 with an aspiration to bring back some of the old school East Village vibe that we love so much. No more chain stores but stores that bring the art and funk to the neighborhood that we live in and love.

At East Village Vintage Collective we like to consider ourselves a curated thrift store. We have picked through the jumbled second hand store racks to bring you a curated collection at the same low prices. We feature two floors of vintage fun! Clothes for adults and children, vinyl, tchotchkes, housewares, toys and more.

We add new items in store almost every day and on our website once a week (every Thursday to be exact if you want the edge on the other vintage shoppers!). We also have guest vendors that sell at our store which keeps things interesting and helps our inventory vary and stay fresh.

In addition to providing folks with super great every day wears, we also offer rental and discount pricing for photo shoots, music videos, film, television and any other sort of production need. We have way more available than what is on the website and in store. So, just reach out to us and we’ll get you what you need! Even if it means sending out one of our personal shoppers to pick up bulk items from a certain era.

We try to describe our clothing as well as possible. Remember that as with all vintage clothing everything is pre-worn and may not be 100% perfect. Please contact us with any questions you may have before buying. We do not offer refunds or exchanges on line or in store.

We are so glad to have you shopping with us! Enjoy your unique items!! And keep visiting us for more great finds!! By supporting us you are supporting eco friendly fashion, women owned business and small business! Go you!!
