Top 5 Vintage & Second Hand Shops In Northern Quarter

Northern Quarter is well know as Manchester’s hub of individualism, with an abundance of vintage clothing, quirky bars and food that is every Instagram lovers dream.

With so many vintage and second hand shops, you can easily spend hours searching through rails and rails of clothing, and go home empty handed.

So here is our top 5 destinations for all things vintage in the Northern Quarter!

  1. Pop Boutique

An easy favourite!! Pop Boutique is well known amongst avid retro and vintage lovers. The rails are consistently kept tidy and easy to sort through, the clothing is carefully picked and makes vintage shopping a considerably less time-consuming task (because no one likes faffing in shops). They also stock vintage furniture downstairs and have a popular cafe next door – amazing.

34-36 OLDHAM STREET, MANCHESTER, M1 1JN

 2. COW

Situated in the heart of Northern Quarter, COW is perfectly placed on the corner of Church St, and the brilliant window displays definitely catch your eye.  With a range of vintage clothes for all tastes, including a wide range of 90s clothing, COW is a popular destination for many Northern Quarter dwellers. They have shops across the country, including a pop-up shop in the Arndale Centre’s Topshop, and also stock clothing online.

The exterior of Retro Rehab perfectly demonstrates the shops character- colourful, quirky and true to it’s roots as a retro boutique. The clothing is lovingly revived by the team and you can see this attention to detail in all their pieces. It’s also great value for money, which is always a bonus!

I LOVE it here! All their clothing is sustainable, ethical and really cool. Shopping in Junk Shop is so refreshing, the colours and fabrics are all uber unique, wearable and affordable (yey!). They also do a range of sewing courses to suit anyone from beginners.

2 DALE STREET, MANCHESTER, M1 1JW
Monday- Friday, 11-6.30pm
Saturday 10.30-6.30pm

5. Oxfam Originals

Last- but definitely not least, Oxfam cleverly opened Oxfam Originals to target a more specific audience and they’ve done a pretty great job. The shop is perfect for second-hand designer brands, meaning that unfortunately they do come with a more hefty price tag.

51 OLDHAM STREET, MANCHESTER, M1 1JR
Monday- Saturday, 10-6pm
Sunday 12-5pm
