Vintage: the 5 best thrift stores in Lille where to find a fashion nugget

Small tour of vintage addresses in the North of France where to find (for sure) the rare pearl: . In 2022, fashion has not finished plebisciting vintage. Whether it’s for durability or style, thrift

stores are blooming as far as the eye can see (and well beyond the capital!) and the wardrobes of yesteryear

are more desirable than ever. A success that is not without displeasure, since it allows you to (re)discover

the decades that have marked fashion through carefully preserved pieces;, but also to minimize your ecological impact by turning away from new. So whether you’re looking for a rare pearl

or simply a better way to consume, here is a compilation of addresses in Lille that, like a practical guide, will

be useful to all those who are still looking for the right place to find beautiful treasures.
