Liverpool: a vintage shopping guide

Liverpool has a whole host of amazing vintage and second-hand stores. Here is my guide to shopping vintage and second-hand in Liverpool

Liverpool is known for being home to some of the best vintage and second hand shops. It’s always good to try and shop sustainably and to support independent fashion so that being said here is my guide for shopping vintage and secondhand in Liverpool.

COW VINTAGE is a staple vintage store in Liverpool located on Bold Street. The store consists of two floors scattered with reworked items by the amazing seamstresses. For those who are not so keen on the idea of wearing reworked items, COW offer a huge selection of untouched vintage items with just as much charm. They also offer an annual student event where they discount many reworked and non -reworked items.

COW VINTAGE offer outfit ideas on their Instagram @cowliverpool. My personal favourite items from Cow are the reworked Ralph Lauren tees and cropped blouses.
