I love vintage shopping. There is not a lot that beats the feeling of going through piles and piles of clothes and finding that one piece that you didn’t know you needed, but fits you perfectly and oddly enough will work well with everything you already own.
Haarlem has never had a big selection of stores that sell good vintage, but lately that has changed a bit. One of the new additions to Haarlem is Episode. Episode is a chain of vintage stores that has shops in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Paris and Copenhagen and since last year also one in Haarlem.
The good thing about Episode is their large selection that is very neatly organized. Dresses go with dresses, long leather jackets go with other long leather jackets and crop tops are only mixed with other crop tops. You get what I mean. Saves you time and energy.
Prices here are ok. Episode is not the cheapest vintage shop that exists, but clothes are clean. It depends a bit on what you are looking for. Tops and dresses I find to be quite expensive sometimes, but a pair Converse All Stars for €25 is a good deal in my opinion (shoes are also washed and are not falling apart).
