South Beach in Miami has so much more to offer than the beaches and weather, and that includes the vintage shopping opportunities, for which the area is renowned. Miami is an absolute haven for shoppers, with street after street packed with stores of all different types to explore, including street markets, department stores and, of course, its famous vintage boutiques. A day shopping in the vintage boutiques in South beach is like spending a day traveling through time, with many shops specialising in past fashion-eras. Start your vintage journey at C. Madeleine’s, a large vintage shop which sells items dating back to the 1920’s through to more modern eras. Then head for the shops on Bird Road and don’t miss the famous Miami Twice that sells “everything and anything” and even does clothe rentals.Vintage shop Fly Boutique on Lincoln road has a great reputation for reproducing women wear from the 50s. Recycled Blues Inc on Washington Avenue has a great selection of classic men’s vintage clothing (think Levis jeans). It is likely that you will have planned a jam packed itinerary for your visit to Miami, but the late opening hours of the majority of the vintage shops in the area means that you can fit a shopping spree in regardless of your other plans. Many of the shops stay open until 9pm or later. Happy shopping!
