What Goes Around Comes Around

Hone your personal style at SLC’s vintage and consignment stores.

What goes around comes around, and in Salt Lake City, vintage clothing and pre-loved furniture shops are popping up all over, and the prices aren’t as overblown as you’d find in LA or Dallas. As the former “Shop Girl” columnist for City Weekly, I find there is nothing like the thrill of the hunt, and of finding a cast-off designer item at dopamine-inducing low prices. Not only is it environmentally prudent to reuse clothing and household goods, but the act of shopping locally circulates more dollars in our community and encourages meaningful connections with store owners. Come discover these pre-owned and vintage shops in the city—then keep looking for others (there are many).

Vantage: Coats of many colors, Levi’s to bomber to Carhart jackets

vantage vintage store Salt Lake City
This is where all the cool kids shop for ’70s to ’90s threads while enjoying great tunes on rotation (Olivia Rodrigo loved shopping here while filming High School Musical at East High School). This place for sure has a vibe with two massive disco balls overhead and featuring goods like Doc Martens, Polo rugbies, jean jackets, camo and graphics tees from the ’80s and ’90s—much of it LA sourced. Super curated and organized, the shop rocks new arrivals every day. Check out the summer $5 sale in the alleyway that draws the crowds. 774 E. 800 South, SLC, 385-315-1848, IG: @vantageslc

Shop Vintage: Add nostalgia to your style

Step back in time to a selection of clothes curated by color and sourced from SLC and LA. Open about two years in Sugar House, here is the place to find Woolrich, Dickies, Carhartt, iconic 501 Levi’s and Realtree. Shop the decades from the ’80s through early 2000s. The vibe is Druski meets Napoleon Dynamite. 1115 E. 2100 South, SLC, 801-839-2209, vintageclothingsaltlakecity.com

Crewneck Vintage

A gem tucked in the back of Village Vintage Interiors in Sugar House. This little space is brimming with mostly men’s stuff from the ’80s and ’90s, like old trucker hats you’d find in offbeat places like Reno, Waco, Wendover, and Buffalo. Vintage sports apparel is in high demand, and Crewneck has it with Utah Jazz jackets with the old-school purple mountain logo and ’90s-era Chicago Bulls tees. You’ll find a second outpost of Crewneck Vintage inside Annata Collective. 1100 E. 2015 South, SLC, IG: crewneckvintage

Annata Collective: Molto bello!

“Annata” means “vintage” in Italian, and I’m already sold on the name. This dreamy store is filled with retro home goods, apparel and shoes. Owner Nicole Jensen sources daily in and around SLC, and her merchandising is design-magazine worthy and will inspire you to re-do spaces and closets. There is a denim bar, poster wall, kid’s shop and even a cowboy boot section. There are also nine unique vendors inside featuring their own vintage finds in home and apparel. Things I want so badly: brass storks, tall brass flower candlesticks, ’90s era Camel cigarette ashtray and a McCoy 1940s black lion men’s dresser. 362 E. 900 South, lower level, SLC, IG: @annata.collective

Name Droppers: Designer duds
