31 of the best places for vintage and thrift shopping in Pittsburgh

The heyday of thrifting — and scoring great clothes for super-low prices at vintage shops — was supposed to be over, due to the rise of internet shopping sites like Etsy and eBay.

But nobody told Pittsburgh. There are more vintage shops now in Pittsburgh than ever before. (The prices, well … they’re not as cheap as the old days).

Of course, checking out the vintage/used clothing shops for the first time in a while was a bit of a shock — I’m still not over the fact that the ’80s, ’90s even the 2000s have become “vintage.”
