No Vintage like Harajuku Vintage

After visiting a few vintage and consignment stores in Harajuku and Kichijoji, I was convinced that the word on the street was right, “Japanese stores know their vintage”. It’s great to see stores specialize in vintage; there are all kinds: affordable, rare, traditional, expensive, one-of-a-kind, dated, etc. My favourite of all these vintage stores is the Flamingo store in Harajuku (with a franchise location in Shimokitazawa). Even if you’re not in a purchasing mood, do stop by for some serious eye candy. Their styling is inspirational, their product selection immaculate and their service is–well, see-kuh-reh-toh!
