Vintage means second hand in Japanese. Second hand does not mean being useless or the “used goods”. It actually represents the classics of each period. There are many vintage shops in Japan. The Japanese know environmental protection and recycling. Many second-hand items are in excellent condition, including many limited editions, but the prices are very cheap.
Often, popular bags are snapped up as soon as they are stored in vintage stores. Therefore, you need to go to vintage stores to achieve the best items. The Vintage Bags Stores are mainly concentrated in Bangkok’s Siam business district, Silom business district, Dong Luo and Peng Pong districts where Japanese people gather.
There are many vintage bag shops on the first floor of the Siam Square One shopping center. Go from the BTS directly into the front door, turn right and there are two “Brandism” and “Pada” stores. If you enter through the back door of Siam Square One Shopping Center, there are nearly ten vintage bag shops, including a “Numlon Shop” on the right, and a large row of vintage shops on the left: “Nano Brandname”, “Sold Fast Market”, etc.
Here, almost all major brands such as LV, Hermès, Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, Celine, Loewe, etc. can be found, and they are in good condition and the price are relatively acceptable. However, Thais are more casual in opening their shops, so everyone must be prepared in advance before you go to the Vintage Bags Store in Bangkok.
Opening hours: 10: 00–22: 00
Address: 388 Rama I Rd, Pathum Wan, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok 10330
