Chris White is the CEO of Shinesty, the fastest growing novelty apparel retailer in Denver (hello, Daytona Dong Sarong). When we had him on the City Cast Denver podcast last week, he told us all about his humble beginnings reselling thrift store finds, which got us wondering: Where are the best places to shop for vintage treasures in Denver?

👚 Lucas D. suggests The Ten Penny Store on South Broadway, The Fourth Place on 11th Ave., and Strawberry Mountain on Santa Fe.

  • “Too many vintage shops these days have a small selection of overpriced clothes, but these three shops are overflowing with reasonably priced threads. The staff is always friendly too.”

👖 Ben R. recommends:

  • Crossroads Trading: “Big space, lots of selection, and nice stuff!”
  • The Digging Pit: “If you’re looking for vintage Colorado sports gear, this is the place. Bonus, they have a cross-promotional deal with Denver Biscuit Company right across the street!” (Note: Their brick-and-mortar is located at 135 S Broadway, suite Z)

👞 Marilee U. enjoys The Vintage Label on 17th Street by Union Station:

  • “Beautiful upscale clothes and accessories that look just as fashionable today as ever. Carolyn is a superb merchandiser and the space is stunning.”

👗 Mary H. wants to shout out Atomic Salvage in Cap Hill:

  • “Jules is a one-woman team, and I have found some of my favorite things there, including an amazing Wrangler denim shirt that's the perfect weight, super soft, with mother-of-pearl snap buttons down the front. Chef's kiss.”
