(SPOT.ph) Metro Manila is packed with malls and shopping complexes—each filled corner to corner with endlessly stocked department stores and globally recognized retailers. While the convenience of such places cannot be denied, they often leave one longing for the quirk and quiet of neighborhood mom-and-pop shops and the unique finds they're known to house. If you're looking to refresh your shopping palate, this new vintage clothing store in Makati is one to check out: It's Vintage will take you on a trip back in time!
It's Vintage began as a series of pop-ups, the first of which opened in December of 2017. Owner and lover of vintage thrift shops Fed Pua realized in organizing these temporary store openings that there was a growing market in the Metro for people looking for the same time-worn, one-of-a-kind pieces he himself had fallen in love with. From there, he decided to put up his own standalone store of curated vintage pieces—fast forward a little over two years and you'll find it situated in Makati's bustling Legazpi village. Inside, you can browse racks upon racks of unique finds sourced from all over the world including graphic tees, colorful windbreakers, patched sports jackets, aged denim pieces, old-school jewelry, and more.
Take a peek inside the cool store and hear about the owner's insights on shopping vintage:
It's Vintage is at 2/F Planters Products, Inc. Building, 109 Esteban Street, Legazpi Village, Makati City. Open Tuesdays to Sundays, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
