Where can you buy some pre-loved threads in Greater Manchester?

This will be a two-part piece, we will focus on vintage threads this week, whereas next week, we will look at newer threads from indie stores. In the meantime, check out our list of picks and their lockdown services below, including their delivery and click and collect services

Again, you can contact these places directly on their social media outlets, or if you are old school, ring them up, and they will be happy to help you whilst you help them. These picks sell pre-loved and reworked threads for all genders.

20th Century Stores 

This place is worth a visit when everything re-opens, it is like a tardis for vintage lovers, but they do sell some amazing clothes, shoes and jewellery. Contact them here for specific information on certain vendors.

This was a very difficult piece to put together, as there are very few vintage clothing stores that operate online. Most of these places would depend on their stores being open. Nevertheless, that isn’t stopping this small cohort of stores from operating during the pandemic. That one North Face puffa could cover a couple of days’ rent for these places. 

If you are a vintage clothing store in Greater Manchester, which is operating during the lockdown, get in touch with us!

When Bozza announces plans about the re-opening of “non-essential stores”, we will provide a much more cohesive list of stores for you to check out, not only in Greater Manchester but in Liverpool, Yorkshire, and Birmingham way too.
