Our Story Where It Began Vintage Clothing Store History

Unearth Vintage is a family owned and operated small business. We're first generation immigrants from Eastern Europe, our parents immigrated to the United States when we were in our adolescent years. Thrifting and affordable vintage clothing are two things we have always been passionate about.

Unearth Vintage started as a passion project that naturally turned into a business. We started selling at flea markets in NYC +10 years ago. Next, we opened our first pop up as Arbor Vitae Vintage on Metropolitan Ave and then a storefront on Bedford Ave in Williamsburg, Brooklyn from 2015-2021. In October 2021 we opened Unearth Vintage, a pop up shop on Smith Street in Brooklyn NY. We're excited to continue serving the Brooklyn community in this new location! 

 

Sustainable Sourcing How We Source Vintage and Thrifted Clothing

 Thrifting is the key to scoring one-of-a-kind sustainable clothing at an affordable price, what was once old is sought-after again. Our small family-owned thrift shop is carefully curated by our owner and her mom. ❤ We hand pick our entire selection with love and our customer's thrift list requests top of mind. The majority of clothing is sourced from personal collections, raghouses, estate sales, and road trips across the US.

 

Sustainable Sourcing, What We Promise Transparency - Small Business Family Owned Vintage Store

At Unearth Vintage being ethical and sustainable has always been at the forefront of our business. We take pride in responsible sourcing, fair pricing, and accurate storytelling of the history behind each of our one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. It doesn’t stop there - we are committed to breathing new life into pieces past their prime through upcycling and repurposing salvaged materials. Our goal is to inspire people to think secondhand first by offering quality, unique items at an affordable price.
