These Retro Camper Vans In Seattle Turn Into Secret Malls Every Weekend
It's a top spot for vintage shopping in USA too. 🛍️
Coffee, rain, seafood, and the mountains all come to mind when you think of Emerald City. But did you know that it's also a top destination for vintage shopping in the U.S.? If you love finding one-of-a-kind treasures, and "popping tags" as they say, these Seattle vintage stores should be high on your list, not only for what you'll find there but because it's an experience in itself.
A particular location on Airport Way South turns into a massive flea market, the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, every weekend, year-round.
What makes it memorable? You won't find plastered-wall, multi-storeyed shops here. Instead, you'll find retro airstreams with the most curious objects spilling out of them.
Whether you're in the market for a Ouija board, '80s music posters, an Italian scarf, succulents, jewelry, or home decor that'll quickly become the most talked-about object at your next house party, this spot has everything.
You can also go on a blind date with a used book, meaning you'll get to pick books with no idea of what they are!
It was recently named one of the top spots for vintage shopping in the U.S. too, and you'll have to stop by to see just why.
Entry is free, and you even get two hours of free parking to check out the hidden treasures here.
Since it's a community of independent artists, makers, and collectors, it's home to vendors like Time Machine West, Royal Mansion Gallery, Altar Girls, Shrub, Thrush Designs, Moda B. Vintage, The Coy Hyena, and X.
If you decide walking through this treasure trove worked up your appetite, you can also pop by Low Rider Baking to getstuffed with cheesecakes or brownies.
Then, stroll through the rest of the neighborhood and discover hidden breweries, graphic novel stores, and even a pinball arcade.
Unlike, even if you aren't into thrift shopping, we still believe this is one for the books.
Ed Sheeran certainly thought so when he reportedly shot his Shape Of You video here. *winks.*
