Where to shop Vintage clothing in Lisbon - Madame Surto Estrela

Where to find the best vintage and second-hand shops in Lisbon (2024)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Second-hand or vintage shopping is always fun in Lisbon. There’s the thrill of not knowing what you’ll find, the highs and lows of finding something does (or doesn’t) fit, the feel-good fact that you’re stopping an item from going to landfill, and that you’re filling your wardrobe with ethical options over fast fashion. 

There are at least a dozen reasons why I love second-hand shopping at thrift stores, charity shops, and vintage boutiques – and Lisbon is a great place to be if you’re looking for vintage clothing and second-hand accessories. Here’s my comprehensive guide to vintage and second-hand shopping in Lisbon.

Thrift shops and charity stores in Lisbon

Humana

Locations across Lisbon (and Porto)

Looking for a classic thrift store or charity shop in Lisbon? Head to Humana. There are a dozen stores across the city selling second-hand clothing, shoes, accessories and home textiles. On the racks you’ll mostly find high-street brands, but they do have a section with quality labels, usually near the counter. Humana also has a couple of separate Humana Vintage stores, which offer lower prices than traditional vintage clothing shops. Humana dedicates 100% of its store profits to its social mission. I’ve pinned all the Humana stores as green in the map at the bottom.

Tip: also look for Humana Vintage stores. The stock is not cheap, but usually cheaper than vintage stores and all profits go back to Humana’s projects.

Note: Charity shops are a limited concept in Portugal. There is another charity called Remar, but they mostly deal with furniture – I can’t recommend them for clothing.

Second-hand consignment and clothing stores

POP Closet

Chiado

Buy, sell and trade your clothes at POP Closet. This sustainable fashion project is one of the best vintage shops in Lisbon. The store offers a curated selection of second-hand clothing and accessories from the 80s on at its small store in Chiado. The shop brands itself as a second-hand fashion consignment store, and on the door it lists labels like Adidas, Burberry, Carhartt, Prada, Nike, Marc Jacobs, Kenzo and Gucci. What you’ll find within the slow fashion store really depends on the day, but it’s a great space to browse with items for all budgets.

Drop in to find timeless pieces and give unwanted clothing another chance at decent prices. A percentage of sales goes to the Rotary charity.

Vintage clothing stores in Lisbon

A Outra Face da Lua

Baixa

A Outra Face da Lua might just be top of my favourite vintage shops in Lisbon. I always love coming in here – the shop is big and spacious, the clothing is organised and rainbow-coordinated. The displays are cute and the selection of clothing from the 60s to 90s is wide. The store, which has been open in the downtown area since 2005, often gets shipments of certain clothing, so sometimes you’ll walk in to find 50 vintage kilts, while another time it will be all about vintage sports blazers.

Madame Surtô

Estrela

At this gem of a Lisbon vintage store most things are sold by weight. From feminine and frilly 80s dresses to loud Hawaiian shirts and leather jackets, this vintage clothing boutique has it all – and charges by weight. Each item is tagged with a colour so you can guess the price. At the back you’ll find knick-knacks and second-hand collectables too.

Ás de Espadas

Baixa & Chiado

The owners behind this shop, Tiago Andrade and Bruno Lopes, have been in the vintage game for more than a decade. One of the first to open in Lisbon, there are now two Ás de Espadas (Ace of Spades) and they also run Heartcore, Zip Gum, newJester and Sons of the Silent Age (more on those below). A super passionate shop attendant showed me some of the beautiful snakeskin and crocodile vintage handbags in stock and went into detail about how each piece in their shops get meticulously cleaned, a process that sometimes takes months. 

The original Ás de Espadas is focused on fashion from the 60s and 70s. Inside find busts holding vintages hats, scarves and accessories alongside floaty feminine dresses, velvet shirts, leather everything and plenty of puffs and frills. There are two locations – the one on Calçada do Carmo is just women’s clothing, while the Rua da Conceição vintage boutique has men’s and women’s items.

Heartcore Vintage Clothing

Chiado

Venture upstairs into a rabbit warren of rooms all neatly packed with high-quality, clean vintage clothing from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Expect to find a huge selection of Hawaiian shirts, sporting jerseys, blazers and sports jackets, plaid shirts, denim jeans and military items. The downtown location makes this one of the best vintage shops in Lisbon.

If you like to shop vintage clothing by the kilo, you’ll love rummaging through this little Lisbon shop tucked away on a downtown backstreet in Baixa. Prices seem to vary between €13 and €39 per kilo, and you can find the usual unusual mix of vintage and second-hand streetwear, denim, coats, pleated dresses, colourful sweaters and accessories.

Amor Fati

Martim Moniz

This cute little vintage store popped up in the heart of Lisbon in the final month of 2023. Amor fati is a Latin phrase that means “love of fate” – and perhaps you’ll think it’s fate when you find something that was meant to be your stacked neatly on its racks.

On a side street near Parliament, this small vintage shop sports a very curated aesthetic. It’s open seven days and stocks a very preppy assortment of ’90s and ’00s-vibe vintage – think sports jackets, denim galore, and Guess handbags.

Malala Vintage Lisboa

Graça

London native KB launched her vintage project back in 2020, but the store only gained a permanent address in early 2023. Within the walls you can find a curated selection of vintage, with everything from luxury designer pieces to budget-friendly shirts. I’ve become slightly obsessed with Malala’s Instagram page, where KB shares videos with mini collections of new vintage. Her dog Elio, the miniature wookie, might be in store too.
