Vintage Shops

Jeg selv er en person som liker vintage/ retro ting og er ofte på market i Thailand.

Jeg fant en liste som jeg legger ut for andre antikk friker.

Bangkok's Best Vintage Shops



230/1-2 Ekkamai Soi 11, 02-392-2704-5. Open daily 10am-6pm
Randomly arranged, the secondhand furniture here is mostly imported from
England but also comes from other European countries. Apart from the retro home pieces, they also have old vinyl records and collectibles such as antique figurines and old postal stamps.



11-12 A, 34 Ekkamai Soi 21, 02-711-5500. Open daily 11-1am
This two-story pub, restaurant and art gallery has a retro vibe. You can play pool, listen to some old tunes and buy a couch all in one visit. The place serves Thai-inter food like foie gras and baked snow fish. Recently opened, another two-unit space just across the street in Soi Cham Chan stocks more vintage furniture for sale.


Shades of Retro

Soi Thararom 2, between Thong Lor Soi 18 and 20, 081-824-8011. Open daily 3pm-1am
Another great option, especially if you’re looking for a combined chilling and vintage retail therapy session after dinner around Thong Lor, sipping a bottle of beer while listening to world music, surrounded by old school surfboards, Vespas, and vintage pianos. Most of the collectibles are up for sale with prices starting from B1,000.





Old Samyan Market, Chula Soi 50, 081-647-7371, Open Mon, Wed, Fri 6:30-9:30pm and Sat 4-8pm.
The owner of this shop, Boy, buys his rare photo-focused toys from eBay and showcases his finds on the shelves in his white-painted shop. His collection ranges from brand new lomo cameras to an old Polaroid EE-100 for B6,500. If you prefer not to fight the prime-time Bangkok traffic, online shopping is also available through his website, with an extra B100 for delivery.


Siam TLR

Room 31, 11/F Mercury Tower, opposite Central Chitlom, 081-431-0351. Open daily 11am-7pm
Vintage camera lovers will swoon over the rare classic twin lens, single lens, rangefinder, half frame, folding and box cameras at Siam TLR. Panorama, Polaroid, ancient lomo cameras and expired films are also here in abundance. Most of their gems are still working, but some are only for collecting, like the 1930s Vigilant Six-20 Junior Model D by Kodak (B3,500). The owner is pretty generous with his advice and also offers a cheap rental service (with deposit) at prices from B300-600. Apart from cameras, his tube radios and telephones are also well worth a look.




Cocue Basics

1/F, Baan Ekamai, Ekkamai Soi 21, 02-711-4783. Open daily 1-9:30pm
Ten years ago, Cocue managed to kick the local fashion scene up a notch by doing inter looks when everyone else was going for cute and girly. Although the Siam Square outlet does have some great garments, we’re bigger fans of their new warehouse at Baan Ekamai which feels like a secondhand clothing store in Brick Lane, London. Our tip: the real vintage treasures are in the back, where you can find old military jackets, vintage dresses and classic pairs of jeans.


Chao Chan

1/F, Park Lane, 081-833-3655. Open daily 11am-10pm
Founder and owner Pu, has been a fashion enthusiast since a very early age. After working in broadcasting for 17 years, this chatty and amiable fellow decided to leave the media world behind and do what he’d always been passionate about—antique furniture and fashion. The shop focuses on secondhand U.S. import Ralph Lauren shirts (starting from B800), rare Levi’s jeans from the 50s, and tailor-made leather shoes.



Ekkamai Soi 10 (next to Happy Monday), 083-906-0767. Open Mon-Sat 10am-10pm
Recently opened, VTG was co-founded by JJ market’s What’s Vintage, Hello Stranger and Ti from Happy Monday. The store is home to shirts and old polos, as well as a smaller selection of sneakers and accessories. Prices range from B500 to B10,000. We uncovered some rare concert t-shirts and old Levi’s dolls that the owners, alas, are disinclined to part with. Oddly enough, they also do a hair-cutting service, for B400-500.


Bangklyn Project

Opposite Siam Square Soi 1
Pi Pae, the owner of Bangklyn Project is considered by many to be the lead mover and shaker in the vintage fashion world. His devotees say that whatever he wears today is what we can expect to see cluttering the streets and stalls in the next two years. He personally hunts down quality vintage fabrics from the US, mainly New York, and then adapts the material into his own designs. His custom-made products are mostly shirts embodying a contemporary minimalist, yet vintage. The shop also does sunglasses, shoes and jeans. (Check out his interview here).


Him & Her

1/F, Baan Ekamai, Ekkamai Soi 21, 087-644-2169. Open daily 1-9:30pm
At this baan-baan lcommunity mall, there is a little closet hidden by the staircase showcasing both new and secondhand fashion gems. The shop is co-owned by the young Thai celeb Ploi Horwang, and, her bold style is what you’re going to get out of that cupboard. It’s a shame that this store is set to shut down soon, but you can still check out their cool stock on Facebook, or take a trip to the Launderette Offline Market (23/6 Sukhumvit Soi 36) the first weekend of every month.


Again & Again

Room B1A, Market Place, Thong Lor Soi 4, 089-486-5359. Open Mon 11am-8pm, Tue-Sun 11am-9pm
Unlike other more ragged-looking vintage clichés, Again & Again is the It shop to hook you up with more hi-so vogue. Glittery dresses, shirts, and selections of great quality skirts and pants are arranged nicely by colors on the racks. Buying online is very popular among the shop’s fans and new stock comes in twice a week. Although their girly vintage outfits are the focus, they do have shirts, jackets and shoes for men too. Prices range from B590-20,000.


(Un)fashion Vintage Collection

Ekkamai Soi 10, Next to Happy Monday, 02-726-9592. Open Mon-Sat noon-9pm
Hundreds of leather shoes line the red-bricked walls, compelling passersby to just pop-in for a look. All the shoes are shiny, well-cleaned and well-curated with a clear sense of style. Most of the shoes are imported from Italy and date back from the 1970s, while the oldest pair ever stocked in the shop was from 1930. Prices aren’t heart attack-worthy and range from only B380-5,000. Note that new stock comes in every Wednesday.

Videre besøkte jeg foregående helg dette markedet.

Talad Rot Fai - Bangkok's Retro Lovers

Omtale her.

Anbefalt video

Markedet starter på Lørdag kl 1600 og er utover natten.
Søndag kl 1600 og utover kvelden.

Problemer med dette markedet:

Parkering er helt håpløst og selgerene tar priser som er helt utrolige. Grunnen er at personene som selger på dette markedet kjenner til hva "faranger " er villige til å betale .

Det er flere "faranger" som er her for å nyte kvelden med en kald øl. Men det er mye å kikke på for en retro elskende person.

Jeg kikket på en lysekrone og fikk prisen på 75 000 baht. Jeg lo svært godt av dette.
Da jeg neste dag kikket innom homepro var prisen for en helt ny lampe av samme størrelse rundt 7500 baht.

Altså er markedet priset opp noe helt vanvittig.

Videre kikket jeg påe en jukebox og fikk prisen på 65 000 baht. Etter sjekk på nettet fant jeg ut at man kan kjøpe dette fra:



Jeg selv ønsker å ha en slike sak i leiligheten.

Og dette ble solgt på markedet Talad Rot Fai. Men her er prisen skrudd opp til "farange pris".

Så hvis du besøker dette markedet, vær obs på at du kan bli lurt.

Videre finnes det flere som vet å ta seg betalt.

JJ Mall finnes det en butikk som heter THINGS.

legger webside ut her.

Her selges det mange kule ting. Blandt annet selges det en bensinpumpe som er omgjort til kjøleskap.
Pris for dette kjøeskapet er 95000 baht.

Siden er blitt hacket . Antagelig er det en sint kunde som har oppdaget at prisene er skrudd opp noe helt vanvittig.

Butikken har flere slike radioer.
