Where once the cavernous Anxi Market was the only place to find vintage gems, Shanghai's retro scene is now blossoming, with more vintage boutiques and pop ups opening up throughout the city.

Time Out presents five of the best vintage boutiques and markets in Shanghai where you can shop for unique pieces, second hand items and one-of-a-kind retro fashions, accessories and jewellery from the 1920s-1980s, as well as army surplus supplies for the guys.

Lolo Love Vintage

The third location from the undisputed queen of Shanghai's vintage scene, Lolo's sprawling space is dripping with nostalgic glamour with kitsch trinkets, such as typewriters and toy dolls filling classic armoires, while standout pieces adorn mannequins or decorate the walls. The plentiful rails of retro stock here are the fruits of stylist Lolo's sourcing from Los Angeles, with a new focus on the 20--40s period. Read more

Lolo Love Vintage 2 Yongfu Lu, Wuyuan Lu.

Annata Vintage

Annata's small but well-edited collection spans the 1940s-1980s, with many items handpicked during trips to Istanbul, Trieste, Amsterdam and London's Brick Lane. Lining the walls are rails of tea-dresses (from 250RMB), embellished denim jackets and funky print shirts (each item is neatly labelled with the decade to which it belongs), while shelves groan with cage coin purses (50-60RMB), cats'-eye sunglasses and costume jewellery.

Annata Vintage 316 Jianguo Xi Lu, near Xiangyang Nan Lu.

William The Beekeeper

One of the 50 best shops in Shanghai, this charming, cluttered space appeals for its alluring mix of high-end yet affordable second-hand clothing (gorgeous retro dresses go for around 300RMB) and local indie designers like punk jeweller Josie Chen, Snoozer Loser and in-house label Kaileeni.

William The Beekeeper 84 Fenyang Lu, near Fuxing Lu.

Anxi Market

One of Shanghai's original vintage treasure troves, a rummage round this sprawling second-hand clothing market never fails to yield some dirt cheap retro gems. Stalls come crammed with kitsch jumpers (think ski patterns or '80s cartoon prints) and classic coats C all for a tenth of the price of many vintage boutiques in town. Read more

Anxi Market 1335 Anshun Lu, near Kaixuan Lu.

No 3975

An army checkpoint sign above the cash desk sets the tone at No 3975, while the whitewashed walls are adorned with black chain-link panels hung with all manner of military bags, from canvas duffles to first aid kit boxes and leather tripod cases--this shrine to military memorabilia is strictly one for the boys.

No 3975 Lane 39, Shaanxi Nan Lu, near Xinle Lu.
