Vintage and Antique shopping in Prague

2 minutes to read

Are you visiting Prague anytime soon, and trying to escape the traditional tourist traps, souvenirs, and mainstream shops? If yes, Prague has plenty to offer when it comes to vintage shopping, antiques, and purchasing of unique items. 

Boho Vintage Concept Store

Boho Vintage Concept Store located in Vrsovice- a district of Prague, lies south-east from the River Vltava and Old Town. Boho Vintage offers a wide range of items for those who love the Bohemian lifestyle. At first, the store was more of a pop-up concept selling vintage and retro fashion, accessories for the home as well as its very own designs, made by the owner, Patricia. With their pop-up concept, the store allows anyone to explore new creations, and of course, present their work as part of an installation.

Today, items sold at Boho, include jewelry, candles, furniture, and many more things. As the owner would explain, Boho is not just a store like any other vintage store. It represents a particular lifestyle and gives each item a soul of its own.  

Don’t forget to make a stop also at the Boho Café, which has a stunning cozy interior, with a very unique style, where you can treat yourself with anything from wine, cocktails, and coffee, to a fresh assortment of food.

Paty Element

Paty Element, which translates into "Fifth Element," is a second-hand store in the neighborhood of Holesovice. Holesovice is located in Prague’s 7th district, northeast of Charles Bridge. Paty Element is a really unique shop with all sorts of traditional folk and theatre costumes. If for some reason you need to dress up for a particular occasion, or you need a traditional shirt from Tyrol for example, this is the perfect place to purchase it.

Antique Ahasver

And finally on to the antiques; I guess this is a bit of a "hate it or love it" topic. Antique Ahasver is located in Mala Strana, just across the Charles Bridge. This place is extraordinary and unique, and it will make you feel like you traveled back in time. You will be able to find all sorts of items and accessories that resemble your grandma’s house; linen, dresses (including wedding dresses), items for the kitchen, and other kinds of decoration. This shop might be heaven on earth for the collectors amongst you, but also a place to buy something rather authentic as a gift or for your own house.

Antique Andrle

When you are wandering around Prague’s old town, try to make a quick stop at Antique Andrle. This is not your typical clothes and accessories antique shop, but rather a place that sells vintage stuff, such as Moser glass. Moser glass is very famous worldwide, due to its design and quality. It has its origins in Karlovy Vary, where you can find the Moser Glassworks museum and learn about its history.
