12 Search Terms We Can't Stop Using for Our Online Vintage Shopping

We Who What Wear editors are pretty lucky to have some of the best shopping resources right on our team. Sure, we may compliment a co-worker’s new purchase or even buy something at her suggestion, but in case you didn’t know, we also have vintage-shopping savants in our midst—and it’s time we spill some secrets.

In case you’re not especially savvy when it comes to shopping vintage or consignment online, let us assure you that words matter, specifically search terms. What you type into the search bar of any given resale site can hugely affect the results and thus your ability to find a gem. With this in mind, we asked the team to share the search terms—some super specific, some general—that are helpful to cut through the clutter and uncover the good stuff. Take a look below and then adapt these terms for your own online treasure hunts.
