The Five Best Secondhand Boutiques in Miami

IMG_5101.jpg
2. Fly Boutique
Located in the heart of the ever-evolving hood of MiMo, Fly Boutique is the secondhand gold mine you've been hunting for. Think Costco-turned-vintage-retail -- it's huge and fully stocked with, well, everything, from 1960s mod furniture to vintage soccer jerseys and even Burberry trenches priced criminally low.

And here's the best part: half the store is taken up by menswear. Did you hear that, guys? We said menswear - vintage menswear! The white bamboo, high-ceilinged expanse has enough women's wear goodies to have you rummaging for days, but it's the eclectic line-up for men of Etro, Missoni, Dsquared2, and Comme des Garçons button-ups, tees, and polos that make our eyes well up with tears of joy.

Fly guys won't just be there for the racks of apparel; the store also (caters) to the life-style minded with old school gadgets like a retro Polaroid camera ('Cause who doesn't need one of those?). It's like a secondhand version of Base South Beach. And just when we thought the news couldn't get better, owner Max De Bernardi told us of the mini-flea market they put on twice a month, where ladies can pile up on $10 Gucci bags. We're not lying. You can #InstaStalk them to find out when the next one will be.

1. Back In Style
Warning: You'll pull up to the white, cottage-style house with the royal blue door, look around, and think, "Is this the spot?" Don't worry; it is. As soon as you walk up the steps that lead you to that fateful blue door, you'll realize exactly why we've guided you to this vintage treasure trove. Built in the 1920s, the cozy house-turned-boutique hoards one of the largest Emilio Pucci collections in the world.

And Pucci's not the only iconic memorabilia that lives on the wooden floors of the house. The boutique specializes in a bevvy of vintage accouterments, from slinky American Hustle-style dresses to 1950s full-skirt frocks. The gang's all there.

This boutique, however, differs from any other spot topping the list. The exclusivity of its appointment-only visits will make you feel part of your very own fashion secret society. The reason for the hush-hush behavior: "Vintage is a very personal experience," Sheffield McIntyre says. "If someone makes an appointment, then they get one-on-one styling, and then they get my knowledge of the inventory and I can look at their shape and kind of figure out what might work for them and what doesn't."

The pampered hospitality doesn't stop at private visits. The boutique also has its own in-house seamstress to make sure that bespoke number hugs in all the right places. Expect to drop an average of $100 -- pricey for some, but priceless for others.

Every time I hear vintage it basically means a over priced thrift store.
