What kind of second hand can be found in Riga?
Interestingly enough, Riga has a wide selection of secondhand shops, vintage and retro stores, with from outside of Latvia to be found as well as local gems. This can make the city perfect for locating objects from a wide platform, so don’t expect to only find Soviet junk! There is a big selection of items from pre 1940’s, when we are looking at the antique side of things. If you are lucky, you may even find some great Art Nouveau items. Second hand shops tend to have more recent clothing but are great for very old books. Antique stores vary in their selection but you can find everything from old Soviet posters to paintings from th distant past. If you like ceramics, these stores can be a gold mine of kitchy pieces to fill your kitchens with back home!
This tour is great for any Second hand, Retro or Vintage lover. Clothes, music, money, military, interior, jewelry, books, etc, we have got the lot. If you want to get to know the city, this is a great option to jump right in. During all this searching, we might have time to drop into a retro bar for some light refreshments. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
