The Best Vintage Subscription Boxes: Clothing, Jewelry, Candy, Oh My!

Updated by Timothy Paradis

Sometimes the past is better than the present. Whether it’s the music, fashion, games or catchphrases, the retro and vintage lifestyle keeps you looking back. Whoever came up with the saying “out with the old, and in with the new” has definitely got it backwards!

For some vintage lovers, it’s all about nostalgia and memories of days gone by. For others, it’s a love for things that are offbeat and one-of-a-kind. In the days of fast fashion, vintage clothing offers the chance to escape to another time, stand out from the crowd and make more sustainable choices. Retro monthly subscription boxes cover a swathe of interests, making it easy to find a treat for yourself or the perfect gift for a vintage-loving friend.
