Carmen Copenhagen is one of Copenhagen’s best and oldest vintage stores nestled in Larsbjørnssstræde, where there is a young crowd and an abundance of cool stores.This particular store carries both men and women’s clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry with the funkiness of the 70’s and 80’s culture. The store occupies a charmingly musty basement with an eclectic selection of items all around. I found the most perfect silk Givenchy dress from the 70’s along with a pair of 90’s Ralph Lauren shoes. The prices are a little bit high compared to other vintage stores in Denmark but you get what you pay for in quality and style. The owner, Sasha Eisensor, has a workshop in the store, where she customizes vintage pieces. She is very welcoming and helpful to any guest visiting the store and will go above and beyond to help you find the perfect match. It’s truly a vintage treasure chest for vintage hunters visiting or living in Denmark.
