      Attend garage sales and estate sales. People running garage and estate sales are often trying to get rid of old items, especially clothes, and are willing to sell them for very little. As older people typically owned the items for sale at an estate sale, it's very likely that the clothes in their closet were there for years or even decades, representing any number of previous fashion eras.

      Sell or trade your retro vintage clothing to vintage clothing stores. These stores typically get their items from people selling or trading clothes and accessories to them. As well, most stores offer a deal for clothes they buy from you, such as 60 percent off in store credit or 30 percent off in cash, so taking the store credit option gives you a bigger discount when purchasing retro vintage clothing from them.
