Warsaw has all the shopping opportunities travelers would expect, including vintage shopping. The Kolo flea market and the Zoo market, both organized Saturday and Sunday, are real gold mines for bargain hunters. Old stamps, watches, clocks, furniture, pottery, glass, silver, paintings, prewar bathroom fixtures, vinyl records,  sculpture and rusted German helmets are only some of the thousands things you can find there.


In Cracow, the best second-hand items can be found in Kazimierz. Every weekend, the Unitard Flea Market  on Grzegorzki and the Plac Nowy flea market swarm with students, vintage shopping enthusiasts, seasoned antiques dealers, and tourists, searching for authentic pieces of Polish history. You can find there nearly everything, from weapons and army uniforms to religious souvenirs and icons.


St. Dominick’s Fair is presumably the oldest market in Poland, dating back to 1260. Organized annually at the end of July, it astounds with the multitude of antiques, works of art, regional products, silvers, chandeliers, samovars, coins and hand-made items.


While in Wroclaw, you might consider visiting the Centennial Hall area. Every last weekend of the month Wystawowa Street fills up with vendors selling antique furniture, lamps, jewelry, cutlery, china, glassware, artistic objects and paintings. And if that is not enough, check Swiebodzki Flea Market, ‘Na Mynie’ Market or one in Gnieznienska Street.


Since 1900, at weekends, Poznan Old Butchery in Garbary district turns into the largest antique fair in the city, with the antique market organized there every other week. You can also go bargain hunting in Czacz, known as the Polish capital of antiques, located some 60 kilometres of Poznan. There you can come across old Dutch furniture, bicycles, glass, china, books and the whole range of other knick-knacks.
