The Bulk Vintage warehouse is a 10,000 sq. ft. heaven-on-earth for vintage lovers, just 10 minutes from downtown Philadelphia, stocked with 1000s upon 1000s of items for wholesale buyers. A very conservative estimate would be an inventory of at least 200,000 graded and sorted pieces at all times.
The address is 2438 Coral St., Philadelphia, PA 19125
During the summer it can get VERY HOT in here. We run the fans, but there is no A/C. If you are heat sensitive, please consider coming on a cooler day. Otherwise please dress for the heat, and bring water. On extremely hot days (over 90 for a few days), we may change our hours, or even close. Call before you come down, or check our facebook for updates.
Our wholesale inventory dates from the 1930s - 1990s. We do not offer thrift or modern clothing.
The warehouse is broken down into mens and womens vintage and further into categories (dresses, shirts, pants, jackets, etc..), and then into subcategories. For example while "dresses" is a certain grade, it is broken down further into: 1950s dresses, 1960s-1970s dresses, 1970s sexy/slinky poly dresses, 1980s cotton dresses, floral cotton dresses, etc...
We have over 250 grades, and 300 large boxes filled to overflowing with graded and sorted vintage.
Our price list mirrors our sorting system: Winter 2014 Price List
The warehouse is open to the public every MONDAY AND SATURDAY, from 12-6. On public days there is no minimum purchase, and no appointment needed. Just c'mon in! We accept payment by cash and credit card (plus a 3% service fee).
Children are not allowed (due to insurance restrictions). We do not have an accessible restroom on public days, but there is a wonderful indie coffee shop just 1 short block away. There are no dressing rooms- (this is a warehouse intended for dealers who dont need to try items on). We have mirrors, so you can just try items on over your clothes.
We have a "no backpacks/large bags" policy. This is because folks are stealing. And its ridiculous that we have to punish the whole class, but its a lesson you learned in the 2nd grade.
NO LARGE BAGS. This includes purses larger than a shoebox.
You will be asked to leave the bag up front and WE WILL NOT WATCH IT FOR YOU. We are giving you fair warning not to bring the bag at all, but if you do, it is not our responsibility to keep an eye on it for you.
Leave your bag in your car. Don't have a car? Don't bring the bag- simple as that.
PRIVATE APPOINTMENTS are available Tuesday thru Friday. There is a $300 minimum purchase for all private appointments. If this is your first appointment with us, we require $300 cash to be paid when you arrive. This is of course deducted from your total. If you're not sure you can find $300 worth of items in here, then a private appointment is not best for you- please come on a public day instead.
During an appointment we can pull our extra inventory for you, so appointments are great for quantity buyers such as: dealers, stylists, costumers, designers, etc.. We do not double-book, so when you have a private appointment, you will be the only buyer there.
IF there is no appointment scheduled, then we might open to the public on a random day, but you must call ahead! Don't just show up and knock (we won't even answer the door).
Call 215-425-4166. Even if you are standing at our front door- CALL!
We constantly add fresh inventory for you to dig through.
Children under 10 are NOT allowed in the warehouse!
