Vintage & Retro

There is just something about vintage shops that really intrigue me. I like the idea of revamping old clothes and shoes and reselling them. it's thrifty and good for the environment. Not that I am one with nature or anything, but the concept of one man's trash is another man's treasure is appealing. 

You all know of my love for eBay, and I am not shy to admit it. If I can find something I like for a bargain price how could I say no? I think I have picked up this trait from my dad who has a huge love for car-boot sales. His thrifty ways have been passed on to me it seems. 

I was in London not too long ago and found myself in Shoreditch. It's potentially one of the coolest places to hang out and excellent for vintage hunters. I don't profess to buy many vintage pieces, but I like to browse to see if I could find anything worth purchasing. 

London is very big on the retro scene. You can honestly find a vintage shop situated across the city. Whether it's something that reminds you of the 90's or it's a piece that will take you back to the 20's. They pretty much cover the bases. 

Some of the stores I use to visit have now closed down which is a shame, but I thought I would share with you my top vintage shops that you can go and visit when you're in London:
