I recently shared my favourite spots to buy second hand and vintage in London on my Instagram, but as I myself am an avid google addict, I thought it was only appropriate to share the joy on the blog as well. Below are my favourite places to shop when it comes to vintage an secondhand in London. I have also listed a bonus spot for vintage furniture.
Vintage - Retromania
The best spot for vintage is East London right? Wrong! The east is a tourist trap and whilst its not bad, its not the best. The best is the hidden gem, Retromania in Victoria. The prices are reasonable and each tag tells you about the items origin era. Think old school Dior and Armani in the plenty.
Second hand - Royal Trinity Hospice shops
So for this its not one specific shop but several different ones of the same chain. The chain is Royal Trinity Hospice. My favourite ones are the one in Victoria and on Kings road but they all have the same aesthetic which is boutique feel. Items are displayed nicely and neatly, and the whole place feels very clean.
Furniture - Alfies market
For those who want original furniture Alfies market is the go to place. This place is a giant warehouse so make sure you go when you have a lot of time on your hands.
