NileGuide Expert tip:
If you can't find what you're looking for, ask! The owners are well connected throughout the vintage fashion trade.
Vintage urban apparel from the 1980s and early 1990s, much of it rare and sought-after and all original, stock the shelves, rails and most of the floor of this magical little boutique. Flashy silk ties, thick cotton skirts, pure wool jumpers, and lovely leather handbags nurture the nostalgic while rag trade favourites like original British Fred Perry polo shirts and Dorothy Perkins shoes from the 1980s are genuine collectors' items. Other goodies of singular note are the PVC "messenger" bags and holdalls from the same era. Look closely and you'll spy a few dog-eared examples of Life
magazine dating from the '50s and '60s hidden under owl-eyed sunglasses and dozens of hats.
