Vintage Emporium – Possibly the best vintage shop on Brick Lane!

July 5th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

I was wondering along Brick Lane yesterday, picking up bargains from fly pitchers, and sipping my £1 strawberry juice from a market stall, when I spotted a sign promising vintage clothes, tea and coffee. As an opportunist I find it hard not to explore and usually give every shop, night etc a chance. I am so glad that I visited this shop! Expecting the usual 80s/90s rubbish I could not have been more wrong! The newest item you can expect to find in this shop is from the 1950s! When you enter the shop on Bacon St, (just off Brick Lane) you arrive in a 40s/ 50s style kitchen offering tea, coffee and cakes, but downstairs is where you’ll find the real treats! Beautiful dresses fill the shop from pre 1920s – 1950s. They also have lovely cotton and silk shirts that would look lovely if you prefer to mix vintage with modern clothes. Overall a really stunning array of clothes, with no tacky synthetic 80s dresses in sight!

Love, PAST FORWARD RETRO

Where am I?
