40s - 6/20 - The Vintage Guide To London
Anita’s Vintage Fashion, Accessories & Textiles Fai is a perfect opportunity for anyone looking for textiles and vintage fashion from the 1800’s to the Eighties such as Sixties chiffon, Fifties dresses in fabulous prints as well as Victorian white cottons and Thirties lace and beading.
Update: The Shop has now closed down.
Just off Brick Lane is The Shop, a little vintage store you might just pass by if you’re not paying attention. And you most certainly don’t want to miss this one! Inside, the walls are covered with shelves all tightly packed with incredible vintage fabrics and textiles from the Thirties to the Seventies, while dozens of baskets are spilling out vintage scarves, aprons, tables cloths and kitchen towels.
Fat Faced Cat sells a carefully selected range of mint condition vintage for both men and women. Situated on Islington’s busy Camden Passage, the shop specialises in high-quality vintage from Edwardian boater hats to Eighties suits as well as luggage, ephemera and paper goods.
If you love the soothing treatments you can find at beauty spas but don’t like the modern styling that often follows a pampering day, you’ll be thrilled to hear about London’s first vintage spa, La Belle Jolie in Crystal Palace.
Lipstick & Curls, London’s premier vintage hair and beauty team, are now offering a mobile hair and beauty service ‘to take away’! Perfect if you want to get ready for a big night out with your friends in the comfort and convenience of your home, and ideal if you have a vintage-themed Christmas party and you and your colleagues need to get ready at the office.
