Win a £50 spending spree on all fashion and accessories at Truc!

It’s been a long time coming, but we have finally turned the corner into spring – time to spruce up your wardrobe with some unique vintage fashion and frippery.

To help you on your way, Truc is offering Vintage Guide to London readers the exclusive chance to win a £50 spending spree on all fashion and accessories!

Truc is an online boutique, specialising in vintage, retro and secondhand fashion and accessories, as well as gifts and individual pieces for the home.

The name Truc means ‘thingummy’ or ‘whatsit” in French. It’s used to refer to all kinds of things, which sums up the philosophy behind Truc. Owner Lindsey Jones explained. “Ultimately we offer ‘beautiful old things’ of varying kinds. There are only two criteria: Firstly, they must be old or pre-loved and secondly, they must be gorgeous, unique or interesting.”

Among the treasures to be discovered are Italian and Scandinavian art glass pieces, retro kitchen and barware, quirky table lamps and vintage books. For catwalk conscious vintage lovers, there are regularly updated special collections, each curated with a nod to the season’s key trends. Fashion stories for SS13 include a tribute to eye-popping colour in the Pantone Reverence collection.


When we asked Lindsey why she set up Truc, she told us, “I saw an opportunity to provide a more trend-inspired and edited range of products. So rather than scanning through hundreds of products to find the hidden gem, I wanted customers to feel that we’d done the hard work for them. You’ll only find things on Truc that I’d be proud to wear myself or have in my own home.”

Receive regular updates and new product highlights by liking Truc on Facebook.
