A BRICK LANE GUIDE TO VINTAGE SHOPPING


If you love vintage shopping as much as I do then you're in for a treat! I visited Brick Lane again a few days ago and I'm still amazed at the amount of vintage shops there are...so many that I missed some. The Brick lane streets are busy but worth hustling through as you can find some amazing hidden gems, especially when walking down the quieter side roads. The streets are filled with food vendors and market stalls and bustling with people and no wonder why...Brick Lane is a famous London hot spot. So if you ever visit make sure to check out some of these Brick Lane vintage shops. Here's my Brick Lane guide to vintage shopping. 

THIS SHOP ROCKS
131 Brick Lane

This shop rocks is a small little shop with a downstairs that's crammed full of vintage objects such as clothing, typewriters, books, crockery, jewellery...oh the list could go on.


HOUSE OF VINTAGE
4 Chesire street

House of vintage down a little side road, was mainly full of beautiful vintage clothes and accessories such as dresses and silk scarves. The shop also has a very charming interior and a lovely stained glass window.


HUNKY DORY
226 Brick Lane

This shop is smallish but by no means less interesting. Full of the most beautiful dresses and shoes and my favourite the vintage mannequin heads with charming vintage hats up against lovely brick walls.


SEARCH & DESTROY
20 Chesire Street

Search & destroy had to be one of my most favourite vintage shops just off of Brick Lane down a little side road. The interior was blissfully charming with cacti, plants and a record player that was playing music!! A very western style feel. It also has a downstairs with changing rooms and the shop is full of new and old vintage clothing. The owner is also very lovely and helpful.


PORCELAIN & RED
5 Chesire street

Another one of my favourites...Porcelain & Red, had a beautiful haberdashery cabinet adorned with hundreds of silk scarves in all manner of different styles, patterns and colours. There is also vintage fabric, haberdashery and of course vintage dresses.


ABSOLUTE VINTAGE
15 Hanbury Street

Absolute vintage is quite a large vintage shop just of Brick Lane full of vintage clothing, accessories and my favourite retro brogue shoes.




DOWNSTAIRS VINTAGE MARKET
Brick Lane

This is another of my favourites just because of the many mini 'shops' there are and the wide range of vintage you can buy. Be careful though as some things that are sold are more retro than vintage. You can find anything from jackets to jewellery and glasses to records.




There are also some other vintage shops I didn't get a chance to list such as Blitz, Rokit 101 and my favourite camera market stall called Films Not Dead which are amazing and definitely worth a visit.

Have you ever visited Brick Lane? Do you love vintage shopping? I'd love to know!
