Mixing vintage with high-street clothing is the key to being trendy as well as sustainable.

We also sell a selection new clothing from local talented designers from gorgeous kimono’s to lovely tailored coats. We also sell a large selection of hats & accessories. We want to offer you something completely unique, so you can ‘trot til you drop’ feeling a million dollars.

We are so into recycling & making something old or just ‘Plain Jane’ into something spectacular, to enable you to update some of your own clothes, we sell some great add-ons & haberdashery that you can add to your garment to completely change it. We also hold regular workshops to show you how you can learn to be creative with your own clothes, before an inspiring ‘Sewing Bee’.

Our aim is to share some ‘old school glamour’, we love what we do and want you to experience Bristol’s best kept secret, and embrace our motto, ‘Lifestyle a’ la Mode’.
