Clothing and accessories are piled up on every surface of this long, narrow shop in Chalk Farm Road, but don’t be put off by the madcap merchandising. While this store is lacking a little in presentation, the varied stock and helpful owner more than compensate. She’ll ask what you’re looking for and pull out several items for you to try on – a rare service in vintage shops. We were tempted by an immaculate ’60s A-line pure wool dress, for £25; as well as a ’70s coat suit at £30. The quality of some items is a bit hit and miss, but, with bags for £10 to £20 and tops starting at £10, prices are reasonable for the area.
