Circus is owned by Binkie and Tabitha (perfect names for vintage shop owners, in our opinion) who pedal a lovely brand of flotsam and jetsam for the body and home. Artsy glassware and vintage vases are juxtaposed with an array of Socialist literature and old enamel trays, while the odd lacy dress is hung up from the walls for your trying on pleasure. The clothes offering is currently expanding, and just in is punky-but-pretty label Minus Sun. For the male of the species, there is a ‘Man Corner’ for more masculine buys.
Circus is number 62 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.

Great shop for unusual present plus things to spoil yourself and a great idea having a shop mad of cardboard Binkie and Tabitha make whol experience of shopping a fantastic pleasure
Another great local shop, cool owners and staff, ultra friendly even to drunken and disorderly locals. The place seems to have provided me with lots of lovely pottery and glass wear.
