Plonked down a street off Brick Lane, The Vintage Emporium just about stands out amid the graffiti and building work with its baby pink exterior and quaint tearoom filled with rickety furniture, bric-a-brac and cute iced cakes. Beyond the chintz, however, are some exquisite pieces of clothing, sold at a hefty price – we spotted a show-stopping beaded, ’20s silk dropwaist dress for a back breaking £950. You’re unlikely to get away with spending less than £100 here, but everything is original, rare, and very old – so you’re paying the price of scarcity.
