Could this be London’s chic-est charity shop? With its industrial interior by Hemingway Design, art student fanbase and staff fingers firmly on the fashion pulse, Shelter’s flagship boutique can more than hold its own alongside its trendy neighbours. You’ll find quality vintage, premium labels and ‘how did I miss that the first time round?’ high-street gems, all handpicked with care but priced reasonably. Coal Drops Yard might have earned the nickname ‘Cash Drops Hard’, but your wallet’s safe here.
Best for Statement shoes and understated swagger.
Unit EV8, Coal Drops Yard, Stable St, N1C 4AB.
