‘It’s like walking into grandmother’s attic!’ shrieks an American girl as she crosses the threshold of this Portobello Road stalwart. We think she was referring to the Aladdin’s cave layout of this treasure filled shop. 1920s beaded dresses dangle from the ceiling, psychedelic ‘60s garments are hung so high that you need a step ladder to reach them, while pulling back a rack of fur coats (£350-£750) we wondered if we might find ourselves stumbling into Narnia. If you’re a bit of a magpie or enjoy a rummage in a jumble sale you’ll love sifting here but while the shop lacks a high end boutique layout, it does carry high end prices – a factor that doesn’t seem to deter tourists buying Chanel handbags at £1600 a pop.
