This charmingly old-fashioned shop, open for over fifty years and tucked behind Southgate tube, sells a wonderful array of haberdashery, fancy dress and dancewear. The knowledgeable shop assistants will have your little one kitted out in the perfect ballerina outfit in no time (they cover all dance genres including tap). As well as stocking all manner of trimmings, the higgledy-piggledy haberdashery department has a good range of child friendly fabrics including garishly-coloured fake furs and fuzzy felts. The front of the shop is home to cheap and cheerful selection of fancy dress, monsters masks and cake decorations. North London parents, don't throw a kids' party without popping in first.

I had been introduced to Rodwins, many many years ago, by my mother to encourage me to take up an interest, and should it so turn out, I am still a regular customer (happily and without my mother she has health problems now and much older than me) from 2005-2015 and long may it continue onwards.

I remmeber an instance, when I happened to have arrived in, that there were two brand new Saturday girls, and one of them who recognised me by sight on the bus I was on locally, just happened to have been in on another Saturday occasion I was visiting the store, and now i have communication difficulties, always willing to rise above my problems of communication, jumped in on the act whilst I was busily preparing to speak to be served by the Saturday Girl number 1 at the Front Till Desk, meanwhile, she jumped in, and served me, and I'm thinking, I'm receiving first class service here. I am seemingly aware that there is a change of juniors now, I'll never forget happily, that occasion.

I am a versitile character ranging from knitting, through to cross stitching, however, cross stitching work is more my strong interest, than knitting.          

I wish all of Rodwins Team, well in their future Rodwins Shop endeavours, and long may it continue.


Brilliant shop with an array of costumes and props as well as dance wear,paints and lots more at affordable prices. Fancy dress costumes are very reasonable - cheaper than many websites!
