After all the hard work I have been doing lately working on my final collection, even a busy fashion student needs a bit of a break! On the weekend I treated myself to a little rummage through the vast piles in the Vintage Warehouse in Nottingham’s city centre.
The Vintage Warehouse is a huge space filled with piles of skirts, t-shirts, bags, shoes, coats etc for boys and girls. (The prices are so cheap! Especially compared to London vintage prices). They also offer a customising service, so that your purchase can be altered to fit you for around £5.00.
As I go so often I have become acquainted with the 2 guys that own the warehouse and sometimes they let me go downstairs into the basement for a rummage through the huge sacks of stock that their orders come in. They say that in the next year they want to turn the basement into a little coffee shop in which their customers can hang out in!
As I am graduating this summer and returning to London for good, I will be sad to leave this little gem behind. I think some trips to Nottingham shall be made purely just for the Vintage Warehouse!
