By far our favourite place to find vintage clothing is Portobello road vintage clothing market. Located in the heart of Notting Hill, if you are after anything vintage this is the place. The closest tube station to the market is Ladbroke Grove station however getting the tube to Notting Hill station and walking down the street towards Ladbroke Grove is a lovely way to experience the whole area. We have our own stall at the market under the canopy where we bring new stock weekly and attend every Saturday and Sunday. For more information on this head to Visit Portobello.
Brick lane market or as many people call it, the vintage mecca, is located on the opposite side of London in East. To get to this market you should get the tube to Liverpool Street and walk over. On the first floor you will find a maize of different foods from every culture imaginable. Across from there are a range of vintage clothing stalls and jewellery. But down the stairs is where the vintage magic really happens. If you can imagine it and its vintage then its down there. With hundreds of boutiques and stalls to choose from, you could pretty mucks spend all day down there. Visit Brick Lane Vintage Market for more information.
