boutique style shopping has quite a reputation in the East End especially around Brick Lane. There is however a new kid on the block, Blitz Vintage Department Store which boasts a huge amount of space located in an old Victorian Warehouse over two floors. It’s impressively decked out and full of on-trend handpicked, affordable vintage clothing, reclaimed furniture and eccentricities alongside records, books, bikes, luggage and much more. What’s more on close inspection the gear is decent, there are no bobbles, ill fitting numbers, loose threads or stains. It’s the cream of the crop and doesn’t smell like your nana’s loft either.

Relax on a small sofa, browser through the books and have yourself a coffee, mocha, choca, mozzarella, tea strained banana leave cuppa soup or whatever crazy coffee’s are being served in East London these days. Definitely one of the better vintage clothing stores around.

Blitz Vintage Department Store,
55-59 Hanbury Street E1
