London is perfect for Vintage Lovers. When in certain areas there is a Vintage Shop on every corner. I will show you a selection of shops where you can make bargains and find Vintage treasures. Let’s start in Notting Hill – I love this neighbourhood, but not only for shopping. It is quiet, residential and has lots of nice restaurants and shops. The Merchant Archive on Kensington Park Road is the first shop that I will show you. What I like about this store is that it does not smell like a vintage shop- they do sometimes smell a little funny. The Merchant definitely does not – in fact it smells really good in here which is created by the scented candles they sell as well. Their home interior section is really pretty as well a their own Merchant Archive Line. You can also get Karen Walker and The Row Sunglasses. But now you probably want to know where the Vintage is? Well it is downstairs in a separate corner and here you can find silk tunics by Oscar de la Renta or sequinned dresses by Missoni – 100% Vintage of course. This boutique is a good mix of new and old fashion items, you will find stylish and unique pieces that will stand out.
