2...Good As New

This little vintage shop, Birds Dress Agency/Good as New, is an Aladdin's cave of handbags, shoes, clothes, hats- you name it, it is there, for both girls and boys alike. I have spent many hours sifting through boxes of broaches and scarves, rail upon rail of skirts and shirts, and shelf after shelf of shoes.

Each piece is different, after all it is a vintage shop, some pieces require a very extravagant owner whilst others are very demure and understated. I have left this shop, more than once, with a beautiful new find or two tucked under my arm.

The lady who owns the shop is very friendly and helpful, which is a good thing too as there is so much to see, it can be a little overwhelming.

My most recent find was this amazing clutch. It can hold so many things, perfect for a night out. It has no label in it, I have no idea who designed it, but whoever you are, I thank you.


If you are planning a trip for a designer diamond of a find, take note of the stores opening times and allow yourself plenty of time to browse at all the vintage goodies.
