Where to shop Vintage Fashion in Liverpool

Liverpool has some great independent vintage boutiques  .

Here is a few hidden gems I love to shop in .

The Vintage Corner

A visit to the Vintage Corner based in Waterloo is a must.

Run by friends Alison and Cheryl ,you are greeted with an array of women’s vintage fashions. They always have a great choice of retro fashions and their style is very distinctive.

The Shop itself transports you back to the 60’s/70’s with its bold pops of colour on the walls ,funky furniture and a really relaxed vibe.

Alison and Cheryl are always on hand to style you and give advice on colours and shapes to suit your shape.

They also stock a Voluptuous Vintage range ,catering for sizes up to 18 (for the more curvier lady).

Prices are very reasonable and you can purchase a dress for as little as £30


.Keep an eye out for their flash sales with bargains from £5 !

Last weekend December 5th & 6th was Open Cultures Winter Arts Market . Held at St. Georges Hall in Liverpool City Centre.

St Georges hall is a grand venue and the 200+ artists and makers filled the venue from the main hall to the concert room ,which is where C&V Boutique had our stand.

The Concert room was filled with lots of Vintage delights from established vintage brands including Mary Jones Vintage & Glamour and PillBox Vintage . There where vintage inspired stalls and my particular favourite ,vintage china up-cycled into pin cushions ,bird feeders and traditional 3 tier cake stands.

The weekend was really busy and I’m looking forward to next years market already.
