A selection of photos from The Vintage Showroom in London. The company operates by appointment only, as it is mainly used by designers for “inspiration” and whatnot. If you live in NYC (and are a designer) or a vintage obsessive, The Vintage Showroom operates much like Melet Mercantile or Strong Arm Clothing Supply. Also, if you live in Boston you should know Bobby from Boston, which is more of a public store front than these others. Being that the The Vintage Showroom mainly serves industry people, the prices are not cheap. The prices are also what they are because the proprietors spend a lot of time and money sourcing the stuff. There is also a store front that is open to the public near Covent Garden if you want to check that out.
It was nice to be in a vintage store that wasn’t entirely American stuff (which is much of what I see). It was also nice to see an Ursula Suit in real life. Thanks again to Doug for the hospitality. Next time you head to London make a detour to The Vintage Showroom, you won’t be disappointed.
