Vintage Fashion Shopping in London

After doing my post on London, one of my favourite bloggers, Siljes of Siljesfashion.blogspot.com asked if I could recommend some vintage shops in London.
I have added on my favourite website list, youlovefashion.com's vintage fashion in London.
I heartily recommend you go on it, as it lists addresses, telephone numbers, website access and opening hours and it is listed in geographical order around London.
I've also added Timeouts recommended charity shops in London, which also list the addresses, telephone numbers and opening times. These can also be browsed by geographical area around London, too.
I have been to Blondies and Rokit in East London and Rellik near Portobello Road, which is ideal for designer vintage goodies. If you do go clothes shopping at Portobello Road, it is recommended to go on Fridays, as there are more market sellers out-check out the stalls near Ladbroke Grove end. Brick Lane is also worth a visit on Sunday mornings for their boutiques and indoor market stalls, too.
Regarding charity shops in London, I have heard and noticed they can be dear. But you never know, there may be the item there that you've always wanted!!

Glad to assist, Siljes! This does mean that a fat wallet will be necessary though!!

haha, totally! I usually save up for both spring and fall and then splurge... although its seldom I spend much on vintage except when its designer items that I know will last a lifetime-like the Chanel.

Oh yes-Siljes, I totally agree-I also try not to spend much on vintage (Thats the fun of hunting it down as well!) and will occassionly splurge on designer when it's a must have!!
