Over the years, people have often asked ‘where are you based?’ or ‘is there anywhere I can shop in person’?
I set up The Vintage Wardrobe online after graduating with a degree in Fashion Brand Management. After shopping second hand and vintage from a young age, it made sense to combine this with what I’d learnt on the course, so I started working on The Vintage Wardrobe.
Since setting up The Vintage Wardrobe, I’ve had some great moments, including being featured in The Telegraph’s 50 best vintage fashion boutiques! (Still something I’m over the moon with) and being a nominee in the National Vintage Awards.
Being based online has lots of good things about it, I can send vintage all over the world and chat with like minded people. However, there’s always been a part of me that wished I could give my customers another place to shop, to see everything in person and try things on.
So it feels great to be able to now answer these earlier questions with ‘Yes! You can find us in The Regent’. One of the things I love most about having a vintage business is finding pieces that people will love for many years to come, so the thought of making these pieces even more accessible is very exciting!
The Regent is a wonderful antiques centre in Blackpool, complete with three floors and a tea room, which has the loveliest cake! If you’re local to Blackpool, Lancashire or just visiting, it’s definitely worth a browse!
The Regent is one of those amazing treasure troves where you’re likely to find a gem whatever your budget or taste. It’s a place I’ve been fond of since it’s opening and I’m so happy to now be a part of!
So where is The Regent? 181-189 Church St, Blackpool FY1 3NY You can find us in the attic, stall 14. What can you find on our stall? Every single item is hand picked, so you’ll find plenty of stunning vintage clothes and accessories from 1950s-90s. There’s also a £10 rail for those of you who like a bargain! (I mean, who doesn’t).
Have you visited The Regent yet? What would you like to see on the stall? I’ll do my best to find it for you!
