Have you visited a vintage store and been thrown off by the tons of clothes crammed all onto one rail? Did it annoy you much? Yeah…you’re not the only one!
Blitz is a converted Victorian warehouse which features five rooms of well merchandised vintage clothing and accessories surrounded by little kitsch collectables as well as an ultra trendy café. Blitz is not like any other vintage store; it’s welcoming; it’s quirky and not dark and daunting like other commercial vintage stores found across London.
Blitz is considered to hold the most extensive vintage collection in London and is listed as a Vintage department store instead of a conventional vintage shop. It is situated on the discrete Hansbury Street in Bricklane taking it away from all the other competition in the area.
The Pandora’s Box megastore specialises in EVERYTHING vintage filled with the coolest Swatch watches from the 90’s as well as customised leather bomber jackets, knitted jumpers and not forgetting their phenomenal footwear collection.
I would encourage anyone that is passionate about vintage apparel to head down to Blitz. And if you’re still new to the vintage world, I’d advise you to take a trip down to the vintage Mecca as you can pick up some remarkable one off pieces.
