PenniesA few doors down from In with the Old, is another incredible vintage shop. Unlike its neighbour, Pennies sell designer items rather than upcycled treats. Their bespoke selection includes vintage wedding dresses made with spectacular lace and intricately embroidered. They also sell pre-1960s vintage fashion and a vast collection of original 1920s beaded dresses. The rail of flapper dresses look like an impressive assortment from behind the scenes of the 1939 thriller; The Roaring Twenties or more recently this seasons range at Topshop.

allmygoodness found spectacular real leather handbags in unique styles. Often with vintage, the products can often be a bit worn and well… look vintage. However, the range in Pennies is high quality and polished. The products are well cared for and look just as good as the day that they were bought.

flapperPennies has come to London via the roundabout route of Oxford and Lyme Regis. Its most recent incarnation was at 4 Charlton Place, just off Camden Passage in Islington, where Penny sold vintage china and jewellery and Oliver sold beautiful vintage wedding dresses and eveningwear. Their present collection is even more enticing, and they are not planning to relocate again.

Whether it is a new purse, distinctive dress or a gift with a difference, Pennies is a vintage gold mine. The staff know their collection extremely well and can answer any of your questions. Especially if it is a unique item that you are looking for. allmygoodness love vintage because it means high quality materials can be loved and used again.
