Overview

"As an antidote to throwaway culture, non-sustainable products and fast fashion I take a look at over 50 vintage shops and antique markets across the capital." Michelle Mason, stylist and founder of Mason & Painter Vintage in London's Columbia Road takes inspiration from some of the most inspiring vintage boutiques and flea markets that London has to offer. Reclaimed and repurposed objects have the ability to inspire a whole room, an outfit or just evoke a special feeling: fragments of a previous life. Vintage Shops London features more than 50 vintage shops with a detailed description, what it is best known for, behind-the-scenes details and illustrated with sumptuous special photography, which tells the story of each store, its shopkeepers, their style and speciality. Michelle also adds an insight into her own inspirational style with ideas for quick updates for the smallest spaces in your home and shows how you can recreate your own vintage vignette.
