Nestled away behind Tombland Antiques shop you will stumble across one of Norwich’s best kept secrets, Lulu Vintage. Partially a best kept secret because it has only been open several weeks, but also because of its utterly refreshing approach to vintage shopping.
Whilst browsing through Lulu Vintage’s generously stocked shop of women’s and men’s clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery (possibly less of the latter for the men!) and other assorted vintage and retro items, I was impressed at the high quality of the items and upon trying on one or two (or five) items I was even more impressed at the fact they all seemed to be freshly washed and smelling lovely. No mothballs or musty smells here!
Speaking to owner Louise, she told me how, being a shopper of vintage items herself, she wanted her clothes to be like any other shop- wearable the day you buy them without the need to dry clean them or faff around trying to re-hem or stitch in a new zip, and thats exactly what she has achieved.
I would highly recommend a visit to Lulu’s as, like me, you may just find yourself returning again and again.
