Rose & Co. – – Situated up in the moors of the Brontë Country, Haworth, Rose & Co. allows you to step back in time to magical apothecary of soaps and bath powders as well as Ladies vintage wear.  It feels exceptionally homely with the olde worlde aromas of the soaps and the layout of the shop is exceptional, you really feel as if you are in another world. Quite an eccentric little shop and really inviting – a must see.

We Are Cow – We Are Cow have stores all around the United Kingdom including Nottingham and Sheffield, as well as their online store.  They have a selection of one-off pieces as well as handmade items from their own rework team recreating and altering handmade items especially for you.

Rokit – Rokit came onto the vintage scene back in 1986 with just a place on Camden Market in London, specializing solely in vintage denim pieces.  Within a few weeks, they shot to fame, and moved to a new store, later opening three more on Brick Lane and Covent Garden.  They now have their own Rokit Recycled label handcrafting original vintage pieces into wearable, and fashionable designs taking inspiration from the catwalks.  The label is fully ethical, and really quite cool.
