This is one of many vintage and retro shops that you will find down this street. I would class this as one of the better ones too. It's not too pricey and the selection of treasures inside is delectable.
In winter you can pick up some great winter jackets and there is a huge mirror at the back that you can prance around in front of as you try on old peoples clothes.
I also think that the accessories are good here with a great selection of well kept items.
It does get a little cramped on the weekend so I would go early. You'll also get the good stuff before the others do too! I think this shop is very cute and the staff friendly.
I've always found this vintage store a bit hit and miss. The selection of shoes and bags is usually quite good but a lot of the clothes are not what I would consider to be vintage. There seems to be a lot of early 90s wear, discarded sleeveless polo necks from Tammy Girl and the like. They do however have a good selection of leather jackets for men at quite reasonable prices.
The dresses are mostly garish full-length 70s numbers, but any vintage shopper worth their salt should be equipped with a sewing machine or at least a mate with one so that the strange hemlines of yesteryear can be easily rectified.
I wouldn't say it was worth journeying to Church Street from afar to sample the goods in this store but it is always worth a look in if you happen to be in the area.
You have to do some real hunting at Ribbons and Taylor to find a bargain! There is a variety of vintage clothing for both men and women available. The store however looks a bit like someone's warehouse or forgotten garage space full of clothes and shoes. Vintage has real charm, but they seem to have forgotten that here by cramming everything into one space.
The shoes are what I always look at here, as well as some of the bags. There are some really funny clothes here, and its such a laugh to go with a friend and try on some ridiculous clothes. But you can always have a look around, develop your archeological skills and have fun!
Always have a good selection in here and first stop if you want a great leather jacket.
I always find it fascinating watching the window display of this vintage clothes shop change several times a day as they vary from really quite attractive to appallingly frumpy and ugly. One minute a brilliant seventies disco dress, quickly snapped up by a canny Saturday night shopper, the next a hideous pleated skirt and sweatshirt combo that seems to get bought just as quickly. There are some decent clothes here but nothing terribly special and most are just very over-priced.
More modern shirts than there used to be, but I got a great dress shirt from here with what can only be described as a crocheted front. Also a great Stussy shirt with embroidered dragons all over it. Few years back got a good overcoat as well, only £20, but I think it may have been a little mothy. Lots of great jackets, there are slightly more women's than men's clothes. Good selection of old jeans as well.
