A bright and cheery vintage shop, Preservation Society is teeming with cool threads and glam dresses from the 1920s through to the 1950s (with a few pieces from the next three decades thrown in). Women’s clothing is draped throughout the bottom floor, whilst the men’s clothing is one level up on the mezzanine.
This shop offers a fine selection of stylish vintage clothes and while they aren’t super cheap, there are occasional bargains if you look hard enough. Preservation Society also offers a good choice of beautiful vintage shoes and accessories for all occasions.
A charming store with delightful staff and a constantly changing range of second hand and vintage goodies.
