Reborn on Cuba Street, Christchurch quake refugee Emporium does vintage with a difference. That’s because owner Georgina Lewis and her team personally hand-pick all of their stock from secret locations all over the U.S. of A, meaning there’s nary a pair of threadbare grandpa slacks to be seen, just one sweet medley of all things bright and bygone.

Their impressive array of authentic street styles, from original high fashion brands like Chanel to Nike, are unique and individual meaning you're bound to find a treasure. Amongst the quality vintage clothing you'll also find shoes, sunnies and jewellery.

Emporium has a new online store for the fashion-conscious agoraphobics, and the geographically-challenged.
