Dublin is kind of like Manchester for vintage shopping, it has those trad vintage shops where you can still get wildly patterned nylon dresses, velvet blazers and enormo-collar shirts that every britpop-era kid . Everytime I go to Dublin I make a bee-line straight to the charity shops and to Harlequin for a rummage round. It’s one of my favourite vintage shops in Dublin, they have a mix of the indie-kid vintage with some lovely old-lady gems like TRU VINTAGE shoes and handbags as well as some prom-tastic dresses from the 50s and 40s.
They’ve also got a good bargain section and a cracking rail of lurex knits which had my inner Angie Watts going a bit mental. The prices aren’t too dear and they have a really good Facebook page which updates regularly with new stock.
