Everyone needs some vintage Clobber...

While visiting Bournemouth last weekend for a friends birthday I had a couple of hours spare to go grab some last minute beauty essentials from town ( love a special trip to Space NK!).

Though came upon a great vintage treasure! I can now honestly say for shopping vintage in Bournemouth, Dorset visit Clobber. Having had a permanent fixture in the town for over 20 years, Clobber is one of the best and one of the largest vintage stores on the south coast. Literally rail upon on rail of an assortment of high quality men and women’s vintage apparel and accessories from the 1920's to the 1980's.

In addition to the store being kindly sectioned off into different sections for men, women, accessories, the rails and walls filled with prom dresses from the 50's, evening dresses from the 70's, to knitwear, hats, shoes, bags, furs, from all eras, you really are spoilt for choice. Men also wont be disappointed with beautiful suits from the 40's, also with coats and Army Uniforms, motorcycle clothing, work wear and retro 80's sports wear,

Pricing always comes up when talking about vintage. I came away with a beautiful fur stole from the 40's in perfect condition for £35 and my boyfriends mum ( who I did drag around with me) bought the beautiful vanity bag you see below for £18, so as you will see very reasonable prices compared to the likes of London.

Clobber can be found at 920 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, BH7 6DL and can be found on Facebook here
