Views wanted on a new vintage shop
Posted by: Rosendale lady 12 August, 2009 11:36

I am very keen to start a business preferably a vintage shop. There is a beautiful Chemist (complete with original fixtures and fittings) on Rosendale Road and I would love to have it there. Does the forum think there would be appetite for that kind of business?

I think its a great idea...I would definitely frequent the shop and we need SOMETHING interesting to potter around in on rosendale road. what sorts of items would you be trading?

Sadly the shop has gone to the owners newphew- so am on the look out for somewhere new. Open to ideas :)

I was planning in selling vintage clothes and chinese style furntiure. A kind of Indiana Jones meets 1930s style Shangai.

Hi Rosendale Lady - if you're a vintage fan you might already know the site below - it has a good piece on vintage shops just up the road in Crystal Palace - might be a good place to look for a shop as there are lots vacant round there and I guess you'd benefit from people visiting those shops and who would therefore be likley to have an interest in what you're selling?

Shame about the vintage shop that would have been good. Don't suppose you know what the new owner is going to turn the shop into? Will be nice to have it open again.

I'm not sure he didn't say but this was some time ago and I haven't sewn any movement.
I am very curious though:)
