The best vintage store in London
North Cross Vintage (on the corner of Fellbrigg Road, just off North Cross Road, London SE22) is one of those perfect treasure troves, stuffed to the rafters with a fantastic collection of books, signs, packaging, tins, woodblock lettering, furniture and other assorted ephemera.
It's run by the lovely John & Belinda, who hand pick all the stuff. The shop was originally tucked away in a basement on the nearby Lordship Lane before they were flooded out - but the enforced move ended up being a good thing, as their new location has far more space.
While they replenish their stock after the Christmas rush the shop is only open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (from 11 to 6), but from February they'll generally be open Thursday through Monday each week.
