I phoned up to check they were open as it was August when most places were closed. Spoke to someone at the 22 building. When we got there it was closed but said ask at number 24, which we did. The store was stuffed with boring and frumpy designer labels and a real leopard coat with a big sign saying 'do not touch'. The man stood in the door way to the back, looked miserable and unfriendly, was very rude when we said we had phoned up, and seemed to have no clue despite the sign at the previous store. Now considering that a) I am a serious vintage collector-my collection includes several couture pieces and b) I was wearing one of those pieces to the shop I expected someone to maybe try and be nice if they wanted to sell something (I was intending to buy!). I would never stop anyone touching items, in fact I would encourage it because its a very important factor to buying a vintage piece, and I would smile too, I am far more passionate than this soulless crew. Well he lost out as I got myself a beautiful umbrella from Alexandra Sojfer instead, and my dresses were much more stylish anyway, I certainly would not trade.
