If you love vintage, then finding your perfect affordable vintage pieces can sometimes feel like a mission especially when you live miles from the city. Just recently a unique shop opened in my local town which also happens to be right next door to my favourite tattooist so I couldn’t resist taking a look one rainy Saturday afternoon.
The vintage shop I’m raving about is called The Cove Boutique based in Barnstaple, North Devon. This shop isn’t your average overpriced too cool for school kinda place that you get in the big cities, this boutique is affordable, totally on trend and the owners are super friendly and helpful, they even have a little mascot Turk, the cutest little pooch.
As it was my birthday last week, my hubby treated me to a little shopping spree and I came away with a few vintage goodies to add to my collection. There were so many uber cool pieces to choose from and no doubt I’ll be paying The Cove another visit for some christmas pressies as I keep seeing tons of items on their Facebook page I want to get my hands on.
The Cove Boutique has lots of vintage and retro inspired pieces on offer and also features amazing art prints, customised clothing and jewellery. The Cove supports independent brands too including RSI Apparel, The Burial Ground, Vapour, Bloody Mary Metal, Parlor Tattoo Prints and You Earth Ash. If you aren’t lucky enough to live in Devon then The Cove Boutique will soon be launching a website so you can get these vintage goodies delivered to your door.
I love supporting independent boutiques and this shop is perfect for my favourite vintage and retro styles. Take a look at my birthday vintage haul and some pictures of the vintage goodies on offer. Check out their Facebook page for all their latest news and new vintage additions.
