NORWICH, England, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Some of the world's most stylish, intricate and sought after backstreet stores come in the form of independent vintage shops.
No other type of retail affiliation captures the mood and atmosphere of its owner quite like it. There is no generic high street branding, no conforming to market demands and no extortionately priced contemporary one-minute wonders.
A vintage store owner exclusively seeks out items that have stood the test of time, and more importantly, items that they themselves find ornate and fascinating. This usually results in completely original store designs and layouts, which in turn, bring consumers flooding through the doors looking for the best bargains to suit their own tastes.
Retail Digital, the pioneering media platform for all things retail, takes a look at the best of vintage clothing shops from around the world, and what it is that makes this genre of retailing so appealing still in the modern day.
The journey includes visits to stores across Britain, the US, Germany, Spain, Holland, Australia and New Zealand, comparing the styles not just of the clothes on offer, but the stores themselves too.
The very essence of a vintage store is its atmospheric feel, fitting in with a part of history still accessible to consumers today. Granted, world renowned designers can still be found in these stores, and it is not a completely undetached model from commercial retailers, but it definitely can attract a different type of customer to the likes of Topman or River Island on your main high streets.
