30 years ago, Virgil gave birth to a one-stop shop for all things nostalgic, and it’s showing no sign of stopping. The only things showing their age are the delightfully dated furniture and collectables up for sale, from phones to rocking chairs. Virgils Antiques only buy the best from private sellers and estate sales, so you won’t see any unloved dump-offs at this place. If you’re looking to put a bit of retro back into your abode then come to Virgils.

Nothing beats a vintage flair and Retro 157 will have you styled and poised in the best fashion from time long past. They have a huge range of retro clothing as well as some cute collectables, furniture and upholstery for you to dig through and try on. Fall in love with the style by dressing yourself up like a vintage darling and save a fortune while doing it.

If you’re just dying to find that old lady cottage look (hey, some people really dig that) then Speckled Hen is going to become your new best friend. This old girl has been going strong since 1967 and stocks all the furniture, crockery, homewares and accessories your nostalgia can dream of. It’s like walking into a Beatrix Potter novel! Dress your place up with a little help from Speckled Hen.
