Here is a list of my favourite places to shop vintage in Cardiff.
In no particular order:
Looby Loo's Boutique
A pretty little store in the High Street Arcade. It has a good collection of both men and womens vintage as well as a range of clothes made from vinatge materials. What I most like about the store is its easy shopping, while I do like a good rummage around to find hidden treasures, there is no tat. All the clothes at Loobys are in great condition and displayed lovingly in its delightful surroundings.
Another plus are the changing rooms, spacious!
Heres the website, where there is even a shop tour!
Blind Lemon vintage fair
This lovely event travels the UK stopping in Bristol, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Swansea.
I went the other weekend and got myself a real fur coat and a lovely Tulchan cardigan. Good prices and lots of variety on the stalls. Its a great place to pick up costume jewellery.

Set in the beautiful Morgans Arcade in Cardiff city centre is
A Vintage Affair
This shop is wall to wall heaven.
In every corner there are shelves and antique dessers full of crockery, handmade gifts, bags,gloves and hats from every era. Bunting and fairy lights hang from the ceiling and vintage inspired greeting cards sit behind mountains of beautiful jewellery.
This boutique fits perfectly next to the second hand bookstore in one of the most beautiful of Cardiff's Arcades. Definitley worth a visit.
The Victorian Pumping station Antiques and Interiors
This indoor market offers a range of antiques and collectables including one lovely vintage clothing stall.
Lots of old magazines, ornaments and tea sets as well as reclamation yard items such as garden features, door handles, tiles and fireplaces. Lots to look at here and great entertainment for an afternoon. This is where I go for a good rummage!
