When buying Vintage.......

Some great advice here for those 'on a mission' to buy some quality pieces!

Stylist.co.uk  How to buy Vintage

The only quote that doesn't apply to us is "Have you noticed how dark vintage shops can be?"

Gorgeous Yorkshire at our opening

We had a private launch for our both floors of 'The Ginnel' last week and the lovely ladies from the 'Gorgeous Yorkshire' blog came along, took some excellent photos and gave us a very nice write up.

We're Moving...

We're delighted to announce an opening date for our bigger, better, beautiful new Space.  We're moving all of 20ft next door but it will be a whole world away in location, quality and atmosphere!
We'll be opening the downstairs doors next Sat 14th at 10am with the new section and Major Toms Cafe bar opening a few weeks later in early Jan. 
Here's some before and after pics.  Firstly the sight that greeted us when we first got the keys

And how it looks now, a week before opening

And finally an artists impression of how it will look next Sat

Still a little bit of work to do, but we'll get there

Furs galore!

As the winter season forces it's chilliness onto us this month, we reckon stocking up on your winter coats is a necessity. What better way to do it than with a gorg fur to warm your cockles?! In stock now we have a multitude of faux furs (we don't do real fur) with a variety of lengths, colours and styles. 

So why don't you rock a fur like Mary-Kate/Ashley (10 space points if you can tell, because I sure can't) Posh Spice and Kate Moss, and keep yourself warm during the snowiest winter in AGES. 

Don't worry fellas, Kanye's comes to the rescue! The coolest kid on the block is also donning the fur, so don't feel left out!

Here's a member of our staff looking fabulous in her faux fur, purchased from Space of course!

We've got stock in from Astraka, Tissavel and other big names from £40 so come on down to Space and treat yourself.

On The Radio..

I had 5 minutes of fame yesterday as Mark Forrest chatted to me about Vintage and Retro in a themed program on Radio Leeds.
Click on the pic to go to his page.
I've no idea how long it would be available but it was 11/09/13 at about 1h 48mins.
Being a bit slow, I didn't realise it was going to be live until the producer said 'the song will finish in 20 secs then Mark will introduce you'!

Look these guys in the eye and tell them you don't want some quality LPs.
Starting Sat 27th for the rest of the month. All my rekkids are greatly reduced, we're moving soon and I've got fresh stuff backing up so they've got to go. I've cleverly called it the 2 Quid sale.
Hundreds of LPs 2 for £2, 
ANYTHING £5 or less for £2

and £2 off anything over £5.
See what I've done there?
Please share with any music loving friends.
