15 Hanbury St.

Monday-Sunday 11AM-7PM

Absolute Vintage began as a small Notting Hill shop specializing in vintage shoes and has grown into a brand with two shops around London. Our favorite is the spacious Spitalfields location that features the largest collection of the two shops, and quite possibly the largest vintage shoe collection in all of London. Garments are meticulously organized, making your day of retail therapy that much better!
