You’ll feel vintage vibes at Portsmouth’s core. Draping its streets, retro retailers are set up in Southsea – the southernmost tip of the town. From old fireplaces, fishing tackle and boating accessories, to statues, toys and enamel signs, every corner of Parmiters Antiques tells a story. Otherwise, opt for Dress Code where everything ‘alternative and subcultural’ is all sewn up. Try Vintage at 97 for inimitable designs. Railing against the ordinary, this independent charity shop on Elm Grove emboldens disabled and disadvantaged young people to make their mark on fashion.
