There’s no chance of walking by The Yellowshop without noticing, thanks to its (yes, you’ve guessed it) bright yellow exterior. Inside you’ll find an excellent selection of retro clothes, from the 60s onwards, as well as some new ‘vintage-inspired’ pieces. You can expect a friendly welcome, as you trawl through the rails of clothes and rows of incredible shoes and boots.

Julian House Charity Shop
Situated in the heart of Bath’s Artisan Quarter, this charity shop supports the work of Julian House, a local homelessness charity. Although it’s not specifically a vintage shop, it always stocks a large vintage section of women’s and men’s clothing and accessories – and the prices are excellent. Well worth a rummage.

With rails upon rails of cool retro pieces including dresses, jackets, coats and bags, Jack and Danny’s is heaven for shoppers who love nothing more than to get stuck in and dig out a vintage gem. Despite the hefty quantity of clothes on display, the quality is very good, so it’s worth taking the time to really explore what this little shop has to offer.
