This northern institution first opened its doors in Leeds before spreading across neighbouring cities. Impressively, the original store has now been open for ten years, although it now boasts a permanent location on Call Lane rather than its original Kirkgate Market stall. Offering pre-loved pieces for both genders, Blue Rinse does sell unaltered vintage garments but it specialises in reworked clothes crafted from recycled fabrics. The store itself is much larger than your usual vintage shop, spanning four floors that showcases everything from printed leggings and flannel shirts to pretty floral dresses and rock band t-shirts. Keep your eyes peeled for their covetable kilo sales.
