Syd's Vintage is the latest pop-up shop to come from the SEE3 Portas Pilot Project in Forest Hill, Kirkham and Sydenham. Support it!
"Syd’s Vintage are Kirkdale’s newest pop-up shop and sell a select range of must-have vintage and retro clothing, accessories, homeware and furniture. These guys have sold vintage goods in the area before and it went down really well, so the opportunity to operate again was too good to miss.
Louise Brooks, from The Shop Revolution who are delivering the SEE3 Portas Pilot project (which funds these pop-ups), is thrilled to have Syd’s Vintage on board,
“Kirkdale is a really attractive little stretch of shops with some interesting existing offerings which Syd’s Vintage compliments beautifully. They have a great range of high-end vintage clothing and offerings which I think will really appeal to the local community”.
The set-up is perfect as several established retro furniture businesses are in close proximity, so people can really make an afternoon of browsing antique wares. Everything from bodices and boas to sideboards and chairs are on show in the newly decked-out shop. Owners Clair Draper and Norman Tinker love being part of the SEE3 project, and Clair explains how her long-held interest is coming to fruition,
“I’m really excited to be launching in an area that’s rich in vintage heritage. I’ve been interested in vintage ever since I can remember and I’m looking forward to sharing my passion with the people of Kirkdale and beyond. I’m also really proud to be part of the SEE3 project.”
It’s easy to find too, you can walk from Sydenham station (with East London Line services) in under 10-minutes AND it’s open over the weekends! We hope to see you there."
