Looking stylish

She also up-cycles clothes giving them a unique twist. Her aim is to unlock the hidden potential of vintage clothing to enable it to be loved again.

Home and heart

Because we know our customers love to share their passion for vintage, we source stylish items from local suppliers and crafters for you to own or give – from unique gifts, jewellery to cushions, from homeware to soaps – all inspired by an era when the thought truly counted.

Living the Dream

All this would be nothing if it wasn’t underpinned by the two old-fashioned values that Wave of Nostalgia lives by – great, personal customer service and excellent value for money. We know that if your experience with us has been fabulous, you’ll come back and maybe even bring your friends. And that will mean we can share our love of vintage with even more people and really live the dream.
