New vintage store: Blitz London
Does London need another vintage store? Hell yes when it’s Blitz London, a new 5-room ‘vintage department store’ in Hanbury Street, E1. The press release promises all sorts of riches, including new stock every day, an in-store cafe, upcycled furniture, blogger-friendly ‘account managers’ and a mix of reasonably priced and rare vintage finds (hello Swatch watches). Just check out the Blitz London Tumblr and this Time Out video for an idea of what’s in store…
Open daily from tomorrow, 11-7pm, 55-59 Hanbury Street E1 5JP, www.blitzlondon.co.uk

I was reading about this place in Time Out. It sounds really cool but potentially out of my price range. Haven’t seen anything about their price point yet. Definitely going to check it out though.
