Worthing Vintage Shops Guide

Far from its reputation as a sleepy retirement town, Worthing’s vibrant arts and independent shopping scene have breathed new life into its rich cultural and architectural heritage over the past few years. Here, owner of Pin-Up boutique Retro Daisy, Shar Daws explains why she’s in good company with a run down of five must-visit Worthing vintage shops.

Retro Daisy

Worthing’s One Stop Bombshell Shop, stocking reproduction vintage clothing from across the globe, including Vivien of Holloway and House of Foxy, all manufactured in the UK, Pin Up Girl Clothing from the USA and Miss Candyfloss from Sweden. In sizes 6/8 to 26, prices start from just £15.99 for a dress and if you can’t get to the shop, you can take advantage of free P&P on all online UK orders.

Encore Antiques & Vintage

Encore Antiques & Vintage is a heaven for fans of Art Deco and Art Nouveau details so evident in many beautiful buildings throughout the town. Owned by a second-generation antiques dealer, it boasts a wide range of items spanning the 1800s right up to the 1960s, including beautiful vanity sets and dressing tables.

Mrs Bramble & Friends

Tucked behind Worthing’s main pedestrian shopping area, Montague Street, Mrs Bramble offers presents and homewares you won’t find on the High Street. Expect an eclectic collection of handmade gifts, vintage accessories, jewellery and hand-painted furniture.
