Traid -- we get along fine! If you are living up in Bayswater/Notting Hill and need a break from the heat your wallet is taking e'ery day, check it.

Very well priced and though clothes are "pre-loved" they are typically in great shape, newer styles, etc. Brands range from Next, New Look, H&M, etc...and also good selection of vintage separated in the back.

Big selection for both men and women. Interesting range. Decent prices. I've been in here several times, but never bought anything. I would say it's worth popping your head in if you're in the area, though. more
