Unique Vintage are a vintage clothing, footwear and accessories wholesaler, who only open their doors to the public once every few months. The next public warehouse sale is on Saturday 29 November at 10 Hewitt Street, Cheltenham. Doors open at 10am and the sale will finish at 3pm sharp.

All stock is handpicked and of quality, as it is fit for retail sale. You can view examples of the items on sale at the Unique Vintage website, however exact items will of course vary, as they are not being made for sale, they are being sourced second-hand.
