One of my favourite bands The Jam sang of London’s shopping icons, Carnaby Street… ‘This street is a mirror for our country, reflects the rise and fall of our nation’. The lyrics notes this little street’s hip times of the swinging sixties and its later decline a decade later. But what does 21st century Carnaby street offer the fashion bag shopper today?
Mary Portas, in her TV show Queen of Charity Shops, advised us canny shoppers that you might discover a designer handbag in a London charity shop, as long as you headed for the right postcodes. With this top tip being shared 8 years ago, I wondered if these bags were being snapped up by the growing number of vintage shop owners.
