Vulgar Sheffield – The Ultimate Vintage Pop-Up
Hurry! For the next 2 weeks Sheffield is home to an independent clothing lover’s dream at 36 Division Street, called Vulgar Sheffield.
Inspired by the likes of eBay and ASOS marketplace, owners Amber and Liam set up Vulgar to help boost Sheffield’s wealth of independent and vintage shops. Style City has blogged about lots of Sheffield’s offerings, and it’s a common fact as a style blogger independent stores make my heart beat faster.
As these snaps show, it’s a veritable treasure trove of clothes, art, jewellery, and even taxidermy! You could spend hours in here perusing the wares, but the pop-up shop is only here until the 12th September, so you’ll have to be quick not to miss it!
It’s all part of the Common People programme, designed to fill up empty retail spaces in Sheffield’s high street. It’s a disheartening statistic that 14.1% of shop spaces in the UK sit empty, but with the likes of Mary Portas flying the flag for Britain’s high streets, it is hoped the notion of shopping in person will be revived.
Personally, I don’t think there is a substitute for spending a leisurely afternoon visiting one-off vintage boutiques and independent stores. You never know what you’ll find, especially if you’re with a treasure-hunter friend.
Projects like Bird’s Yard on Chapel Walk have already proved there is a thirsty demand for independent boutiques and a heart-warming shopping experience here in Sheffield, so I have no doubt Vulgar will be incredibly popular.
You heard it here first!
