Indie Pick: Down at the Arcade
It has been two years since husband and wife team Al and Jo Marriott moved the Indie Arcade from the Nichols Building into new premises on Scotland Street.
A menagerie of quirky vintage products, covering everything from retro clothing to an impressive vinyl collection, the duo have managed to replicate its alluring treasure trove-style appeal in a shop jam-packed with curiosities.
“Organised chaos” as Jo calls it, who spent over 20 years with the Derbyshire Police before turning a lifelong passion for vintage into a full-time occupation. You’ll also be able to find her Tank Top Vintage clothing line in-store – a handpicked selection of unique 60s/70s pieces for men and women.
It might be tucked away slightly from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but it’s just a ten-minute walk from the High Street or Kelham Island and worth steering off the beaten track for an entertaining browse.
