My Love Story With Fashion
Bobby & Dandy is a treasure trove of true vintage and heritage clothing, with a particular emphasis on mid- century garments and accessories.
Since opening in March 2012, Bobby & Dandy has become 'the' destination in the South East for lovers of vintage clothing. It was a finalist for the Natwest Venus Awards 'Best Small Business' 2013 and is often listed as one of the best vintage shops in Brighton & Hove. We have also been recently featured in Condé Nast magazine 'Insider Guide' and Time Out as one of the best places to shop in Brighton and Hove, and featured in Best of England Travel Guide, The Telegraph, on the BBC and Channel 4's French Collection.
Each item is hand-picked, not sourced from warehouses or bought in bulk like many other vintage stores. We aim to stock unique, high quality pieces, paying particular attention to style, cut, print and condition.
We love interesting menswear and womenswear pieces and stock an eclectic collection, as well as classics which can be worn by the vintage enthusiast or incorporated into the style of a modern dresser.
Donna is always at hand to help customers find what they are looking for and is happy to help with those who require styling advice regarding certain eras.
