The Rusty Zip


I absolutely love The Rusty Zip. It is one of my all time favourite places to shop in the city. After opening its doors almost sixteen years ago, it quickly established itself as Belfast's original vintage store. It is a treasure trove of vintage wonders, stocking everything from accessories, clothing and shoes to bridal wear and fancy dress. There really is something for everyone, with the store showcasing an extensive range of clothing for both men and women. They update their stock weekly and always handpick pieces individually, so you know you will always find something special. 

The Rusty Zip is the perfect place for anyone with a soft spot for years gone by. The girls are so wonderful and friendly, so if you ever find yourself in this part of the world - don't be shy! Be sure to pop in and say hello!

The lovely Laura was kind enough to let us spend an entire afternoon playing dress up in the store. We had so much fun running around trying on outfits and taking photographs. I am so excited for Laura, as she is launching her very own jewellery line called The Golden Pin. It will be launching in store this month and you can see one of her necklaces pictured above. I can't wait to see the rest of her collection!

The Rusty Zip is located in the heart of Belfast's bohemian Botanic Avenue. You can contact the store via their website and you can also find them on Facebook.

That's all from me for now. I hope you're all having a wonderful pancake Tuesday!
