The first store in Hackney's vintage boutique empire Strut sits in the heart of Stoke Newington.
Established by Hoana Poland, a veteran vintage buyer, this first outpost sells a good variety of well-priced, quality vintage and high end designer garb.
The shop window features witty displays of the best frocks and suits, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
Prices for top-of-the-range stock are understandably higher than the average second-hand store, but there are still bargains to be found.
The store hosts buying days on Mondays.
