Top Notch Vintage is based in the South Somerset town of Somerton near Glastonbury. After collecting vintage and antique clothing & accessories since the early 80s, I finally opened a brick shop four years ago, now and the online shop business ten years ago, wow!
My background is in design, styling and editorial, magazine design & photography. I am passionate about creating a great look with styling a unique look just for you, whether you want all true vintage or you enjoy mixing it up with modern. Putting a whole outfit together with fab vintage clothes that suit your style and fit to flatter what you got, is for me the most enjoyable thing.
We open by appointment, Saturday afternoon or random days so drop me a message before visiting, I will open up if I can with enough time in advance.
We stock genuine vintage and high end designer clothing for men, women with a small children's collection. True vintage is always so elegant, the quality of design and make is superior with beautiful fabrics that drape and hang to flatter your shape, no matter what your size these garments were made to last lifetimes and are always a source of inspiration to fashion design trends. You will be so glad you bought vintage.
Browse our collections of vintage dresses, accessories to style your outfit for men and women and complete the look with costume jewellery, and maybe something for your home too.
If you enjoy the Tweed Run, Goodwood Revival and classic traditional tailoring we always have tweed suits and jackets with many more rails in the actual shop. Things for the discerning chaps from Edwardian to the vibrant 1980s. For the women we stock everything from antique dresses, foundation garments, wedding gowns to tea dresses and sparkly gowns for evening and red carpet events, complete with jewellery, gloves, hats and bags. Every item is a one of a kind so you can be certain nobody else will be wearing the same.
If it's quirky, quality, high end designer, elegant glamour of Old Hollywood or theatrical costume or a look that defines the trends of a period in time, which is great for film and TV costume stylists then I will probably love it, if you are looking for something, let me know and I will try to hunt it down, I have supplied many costumes for stage and screen and is an area I love, putting my old art director's hat on again to create character styles.
