I went to the Brighton branch of Beyond Retro yesterday (there's one in London too), and as much as it's a very cool place to browse in, I don't like the fact that it's so expensive. I think it's almost rude to price things so high just because of the fashion for vintage at the moment, when if you buy the same things from a car boot/charity shop they are massively cheaper.
So generally I will stick to the car boots and charity shops, but having said all that, I did come away with a couple of lovely things. One was a very flattering playsuit, I'm guessing 80's but not sure. I'll put a picture up soon as I think I'll be wearing it tonight, I hate having things without giving them an outing straight away!
On my way out of the changing room I saw an amazing wooden bag. I ummed and ahhed because it was £16.99, and I don't spend £16.99 on anything! I knew that if I didn't buy it I'd think about it loads and regret it, but I also didn't want to encourage BR's terrible pricing...
Reader, I bought it. Here's a pic:
