10 Places to Shop Vintage Homeware in Bristol

Bristol has a thriving collection of vintage homeware shops and markets. I’ve gathered 10 of my favourites. It’s not an exhaustive list of vintage Bristol. It is a good cross-section of what the city has to offer the keen vintage, mid-century, or antique shopper.

Note: Not all the shops have websites, I’ve added links where possible. A couple have Facebook pages to follow.

My top tips for buying vintage:

  • Keep browsing, stock changes often.
  • If you are looking for something specific, have a chat with the shop owner, they may be happy to let you know when something similar comes in.
  • It is worth haggling on price. They can only say no.
  • If you see it and like it, buy it or ask for the shop owner to hold it while you think about it. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
  • Got a space to fill, then take measurements with you. Buy knowing it will fit.
