Business opportunity at Victoria’s Wardrobe

After nearly three years of successful trading at Victoria’s Wardrobe,  I have decided I would like to move on to the next chapter of my life.  This means the business is for sale and so there is a fantastic opportunity for someone to purchase this profitable business.  If you are interested in finding out more, please contact me either by e mail or telephone to arrange a time to meet, outside of business hours.


In the meantime it is still very much ‘business as usual’ and spring items are currently being accepted followed by summer items at the end of April.  Please be assured that any items you have, or do leave for sale, will be looked after in the way they always have been by me and subsequently the new owner.  Clients will be informed as soon as a buyer is found.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Christmas gifts for friends and family… or just you

Since the last post, which was a long time ago – apologies, we have been busy in the shop accepting winter stock on a daily basis.  This takes up a lot of time and means that tasks such as updating the website fall behind.   As you can appreciate, we need to prioritise replenishing the rails to keep providing new items for our customers, however the Facebook page has new posts a couple of times a week so please look at this for selected items which have just arrived.

As Christmas is fast approaching we have some items which always sell well as gifts for others such as scarves, jewellery and other accessories. 

Vintage silk Liberty scarf


There are several Liberty items at present including lavender filled pillows made by one of our clients from Liberty silk.  These are available for £10 and make a lovely gift. 


Liberty accessories and lavender pillows

If you like high end designer labels, we currently have a Burberry Prorsum ’little heart’ Crush bag for sale.  In immaculate condition with dust bag, cards and original receipt.  Purchased in November 2013 for £880. Available to purchase from us at £449

Burberry Prorsum little heart Crush bag

We are open over the festive period in general except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and 2nd January.  Please see the opening times page for times.

Happy Christmas to all of our customers and clients, old and new and we look forward to seeing you in 2015. x

Our best seller – handbags

The great thing about a bag (apart from the obvious purpose as something to carry stuff around in) is that one size really does fit all.  There aren’t the frustrations that there can be with clothes, of seeing a garment you love, only to find that it doesn’t fit in the right places.  Perhaps that’s the reason why bags are such a popular purchase item for our customers.

Here’s a beauty from Osprey, London

Ladybug large tan leather croc print grab bag from their current range.

h28 x w45 x d18 cms, floral print lining with internal zip pocket and phone pockets, dust bag. (Retails in John Lewis at £365)

One of this season’s loveliest colours

This gorgeous jacket we have for sale from the Per Una Speziale range is in a colour which is really on-trend.  We’re not sure of the name of the colour, lime green isn’t right and ‘yellowy green’ doesn’t do it justice although is more of an accurate description.

Whatever you call it, it reflects our philosophy of doing our best to take items which reflect current trends in fashion – the type of items that might be found on the High street, but at a fraction of the cost.

The shop is now full of Spring items which can be worn now and Summer items are also starting to arrive, in anticipation of warmer days and holidays ahead.

So before you do a search in the regular shops, call in – we might have just what you are looking for.

Easter opening hours: Good Friday 12-4, Saturday 10-5, Easter Sunday – closed, Bank Holiday Monday 12-4
