We sell vintage from around 1950 onwards, as well as preloved, retro and contemporary designs.
We take care to prep and primp all our preloved items as carefully as possible, so that they reach you in the best possible clean, mended or new condition. You'll receive nicely wrapped and carefully packaged collectibles when you order online. Check our great feedback
Our delivery promise is 'despatch next working day' but we post earlier when possible.
The majority of our stock is vintage and was not made to the same safety standards as today. It is fragile - some of our collectibles are over 50 years old. Furniture especially can be sharp if it's dropped and broken. For that reason our shop is for adults over the age of 18 years only.
*** ShimmyShim - fashion and style at a fraction of the size ***
The name ShimmyShim is inspired by a 1920s era dance. How outrageous it must have been at the time. One moment women were wearing bustles, corsets and full length gowns and the next they were shaking a leg in a beaded silk dress! Go girls!
ShimmyShim is run by director Frankie Sinclair with help and inspiration from Helen Bird.
