Hi Rune, 

try Paper Dress Vintage, closest station is Hackney Central

It turns into a bar in the evening, and sometimes some really cool bands play. 

Enjoy!

Hey Rune, Camden is a pretty good area for vintage but also really quirky things. Head to the market and the nearby shops.

Portobella Road also has a ton of vintage shops, and most are reasonable priced.

Hi Rune,

I don't know what you like, so let me give you three recommendations I doubt too many others will.

First, try Portobello Market.  In it's day if fueled the fashion conscious of the Punk Rock movement.  Today it consists of several distinct market sections; Food, fashion, produce, new goods and used items.  it's easy to loose track of time and spend the better part of the day there. Fimd them at,

Secondly, there is the Spitalfields Traders Market.  London's oldest outdoor market, it's more like a number of shops that spill out onto the streets.  It seems they've got just about everything; Fashion, food, jewelry, art, sporting goods, beauty products, ect.  View what's there at,

Finally, you've got to visit The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities (11 Mare Street).  It's kind of hard to describe.  It's somewhere between a proper British shop and a Tim Burton movie.  The staff is polite, helpful and courteous.  There inventory is bat s**t crazy!  Mind you, it's all tastefully displayed and presented.  I recommend you not going there after any lengthy time in a pub, or you're libel to look at your purchase the next day thinking, WTF was I thinking."  By all means, go there!
