Upon arrival, we headed away from the bull ring and city centre in search of The Custard Factory - once the old Bird's factory but now home to a collection of delightful little independent businesses including Le Keux Vintage Salon (we only peeked through the window but it looked fabulous), Urban Village (packed full of vintage clothing and accessories at seriously good prices - nothing like the ridiculously marked up stuff you get in London), Yumm (a v.cutesy little deli where they called out our names when our drinks were ready) and, most importantly, The Couture Company, specialisers in unique bridal dresses. My pinterest board is full of their designs so it was great to finally try some on!
After the appointment we headed back towards the centre and on the way stopped by Cow Vintage. This shop was a gold mine *ahem* we were in there for nearly an hour and it's really not that big. The clothes were ace and also incredibly well priced. I picked up a dress for £15 and a checked shirt for £6.50! Bragainous non? Oh, and another thing, their changing rooms were super sweet too. When we were finally able to drag ourselves away (with several purchases between us) we had just enough time to grab something to eat in the bull ring and make our way back to the station.
