If you’re ever on the lookout for the perfect leather boots, brown leather belt or across the shoulder bag then get to Shappere. They even sell reworked bomber jackets made from recycled leather. Vintage fabrics are reworked to make dresses and skirts.

Owner Rachel Richards grew up minutes away from Camberwell markets and would stroll over at 6am every Sunday to bag herself some pre-loved wonders. “Vintage has been a long-time love affair. I’ve always loved owning something that was a bit different and that I knew no-one else would have.”
