If you fancy something a little quirky for your home or just like the old and unusual there’s a new den of collectable goodies opened up in the city which will really take you back.
The Nostalgia Lounge is packed with an amazing array of cool items that would create a real talking point in your home or satisfy collectors. This place has it all including decorative salvage, vintage, retro and collectable items, toys that bring back fond childhood memories, you name it, it’s heaven for anyone with an eclectic taste for something different, stylish and downright cool.
It’s been a passion for owner Flav Cipriano who’s amassed an incredible collection.
“I’ve spent the last few years buying quality, quirky and cool items at antique fairs and events around the UK. It was a hobby at first, but before long I started to run out of room at home, so I decided to turn my passion into a business. I’ve forged friendships and associations with some of the most prominent dealers and collectors in the country and this means I’m able to source some really good stock.
“The beauty of what we sell is that it literally can be anything, as long as it’s old! But it has to have style, character and personality. More importantly, I need to love it and that’s why I purchase it in the first place. I don’t just buy from the trade, I’m always keen to see what customers have to sell too. If there’s a specific item someone is looking for then I’ll source it for them.”
There are hundreds of goodies on display at The Nostalgia Lounge and here’s what you can expect to see: art, bicycles, clothing, die-cast models, furniture, Hi-Fi’s, jewellery, lighting, memorabilia, mirrors, ornaments, paintings, posters, records, signs and advertising, telephones, toys and much more.
Any item for sale is also available to rent for use as a prop at a wedding, party or photo-shoot. There’s also a limited number of cabinets and shelves available for traders to rent and sell from.
You’ll find The Nostalgia Lounge at 54 Second Drove Industrial Estate in Fengate. Parking is plentiful and free and it’s open seven days a week. Visit: www.thenostalgialounge.co.uk
