Located towards the top of Brick Lane, where endearing nostalgia meets rebel cool from the urban streets of Shoreditch, Le Grenier is an inconspicuous and unassuming vintage furniture shop selling a delightful random mix of vintage curiosities and antiques with graphic resonance. Suitably neighbouring Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium of adorable felines and tasty teas, Le Grenier is an Aladdin’s cave of chintzy tea wares, old fashioned antique packaging and ‘granny’s favourite’ floral cake tins. This family run independent presents a heart warming space of spontaneous but expertly edited antique house wares and accessories sourced from flea markets and antique fairs across the country.
Le Grenier, French for ‘attic’ lives up to its name by offering a surprising collection of vintage goodies upon every visit. Discover full sets of iconic vintage brown and orange tea cups, sugar pots and tea jars interspersed with eclectic jewellery, retro furniture, exciting knick knacks, curious bric-a-brac and old record players in suitcases. Andy Warhol would have loved this shop with his legendary collection of arty cookie jars and desire for great everyday domestic design. Prices include anything from £2 for a key ring to up to £300 for a beautiful table.
WeLikeShopping Tip: Amongst the chintz, look out for unusual hidden vintage treasures such as delightfully dapper men’s neck ties in classic paisley prints.
