Selling a unique curation of vintage fashion and accessories, alongside a considered range of vintage inspired, sustainably produced brands, Love of Lemons store founder, Bex Osman, lovingly hand-picks everything in store. Her motto is ‘Re-use, Re-love, Re-style’, and her aim is to bring the old back to life alongside the new, while reducing the impact that the fashion industry has on our planet. Since launching online, and now having her own storefront on the bustling highstreet of Nansledan, Bex is delighted to be part of such a strong and local community vibe. “I want to thank everyone who has backed my dream and supported me on my vintage journey. The response has been overwhelming, and now that I’ve started rolling out my full vintage mission, I’m excited to invite everybody to shop for one-of-a-kind finds!”

Marcel Rodrigues Hats

Regularly described by clients as works of art, Marcel Rodrigues’ hats are all handmade by Marcel himself using traditional techniques and each one is totally unique and plastic free. Made in the workshop, which is part of the store, the unisex collection of bespoke hats sits alongside a sustainable and ethically-sourced range of fashion clothing, including leather and brass accessories, all made using 100% renewable energy. Each item in the clothing range is also handmade in the shop using either British or repurposed cloth. 

The driving force of the business is one of trying to change consumer mindset from buying low-cost, mass-produced items that ultimately end up in landfill, in favour of higher quality items that, although may cost more, can be treasured and last a lifetime.
