Ark of Cambridge

23 Feb

Friends are constantly coming back to me with shops, items and websites saying ‘saw this and thought of you’.

A good friend of mine recently sent me a few images of ‘Ark’ vintage and antique store in Cambridge. There are two branches of the shop, St Mary’s passage, and Norfolk street.

Florence from the St. Mary’s store says “we often get a lot of parents of students saying they make a point of stopping in when they visit their children.”

Their vintage and antiques are sourced locally and from all over the country – “sometimes customers come to us with items or we go off in search of them.”

There’s a mixture of modern and heritage vintage and antiques throughout both stores. The Norfolk street shop tends to have more furniture items (which are popular with the locals.)

This Saturday (26th February) see’s the launch of the St Mary’s stores’ vintage fashions collection ranging from ‘handmade pieces dating back to the 30’s, to 80’s prom dresses.’

The Vintage clothing collection will be available exclusively on Saturdays.
