Just a few random snaps from another idle wander around Leeds city centre on a rainy afternoon – not your run of the mill high street shops, since you’ve probably seen enough of that on your own doorsteps, and they can get a bit monotonous, seen it all before type of thing.
On this particular day, I managed to snap a few things that looked a bit less ordinary!
Vintage shop, remakes old clothes and offers kilo sales
More vintage bits
I’d heard about kilo sales and seen vintage kilo events advertised on Eventbrite, but I’d never come across a kilo shop! Interesting concept, and very much in tune with reducing waste, and embracing more sustainable fashion. Has anyone been to a kilo sale?
If you’re familiar with Leeds you’ll probably know this dome shaped historic building very well. Bang in the middle of Leeds city centre, full of one-off independent shops.
Fish Heads and Flower Heads: Victoria Quarter
Is that a trout?
Left to right: Pic 1 Kate Spade window – Flowers on rackets on heads, Pic 2 Vivienne Westwood window Pic 3 /4 Bias window, flower heads – is this flower head artistry a thing at the moment?
Such a beautiful arcade, timeless.
The Chilli Shop
I think I read about the Chilli Shop in Time Out a while ago, it’s one of Leeds’ iconic quirky shops and perfect for chilli connoisseurs.
The Indian chief certainly gets your attention…..‘Night at the Museum’ springs to mind.
Another interesting shop
I forgot to get a photo of this cave of intrigue!! I ended up buying some essential oils and the manager gave me this card on the way out suggesting I have a look at the website.
Whatever you’re up to today, have a good one – and if you spot anything a bit less ordinary, do share!! 😊💫
