Stroud Vintage - who are we?
Visiting our Stroud vintage shop is a little like stepping back in time. Nostalgic music, delicate scents of yesteryear and a glittering array of all that's fabulous in vintage. (Visit our You Tube presentation for a flavour of our shop…)
Time After Time presents its dazzling vintage in the fashionable and stylish High Street in Stroud. You'll find us at number 30.
We have two floors dedicated to vintage for both men and women, plus jewellery and accessories with a sprinkling of home-wares in the mix.
Our date range is from around 1860 to the present day, covering more than a century and a half of antique, vintage, retro and designer pieces
Each piece is hand-picked. We will not compromise on quality – so the pieces on sale are always in tip-top condition – whether Victorian, Edwardian or from now. Each and every gorgeous thing is ready to go! And we’re affordable too!
We began Stroud Vintage in 2006 with our fantastic vintage fairs in Oxford and Stroud. The fairs evolved into the shops in Stroud and Gloucester (with Gloucester closing we were able to open the second floor in Stroud.)
The shop is family owned and managed by Sandra and David Ireland who have been involved in the fashion industry since the 1960s.
Dave grew up surrounded by textiles. His mother Flossie was a spinner at Ebley Mill, Aunty Gwen a weaver at Stanley. Uncle Reg worked at Hill Paul and Aunty Doris and Uncle Bert moved from the Dursley Mills to the carpet industry of Kidderminster. Dave lived in a mill cottage under the shadow of Stanley Mill in Ryeford before taking a Fashion and Textiles degree at the Gloucestershire College of Art & Design and working as a fashion illustrator in The Netherlands.
Sandra's mother was a tailoress, and the sound of a Singer whirring feverishly away was an ever-present feature of family life. Sandra is an illustrator and photographer with many books and publications under her very stylish vintage belt. Sandra curates the jewellery collections at Time After Time.
Life today revolves around the constant search for the fabulous.
So when you visit Time After Time in Stroud – take a little of of the past home with you…
