Top Banana: Vintage finds from across the pond

Top Banana

How amazing is this jumper?!

Kings Heath based vintage shop, Top Banana (click here to see map), opened its doors in 2005, stocking the coolest vintage finds from across the pond, including fabulous jumpers like the one I got, pictured above. I love adding a bit of vintage to my wardrobe, especially 80’s American logo tees, but this grunge-look jumper is just perfect to go with my black skinnys, chunky heels or DM’s this winter.

The shop stocks the retro finds and original vintage garments from the likes of Vans, Lacoste, Converse, Members Only and many more for both men and women.

Original pieces from era’s passed, are sourced from America, by the owners, giving you the chance to add a unique piece of vintage clothing to your wardrobe. I just love discovering cute 70’s dresses, fluffy 80’s jumpers, worn leather boots and colourful 60’s scarves that the vintage treasure trove offers. Intimate, cosy, packed with vintage finds, and the warmest customer service in retail, Top Banana gets my vote.

Located just up the road from my local, The Hare & Hounds, Top Banana is a must-visit for any Brummie vintage fashion lover – and with sister shop, Chatterbox, a few doors down, you can also top up your winter wardrobe with garments from Christian Dior, Burberry and Aquascutum.

Fans of vintage clothing – it’s time to head to York Road.

Top Banana is also giving away a £20 voucher – perfect timing for a Christmas gift for someone, or to spend on that retro 70’s Christmas jumper or pretty party dress!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning, is answer this question:
