Pockets from Rokit

A few weeks ago I jumped on the 8.04 train at Kings Cross and headed for Leeds. After a quick change of trains I arrived at Batley. Home to Oxfam’s sorting warehouse for their online and festival shops.

Since the warehouse was pretty much a giant charity shop, split into sections ready to be sent out for specific festivals, I got to rooting around pretty swiftly. I shared a few of my finds over on Instagram here.

From a beautiful Stella McCartney for H&M beaded jacket to vintage Levi’s to a whole lot of Barbour to vintage dress galore. By the time I left I felt inspired and even more confident that second-hand shopping is the one.

With an hour to kill in Leeds before my train back to London, I quickly googled ‘vintage shops in Leeds’, got my google maps up and walked out the station at a similar speed (I imagine) to the speed of the Olympic’s marathon walking race. It wasn’t long before I arrived at Rokit. A favourite vintage shop of mine. The next five minutes involved grabbing everything I liked (no time for pondering over items over here), heading for the changing room and making snap decisions. I left the happy owner of this ankle length polka dot skirt and the promise to return to Leeds to route around their amazing and affordable vintage selection very soon.
