Cowley Road in East Oxford is a vibrant, busy place. There are a variety of shops ranging from world food to fashion. Dotted along the road there are also many bars and restaurants, which I have been working my way through 🙂
I decided to have a charity/vintage shop exploration and firstly visited the best charity shop, Oxfam (cough, cough…), Sue Ryder, Barnardos and Helen Douglas House. I also took a nose around Indigo ethical store, the Ballroom Emporium and Reign Vintage.
The Ballroom Emporium is at at the top of Cowley Road on the Plain and although a bit pricey its a very interesting place to look around.
I found these really cool sunglasses:
And I loved this magnifier!
Charlotte my house mate bought this very pretty vintage dress:
I then took a look around Indigo ethical store, the lady who runs the shop was very nice and offered some great contacts for my job.
After a busy day shopping along the road we just had to stop at the best ice cream parlour, G&D’s for a scoop or three!
There are also a lot of independent food shops on Cowley Road and outside the butchers I love this statue!
On the way home I came across my dream car – the Nissan Figaro *want*
I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos from my little day out
