If you’ve been buying vintage for as long as we have, you won’t bat an eye at the news that vintage stalwart Beyond Retro has reached the grand old age of 10-years old. That’s a whole decade of supplying London’s vintage clan with hand-me-down threads and up-cycled apparel through its own line, MADE. To celebrate this achievement in secondhand fashion, Beyond Retro is serving up free birthday treats across its three London stores throughout mid-May. Loyal fans can enjoy an evening of live music at the Brick Lane store on May 15 (5-7pm); while the Dalston store is hosting a cabaret showcase organised by The Tassel Club on May 17 (7.30-9pm). There’s also an afternoon of acoustic live music with Hoxton FM on May 19 (1-6pm) in Dalston and, over in Soho, two talks with fashion historian (and half of The Broken Hearts DJ duo) Amber Butchart have been arranged on May 18 – Amber will be talking about 1930s style at 9am and 6pm. If you can’t make it to any of the events, look out for the new anniversary totes, designed by Beyond Retro’s arty staff (£5) and head to blog.beyondretro.com for news of online giveaways and £1000 worth of prizes.
