CATERING for vintage devotees, who love nothing more than rummaging through organised rails teaming with hand-picked, timeless items is Fly Vintage & Retro.

Nestled between the Royal Oak pub and Tinto Lounge on Gloucester Road, the gold mine of retro and vintage attire boasts affordable "grade A" clothing, among fresh and relaxed surroundings.

"The beauty of vintage clothing is that it's built to last," says the Fly Facebook page. "When classic and original items are still obtainable, invest in a piece and preserve a slice of fashion history."

Covering five decades from the 1950s to the 90s, products - sourced from the US and Europe - range from classic Adidas tracksuit tops and flannel shirts, to Levi cords and dungarees.

A variation of glitzy, glamorous evening dresses and sequinned attire are also on offer, as well as a mixture of snug winter wear, including sheepskin coats, fleece-lined denim jackets, crazy pattern shell suit bombers, Harris tweed, and mohair jumpers. Accessories comprise of scarves, hats, belts, dickie-bows and ties.

Fly Vintage & Retro has also recently launched a clothing range for little ones, with quaint dresses, cardigans, shirts and coats.

The store is "constantly evolving" and continuing to broaden its range of products.

T-shirts and merchandise, including a framed photo and cushions, embellished with the 'Dug Out' logo - a legendary nightclub in Park Row, recognised for shaping Bristol's music scene in the 60s, 70s and 80s - are available in store. 

Fly is also looking to introduce a 'buy by Skype' system, where customers can book an appointment for a one-to-one session with a sales advisor.

Without leaving their home, the customer is able to view the item and purchase from the store via Skype.

To keep up to date with new services and products at the store, like 'Fly Boutique' on Facebook.
