Wander idly past the uniquely named 'Thunder Egg Noodle', and you might be forgiven for thinking that it's yet another one of these places which sells a wide range of overpriced kitschy tat. And to an extent, you would be right. But be warned - it's very difficult to walk through the doors of this delightfully quirky little independent boutique and leave empty handed.
Thunder Egg Noodle specialises in the unique - both in terms of the objects it stocks and the clothing ranges you'll find instore. Take a browse through its racks and you'll find clothing for ladies and gents alike from some of the best independent clothing lines around, including the mighty 'Get Cutie'.
It's not really the place to go if you're looking for something on a budget, but if you're prepared to spend that little bit extra, you're sure to leave with a delightful -and truly one of a kind - little trinket. And whilst it can get incredibly busy at weekends, its staff are always certain to take the time to help you find something to fit your individual tastes.
Definitely the place to go if you're looking for something outside of the norm, Thunder Egg Noodle is a very cute little shop indeed.
You can’t help but be drawn into this shop. The bright colours and Japanese inspired trinkets make it hard to resist.
Thunder Egg is a great place for gifts, whether you’re looking for stocking fillers or something a bit bigger. I can’t think of another shop quite like it. Accessories from independent designers sit alongside novelty ornaments, kitsch toys and unusual objects for your home. I went in on Saturday and was dazzled by novelty jewellery, hot water bottles, cup cake badges and other odds and ends. The Moomins seem to be very popular at the moment.
Situated on Oldham Street it’s a great place for browsing, with so much to look at. Take plenty of cash as something’s bound to catch your eye.
Well worth popping in. I've bought a few cute little stocking filler type pressies from here, there's a great range so you'll likely to find something you'll like. The clothes are quite gorgeous, unusual brands like Numph and Get Cutie which ( to my knowledge, at least) you can't find elsewhere in Manchester. The clothes are lovely to look at but really quite expensive, you probably wouldn't buy clothes here on a whim. Having said that, they are nice and individual, and i get lots of compliments on a coat i once bought here and have never seen anyone else in it.
Independent boutique with a broad range of unique, kitsch, gorgeous quirky objects, including clothes and accessories for both ladies and gents.
A tad too pricey for me justify visiting on a regular basis to buy for myself (although any time I go in there's always something which tempts me into breaking this self-imposed rule), but it's my first stop if I need a present for someone hard to please.
A perfect place for a nose around, and an extensive collection of some cool independent and original brands, like their Get Cutie dresses and Tatty Devine jewellery.
You'd be hard-pushed to find some of its wares elsewhere in Manchester, which is why it does so well. Like most city centre shops, it can get hectic at weekends, but at quieter times the staff are friendly and happy to chat and advise on their newest acquisitions if you're after something specific, like a unusual gift for someone special.
Situated in the Northern Quarter the shop sells all the things you would expect from such a location. A great place for gifts if you know someone who likes the quirky and retro things in life. The shops stocks all sorts of things - clothing, handbags, quirky ornaments and keepsakes. A really nice shop to browse around with a real feast for the eyes. Not cheap, but well worth a visit, and with a good variety you are bound to find something.
Thunder Egg is a great independent shop which sells a range of quirky and wonderful objects. It is a brilliant place to buy gifts for teenagers, and it also stocks a range of clothes.
The staff in here are friendly, and the atmosphere is chilled. I like buying clothes from here in the sale as there are real bargains to be had. The clothes are well made with quality material and they sport some funky images.
Most things in here are in the mid price range, not cheap and not expensive, but there are also smaller gifts for under a fiver. Oooh, I almost forgot that they do great handbags too!
Thunder Egg is a shop where you can buy unusual and quirky items such as handmade clothes, jewellery and cards. The difference with Thunder Egg though is that all their products are high quality, well thought out and very trendy. It is quite expensive but you can buy the most beautiful jewellery there. Also they have random products like cameras and they have a 'boys’ section downstairs. Some of the stuff they have is really a pointless gizmo that has no use at all but it will probably be so unusual you will have to have it!!
The staff are friendly but the only downside is the price, if they brought down the price, especially on the clothes I think tthe shop would be more popular.
There’s a few shops in Manchester that specialise in kitch “tatt” but this one stocks some actually quite well made tatt… and some lovely novelty items too. The clothing’s quirky, fun and great for festivals or beach holidays as there’s lots of bright, bold prints. The men’s section downstairs isn’t so good unfortunately. There’s lots of cabinets full of charm necklaces, sparkly girlie bobby bins and trinkets. I tend to head here for cheaper gifts to post out to friends abroad as you wont be heartbroken if it doesnt make it. There’s a good range of Paul Frank items, particularly bags and wallets.
What a fantastic shop! This shop is purely brilliant! It is full of some of the coolest stuff I have seen since the last time I went to Camden Market in London! Handbags by Chuppa Chups lollipops, David Bowie merchandise, Bags in the shape of Old School boom boxes, the list is endless! They sell Bobby pin ranges of handbags, Hello Kitty merch, beatles merchandise and so much more! I only really discovered the full “coolness” of this shop recently when I had plenty of time to look around. Although the store is only small, it has a downstairs which houses a wicked range of clothing such as hoodies, t shirts and much more! Some things are a little bit pricey, but in my opinion well worth it! Go in and look for yourself, this place gets a definite five stars from me!! Highly recommended!!
