9 reviews of Radio Days in English
I can’t fault this place, I’ve received gift vouchers for this shop several times and when I go in, well….kid and sweet shop comes to mind. Gorgeous vintage dresses, handbags, gloves, hats, jewellery…and yes even vintage ceramics, magazines, radio’s. You name it. It’s not really a ‘second-hand shop’ it really is more at the vintage end (so prices match the quality of the items you find here). Even if you’re not looking for something, worth visiting just as a London Saturday afternoon ‘destination’.
I visited here today, i was amazed at the amount of vintage items here from furcoats to ladies/mens hats...the chap behind the counter was very welcoming...d time music playing away, wonderful a must see..

This is a real Vintage shop with lots of delightful things from the 1920's onwards. It's a small shop crammed with clothes, magazines, bric-a-brac, jewellery and much more. You will need to spend a bit time in here to have a proper look but I found the most amazing shoes and bag. Definitely coming back here!
Lower Marsh is full of pretty cool shops but Radio Days has to be one the coolest, even though I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anyone actually buy anything in there (it’s been there for years as well).
It’s full of retro ephemera (mostly 1940s I believe), from clothes and furniture to magazines (including a great slection of Vintage playboys), vinyls and accessories.
Great for fancy dress parties (if you’ve got a decent budget) or original house warming presents,
Brilliant vintage bits and pieces, a real Aladdin’s Cave. It’s almost like an ad hoc museum as it is just packed full of stuff from the golden days…everything from cosmetics, perfumes and classic vintage packagsing to reproduction telephones, old records and posters. The selection of magazines is great for a long rummage and includes film and music magazines alongside old copies of Vogue, Good Housekeeping et al from as far back as the 20s and 30s.
Don’t miss out on the backroom either - although not the biggest selection of vintage clothes in London the quality (and sometimes the price) make it a place to stop off if you’re looking for a one-off for a special occasion.
Radio Days is one more reason to visit Lower Marsh…and the window displays are always works of art on their own.
An aladdins cave of vintage treasures; from clothing and jewellery to magazines and household goods. You can spent a truly enjoyable hour searching amongst the endless vintage goodies Radio Days has hidden in its underbelly. With an exceptional variety of hats, bags, phones and trinkets, it certainly takes a bit of searching to find a better stocked vintage shop in London.
A big mystery shop, you never know what your going to find, but worth a look. Have found lots fo cool pieces of jewellery, clothing, and little cute ornaments. Itsa very arty shop. They offer a 20% discount if you have a special store card, which is always a good point! If you buy a few things they will also give you a special deal. I found the staff really welcoming and helpful
I love this shop, it's like a treasure trove and there's always some good rummaging to be had. I find this place is better for accessories than clothes and I've got some great belts and pieces of jewellery here. They also have a really good selection of vintage bits and pieces like old telephones and they even had a tiki bar last time I was in. Agree with the above review that it can be a bit pricier than some vintage places but they will often do you a deal for paying cash and they also do a good Wedge Card discount, think it's 20% off when you pay with cash. Oh, and the owner is a real character, have a chat with him if you have the time, he's really cool.
Radio Days is a great Vintage shop thats sells 1920's -1960's clothes for men and women, hats, old magazines and memorabilia, stockings, tea cups, accessories.
The ony down side is it is quite expensive, but you get what you pay for and in this case it's genuine vintage goods!
The staff are really friendly and there is always a big box of sweets at the counter!
