An antidote to online retail and fast fashion, the enduring beauty of a vintage item - purchased with all its imperfections and age-worn beauty - is the inspiration behind this new book from Michelle Mason, stylist and founder of Mason & Painter in London’s Columbia Road.

Reclaimed and repurposed objects have the ability to inspire a whole room, an outfit or just evoke a special feeling: fragments of a previous life. Michelle adds her own inspirational style steal tips and ideas for quick updates for the smallest spaces in your home without spending a huge amount of time or money, and shows how you can recreate your own ‘vintage look’ capturing the spirit of each place.

Over 50 vintage shops, markets and stalls are profiled with a description, what it is best known for, and illustrated with sumptuous special photography, which tells the story of each store, its shopkeepers and their inspiration, including behind-the-scenes tips.
