Maggie's Farm

Maggie's Farm is a super lovely vintage clothing boutique that can be found on Union Street here in the city centre of sunny Dundee! It is filled with an array of gorgeous, grungy reworked clothing, hippy jewellery and a few quirky pieces of upcycled furniture which, along with the uber cool soundtrack, transport you into a retro inspired dream-state, this is my favourite kind of retail therapy...

As u get lost in this grotto of vintage loveliness, its impossible to not find something you will love and want to spend your hard earned pennies on. Highlights of mine include cut off denim shorts with applique pocket details, arran knit sweaters in pretty pastel hues, floral tea dresses and some very glam-rock, glittery get-ups (for extra special occasions).

Maggie's Farm is a great place for folks who love the feel of a vintage market as everything is mismatched and misplaced in a jumble of textures, patterns and colours to inspire you to create your own look. It provides a great change to the conventional high street shops, as most of the items here are unique one off pieces.

The shop has been open for a few years now and is growing in success. It is exciting to learn that there has recently become a special place in the heart of a certain Topshop store on Edinburgh Princess Street where Maggie's Farm is show-casing it's lovely wares for the fashionable gals and guys of the big city...and although I haven't had the pleasure of visiting it yet, I reckon we are lucky ones to have the original boutique right here on our doorstep!
