Speedie's, Redchurch Street, London

Yahlo Bloggatrons!
Post numero uno from Landon Landon! First stop on the way to Bricklane was this retrotastic shop called Speedie's- the guy was kind enough to let me take a few photos inside which made me v.happy since it is most definitely a place I'd like to remember and for all you guys to see. It's like a step back in time; vintage maximus! Items ranging from the 1960's to the 1980's; retro patterned wall paper, a wall dedicated to "Top of the Pops" magazine covers, the golden oldie television sets(that have wooden framing), record players and an old style vaccum cleaner. There was also a rack of vintage pieces which were indeed musty and stylish. A definite must-see if you're in London for an adventure. Actually one of my fave pieces was in the window display- a mini retro tv set with 1960's Star Trek playing, check out the glorious William Shatner below..

Thank you Mr. Speedie!
