Valentines

21 Oxford Street Whitstable CT5 1DB

Behind the unassuming high-street frontage this Tardis of a place sells top-notch vintage gear, all with a quirky edge. Much of the selection, lovingly handpicked by owners Mick and Karen Stacey, is Mid-Century Modern, with an emphasis on British and European pieces – mostly home furnishings but with some clothes too, and a few bits of contemporary art from local creatives. There's bound to be something you want here, from a cool classic of 1970s lighting to a set of funky orange leatherette stools for the kitchen, and prices are extremely reasonable.
