I, Claudius

8 Castle Arcade Cardiff CF10 1BW

As bonkers as it is brilliant, I, Claudius is a fancy dress and retro store in one, with a world of wacky fancy dress, party gear and novelty goodies upstairs, and a tiny cave-like basement where you can rummage through shelves piled high with vintage and secondhand clothing, from smoking jackets, jeans and t-shirts, to silk scarves, hats and ties. There are other period oddments too, such as 1960s-era black and white TVs and a whole host of nostalgic artefacts.
