Look good for less this Autumn
As part of our sustainability campaign in halls, we’re also providing you with some tips and advice on how to save money and how to live more of a sustainable lifestyle. This autumn, treat yourself to some stylish new clothes for less, from coats and jumpers to boots and scarves and feel ready to embrace those darker mornings and nights in style.
Craft and Flea market
Trawl the vintage rails at Coventry’s craft and flea market at Coventry Cathedral and find yourself a hidden gem. The cathedral is brimming full of market stalls with independent makers and designers offering vintage clothes and antiques, so you can have a mooch about and may find yourself a bargain or even a special gift that you can put away for a loved one for Christmas.
There are a great selection of vintage shops in the city centre where you can pick up something a bit unique. Check out Milk Vintage in the Burges and discover some hot items handpicked from Tokyo and New York. https://www.facebook.com/milkvintagecov/videos/1014475525429535/
