A virtual minute with... Alice Mary Barnes - redux

I asked Alice Mary Barnes, whose blog was featured in my last post, to give me a few of her favourite fashion spots in her homebase of Newcastle. Here's what she came up with:

Attica Vintage Shop on High Bridge is a treasure trove of vintage and period clothes and home furnishings.

Skirt Boutique also on High Bridge has a great range of unusual clothes and accessories.

There are loads of cool cafes and boutiques in Jesmond - Kitsch'n Cafe for amazing full English breakfasts and Jules B luxury clothing boutique are two of Acorn Road's finest.

Heaton has two amazing cafes - Heaton Perk (next to Heaton Park) has the cool coffee house feel of Central Perk in Friends. The recently departed Belles and Herbs cafe on Heaton Road is now called The Butterfly Cabinet and has an amazing menu of soups, sandwiches, and they do a mean english breakfast too. This usually has a queue out the door of hungover students on Saturday mornings!

There are some great vintage clothes shops in Newcastle - Best Vintage, Retro Clothing and Yellow Jelly.
