Tucked away off the tourist track you'll find one of the city's best kept secrets, a shop full of vintage wonderment, exquisite finds and a pretty damn good cup of tea.. all tucked under one roof at Becnicks wonder emporium.
Becnicks wonder emporium is housed in a vast open shop located on one of the city's most eclectic streets, where else could you find a vintage emporium housed on the same street as a tattooists, comic book shop, record shop, greasy spoon cafe and a fancy dress shop. The eclectic nature of Brook street makes it a perfectly fitting location for such a vibrant independent shop.

There's plenty of finds across the shop from re-furbished vintage furnishings to one of a kind handmade finds and art so you can always be sure of something different every time you visit.
The key to Becnicks is it's eclectic nature, it's home to not just vintage and antique finds but also a selection of local designers and artists whose stunning creations you can find throughout the store, from one of a kind homewares to kitsch jewellery and art adorning the walls.
Their selection of vintage wares are incredibly impressive with several of their vintage traders hand picking seasonal items to stock from gorgeous furs to dashing prom gowns amongst a vast range of homewares which are dotted around the shop from re-furbished chesterfields to art nouveau tableware.
Simply walking past their shop window draws you in with hand picked finds adorning the windows amongst their selection of vintage chairs and sofas tempting you inside and it's not just vintage finds that Becnicks does well they also have their own in house tea room serving up a selection of homemade cakes and tea if you simply fancy a stop off for a brew.
