The historic market town of Stroud in Gloucestershire is a mecca for fans of all things vintage.

The VINTAGE SHOPPING TRAIL is a concept conceived and sponsored by Strangeness and Charm Vintage to promote the wonderful selection of shops and markets in central Stroud who sell selected secondhand goods. 

We are lucky enough to have 3 vintage stores, 3 second hand book sellers, 5 shops dealing in antiques, second hand furniture & collectables and an independent record shop selling both new and used vinyl.  At the weekends we also have the vibrant Shambles Market, held every Friday and Saturday which includes the legendary Vintage Mary Stall on a Friday - a destination stall for local bargain hunters looking for secondhand homewares and haberdashery. 

Stroud  also has a thriving pedestrianised town center teaming with independent retailers providing a wide range of goods and services, and an award winning Farmers Market every Saturday.

 Plus over 20 cafes 


All the businesses mentioned are within 10 minutes walk of each other


You can pick up a free map and guide from all participating stores.
