What a year 2016 has been!  The world seems to be falling apart, but we've tried to keep our spirits up by sharing images of our colourful shop windows, quirky vintage pieces, and one-of-a-kind designs you won't find anywhere else. Because when life is gloomy, we like to add more sequins! Our most-liked image of 2016 on Instagram was our big dark anti-Black Friday post. Each year we find ourselves having to explain why we don't participate in the outrageous Black Friday shenanigans, but each year we notice more and more people agreeing with us and cheering us on. So we...

We are SO excited to have Beyond Retro Label on board here at Godiva! We're all massive fans of the Beyond Retro stores, making pilgrimages there whenever we go down to London. So when Fleur found their reworked label, Label, at a trade show, we knew that we just had to get their pieces in store. The first shipment arrived late on Friday afternoon and we worked super hard to get everything checked, priced, steamed and hung ready for the weekend's shoppers! It turned out to be just the most ideal timing as the cord skirts, cosy cropped jumpers and awesome...

We caught up with Cecily to learn some more about her label...     Who are you and what do you do? My name is Cecily Blondel and I am...

It's been a busy May here at Godiva! Right at the beginning of the month we participating in the Greater Grassmarket's Vintage Fair.

We've had deliveries galore with new collections from Erstwilder, Grace & Mila, Little Moose, Mollie Brown, Queenie Browne, Rowanjoy, Silk Purse Sow's Ear, The Style, and Willow. We're also bringing fresh vintage up onto the shop floor every week, and working hard to try and get a...

music, shop news -

As well as us each having a distinctly different style, each of us here at Godiva also has varying taste in music! That's why you'll hear anything from jazz to pop to house to folk when you walk through our doors - we like to think it keeps things interesting. We always get people asking what music is playing in the shop, and which playlists we use. We thought it would be a neat idea to have a fairly regular playlist update here on our blog! Each of us - me (Natasha), Fleur, Asta, and Suzy - have chosen our...
