The new shop is the first of its kind for Myton with a strong focus on vintage and unique items in an area of Coventry which has become renowned for its edgy vibe and businesses which stand out from the crowd.

The first items to be bought from the shop included a vintage Yves Saint Laurent three piece tweed suit, a set of Italian cocktail glasses, a seven inch vinyl single of Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ and some Levi jeans.
