Glass Onion: Sheffield’s hottest vintage storePosted by: Molly Rowe-Towle
Since launching their website in 2020 and opening their store in Sheffield, shoppers across the UK love Glass Onion and we can see why
What is currently the UK’s leading vintage clothing company was founded in 2004 by John Hickling when he started selling clothing from his grandmother’s coal shed in Barnsley. Since then Glass Onion has grown massively offering quality guaranteed vintage and reworked clothing from a wide range of brands such as Nike, Carhartt and the North Face. The company now employs over 65 people and processes up to 20,000 kgs of second-hand clothing every week.
The vintage clothing company offers a multitude of events that you can get involved in. At their Division street store, they have frequent sale days where you can find some amazing deals. They are also holding a Freshers Lock in event later this month where students can browse the stylish vintage offerings to the sound of a live DJ. The students will also be given free drinks and extra special discounts and bonuses. What’s more on the 16th of September Glass onion are opening their Barnsley warehouse to customers who can purchase any single item for just £5.
If you are not based in South Yorkshire Glass Onion also has something for you! The Glass Onion website is full of great deals, such as the Thursday Club £5 raffle where each week you can be in for the chance to win an item from the Thursday club collection worth over £100. Moreover, they hold pop up events across the UK and in the next few weeks are visiting Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham.
By shopping at Glass Onion, you are not only able to buy great, unique items but are helping improve the environmental impact of fashion by supporting the circular fashion economy. The Circular fashion economy stops the cycle of fast fashion and encourages us to re-wear, repurpose or rework clothing. And by shopping Glass Onion you are doing just that as they process thousands of kilograms of clothing each week, which is either sent back to the Highstreet where it can be sold again or reworked in the factory to be sold to people like us! So, visit glass onion either online or in store and see for yourself why we love it.
