I can only help a little, I think there are a lot in the Northern Quarter but I'm not a vintage shopper myself so don't know exact stores.

Hopefully someone else can be more helpful!

There used to be this weird place called Afflecks Palace. I went there once as I liked old stuff - but actually it was just too weird. I didn't find anything nice.

Try the markets I think - but not sure where as haven't lived there in 15 years smile

If Afflecks Palace still exists then that would be a good starting point.

Yeah, Afflecks still exists. There are plenty of vintage stalls inside, plus a wide variety of other unusual/alternative things ( I quite like it, and it's a real institution ) and like LittlePanda suggests, I reckon the Northern Quarter's a likely place to find other shops.
