Deja vu has a wall painted a fashionable deep dark blue and an African art display but it's a long way from a 'curated' vintage store.
For a start, it's cheap. I've bought pretty teacups here for ridiculously little money and their second-hand books go from the very highbrow (annotated 1950s translations of the Oresteia) to the very not (Agatha Christie hardbacks) without ever going much over a quid.
For another thing, the stock is interesting and worth delving through.
One of the teacups came with a free spider, there's fine 70s/80s tourist tat to delve through, and the staircase to the basement is risky for anyone above 4 foot.
In other words, it's the kind of place that makes me happy when it's raining and where the owners listen to the cricket on sunny days.
