The Beatnik Emporium has been based in Southampton for a long time! We began our vintage journey back in the good old days of 1992 when we had two shops in Ocean village.
our original shop was called The Ethnic Egg, and the other was Beatnik which we opened a few years after. We traded there in a mall on the waterfront until 2000 when it was demolished to make way for flats. This meant that we had to up and off to Old Northam Road, which at that time was home to many antique/junk/quirky shops, and was supposed to be an area that was being regenerated.
We stayed there for around four years whilst the football stadium was being completed, then when our rent suddenly doubled we fleed to our present glorious location, Above Bar Street, opposite one of Southampton's many beautiful parks.
Come and visit us!
Our unique and friendly shop is easy to find in
Southampton. Perhaps try some crazy combinations of various styles or
clothing, hats, jewellery, facemasks... we will always do our best to
help. Bring your camera and friends!
