Trouser suits (all fully lined), including skirts, range from six pounds ten shillings up to ten guineas. Floral coats, of varying lenghts, cost about seven guineas. Light fabric dresses cost as little as two pounds ten shillings up to three pounds ten shillings.

How amazing would be if there was least one shop like that still around? Just looking is brilliant and I'd love to own that shirt/jacket from To Jump Like Alice xxx

I love the name 'To jump like Alice'. I assume its a reference to Alice jumping down the rabbit hole into Wonderland? And the window for The Shop is lovely. It would have been to good to see in colour

I really loved this post. It excites me so much to see more pictures of more boutiques that I haven't yet seen before. There is something about the fashion boutiques of the 1960's that just can't be found in the fashion stores that are around these days.
