The name Mero Retro means 'My Retro' in Nepali, our owner Sanjukta Tamang's native language. Sanju, who is half Nepalese and half Bhutanese, has been working in London's fashion retail sector for the past 15 years. She explains, “When I moved to the UK and later finished my degree, I worked in the fashion business for ten years: running stalls and shops across London, but I found myself developing a real passion for vintage, retro and second-hand fashion, especially as I became more aware of how wasteful the fashion industry is.

"This is what led me to starting my own vintage fashion business: I want to provide people with beautiful hand-picked clothes and accessories at affordable prices. That’s the key to what Mero Retro offers: everything in our shop has been personally selected by us to be not only high quality but ahead of current trends."

To date three shops have borne the name Mero Retro. The first opened in Camden Town in 2010. As Camden became ever more touristic and mainstream, Sanju moved Mero Retro to the up and coming area of Clapton in East London, in 2013. In July 2015 we moved again to the bustling streets of Dalston, where we hope to stay for for many years.

Our shop is home to a huge range of unique hand-picked items that reflect Sanju's passion for stylish vintage: each is a second-hand, recycled gem.

Mero Retro Dalston is open Tuesday to Sunday. We open at 12pm and close at 8pm most days - 9pm on Thursdays and 6pm on Sundays. Come by and pick up a stylish bargain if you're in east London. We're very close to Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction train stations. Otherwise we list some of our best items for you right here on Etsy!
