Hi Emma, I remember a shop like that, ( same side as John Lewis ) just up on Division St. It always had 'wayout clothes', got a brilliant Violet coloured Maxi Dress from there, it looked like LEATHER. Wore it with my immitation Snake skin boots, I was quite an attraction with the Biker Guys in our dico pub when I wore it. Those were the days eh!

If it’s the one I’m thinking about (from around 1990) it was on Cambridge Street - and you had to go upstairs to reach it. Some other shop was on the ground floor.

Pretty sure it was Pippy's on Cambridge Street . I used to buy Joss sticks and patchouli oil there in the early 70's !!

Worked at Cole Brother back then and Pippy's was on Cambridge Street.  It may have moved to Division Street.
