Crazy Man Crazy will be joining our merry gang on D Rd very soon :+1::+1:

Here’s a review by Time Out

Dear TimeOut

Why would someone have to go to Crystal Palace station when Forest Hill station is much closer?


#3

Jason, the shop was previously in Crystal Palace but is coming to D Rd now :+1:


#4

Oh. That wasn’t particularly clear in the announcement.

But nonetheless this is a great news for Forest Hill. I’ve always thought this was becoming an outstanding centre for retro/vintage goods. Maybe this is a sign that SE23 is taking over from Crystal Palace.

Its a brilliant shop-me and my old man used to go to CP just to shop there.
I brought myself the only jeans Ive ever loved and enjoyed wearing there (He does a bit of girls stuff these are girls 50’s style jeans)- so good I went back and got a spare.
really well priced and great stock.
I’m so chuffed he’s moving here I know he was looking at Kirkdale originally.
Lovely owner great stock a welcome addition.

And thanks to @Anotherjohn for finding him a retail space :+1:


#7

Do we know when it’s going to be open id love to pop by and have a visit as new to the area and have a keen interest in fashion and art


#8

@Anotherjohn will be able to answer that question better than me, though work started on Monday so not long at all.

Welcome to the area & the forum & feel free to pop by to have a chat about www.fhfw.co.uk & FH Arts anytime.

More than happy to get you involved in either if you want too :+1:


#9

Thanks Pauline,
I will have to certainly pop by say hi and have a chat on my next day off :grinning:


#10

I wish there was a non-cool men’s clothes shop in FH or Sydenham, where I could buy (for example) handkerchiefs.


#11

Pocket squares and more hopefully soon for you by the sounds of it


#12

I don’t want a ‘pocket square’, I want something to blow my nose on.


#13

If I may be excused (?) - a snot rag.


#14

Hi mwfrost.

Although the details of this new business is probably no secret, I think it would be more appropriate for the people involved to make it public rather than me.

It won’t be too long now though!


#15

That is indeed an expression I recall from my primary school playground.


#16

:joy: what a beautiful description


#17

I can’t wait !!! :heart:


#18

A little dickybird told me this is opening today!


#19

Is this where Wild Horses is?


#20

Ah… I see from Twitter that Wild Horses has been split and the other half will be this new vintage men’s shop. Gotcha!
