The last thing we expected to stumble across on Gili Trawangan was a boutique vintage clothing store, but tucked away from the main drag are some of the best vintage threads we’ve seen in a while. Vintage Delivery Store is the creation of Swedish couple Natalie and Johnny and their adorable 2 ½ year old son Noah, who sold their two vintage stores back home to relocate to the island of Gili Trawangan in Lombok, Indonesia in search of an alternative lifestyle.
Every few months the pair head off on a buying trip somewhere around the world to source stock for the store and their loyal base of private customers.
The store is an equal mix of women’s and men’s fashion, with cute vintage dresses, leather boots, vintage seventies posters, one-off tees and unique pieces like batik bikini tops from Thailand.
We bought leather lighter holders, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and a Guns N’ Roses poster for the boys at Gilinta and their entire collection of batik bikini tops. If you’re lucky enough to visit Gili Trawangan, this is one store that’s worth riding your little push bike to peruse.
I discovered the Gili T store back in May 2011 and wished I could have had more time to try on dresses as I was rushing for my boat back to Gili Air. I did manage to purchase myself one gorgeous little poka dot dress hanging in the window and love it. I am so glad there is a website so I can order some more as I missed my opportunity on the island.
Such a great idea, great clothes and great shop!
I know what you mean, we kept wandering in after consuming way too many caipirinhas in the sun – there was never enough shopping time! Hope you get back there soon x
This store is fantastic!
thanks for coming…! 🙂
