Howdy!
I'm moving to Sheffield, ooooh on Sunday *giggle*, n rather than me having to wonder around like the lost soul I am, Can any of you luverlee peoples tell me if there is anywhere in that God forsaken place that isn't a "townie" shop and where I'd actually be able to get some decent clothes/music/stuffs, I know there's 1 shop in meadowhall which is cool but I can't seem to find any others!! I'm assuming there's some because when I went up to viw my flat with my b/f we saw some sex-ay looking alternatives with some of the coolest gear to ever walk this earth, so I'd guess there has to be some shoopes, that or y'all make your own stuff (I've been known too)
Anyhoo hope I haven't offended anybody!

I lived in Sheffield for a fair old while, and have yet to find a cool clothes shop..The Forum (everyone yaps about it) has a couple of small indie shops but it has no range...meadowhall is not that good either, just typical indoor shopping centre. if you want good shops your going to have to go to leeds, nottingham or manchester. I really would not bother looking around sheffield it will only depress u.

For music try Record Collector in Broomhill or Forever Changes on Eclesall Rd/Hunters Bar.

depends what you mean by 'alternative' - if it's skate/punk/hardcore sort of thing, then go to Fuse in The Forum on Devonshire Street - they stock tons of clothing/accesories from UK and USA, and the staff seem to know their stuff and are dead nice.

Goth stuff - got to be Rocky Horrors. They've got it nailed from PVC Nurses uniforms, big crazy boots, mad shirts and all that kinda thing.

Retro - I guess Freshmans, again, in The Forum. Flares, retro Americana tops, old band t-shirts, stuff like that. It's pretty cool and cheap too.

hope this helps a bit.

You should wash your beard, then shave it off, nail it to a Frisbee and fling it over a rainbow.

I've never understood people who do that. Is it because you want to support a charity? If so, why not make a donation? Or is it because clothes in charity shops are cheap?

I'd agree with that, shame I don't practice what I preach as I am sitting here in adidas trainers.

I would heartily indorse this suggestion. Kick Ass is a fantastic shop. they have brilliant clothing, fantastic shirts/jeans/jackets/jewelry/belts etc... And right across the road is an army surplus store [jayjays?]where you can get boots and things with camoflage etc..

Kick Ass Angel's Website

Roadtrip Movies Please view my local roadtrip movies. All shot from a moving vehicle around sheffield streets, airports, snake pass etc.....

How can you be concerned about how ethical GAP is and still eat Green & Blacks chocolate which is not Fairtrade? A double standard surely?
