Dog & Bone is York's one stop Vintage, Retro, Fashion and lifestyle paradise, located by The Coppergate Centre,at 28 Castlegate.
Nic fell in love with wearing vintage during his university days, and buying and selling not only became a passion, but a necessity to help fund that lifestyle itself.
It was in 2011 when he set a market stall in Brighton, on a windy racecourse in order to sell all the clothing he'd purchased over the years, in the midst of the recession. From then, grew what was to be called Dog & Bone Vintage - a name derived from Nic's surname, Barker, trading online and referencing the rag & bone trade.
From online, to market stalls, the first clothing shop on Gillygate was born in 2013, and expanded to the store it is today in 2015 with a broader focus on vintage and retro influenced home goods, fashion and lifestyle products and of a huge expansion of the clothing section, spread across two floors.
