A month to go until the summer solstice and outside the rain is pouring down and the wind howls round the house.

True British weather.   The Snappy Dresser has taken in some seriously lovely clothes over the past few weeks and if you feel in need of a boost or just want to see what we have to complement your existing wardrobe do come and see us.  We are in full sale mode in order to make way for all the lovely floaty tops and dresses that will be perfect WHEN THE SUN COMES OUT.


Rather than dwelling on what a year we have had let’s look forward to the end to Lockdown and what we have to offer our friends and clients at The Snappy Dresser.

Put simply our mantra has to be No Fuss, No Frills (well maybe a few) just simply GREAT CLOTHES AT GREAT PRICES.   If you are new to us we can tell you that a warm welcome awaits and that we will – hopefully – always find you something unexpected that will boost your spirits, pep up your wardrobe and leave hardly a dent in your wallet!

And if you don’t find anything it doesn’t matter!  We’d much rather you came and looked – there’s always another day but remember with us when it’s gone it’s gone forever!



It’s Second Hand September and the Snappy Dresser is right at the forefront of this sustainable fashion movement.     What’s not to like….fabulous cashmere jerseys AT A FRACTION of their original price,  beautifully tailored but easy to wear trousers that make you look good and feel great at any time of day (or night).   It’s a great way to shop and this autumn is no exception, our rails will be updated every week and if you are even thinking of a new winter coat COME AND SEE WHAT WE’VE GOT!


We’ve never been open in August before but business is brisk and our summer sale is in full swing.

This really is the moment to bag yourself a bargain – everything is reduced and we have some really good, easy to wear, perk up your wardrobe items.   Fantastic trousers in every hue, shape and size.  Lots of white linen tops and tunics, espadrilles and flats.

Come and see what we have to offer – we are definitely worth a visit!


June and July have been super busy and we have had a lovely time taking in new stock and seeing old friends and comparing Covid notes.

August is nearly here and it’s time to have a summer sale so that we can clear the decks for autumn stock.   We have some really good clothes – trousers in every shape colour and size, tops and kaftans, summer dresses and lightweight knitwear for when it gets chilly.

The New Normal

When we closed our doors in mid-March little did any of us realise that it would be mid-June until we were able to climb the stairs and open the door again!   Our hearts go out to any of our community of Snappy Dressers who have been ill or who have lost loved ones.

Our rails are bursting with lovely summery clothes but PLEASE NOTE this summer we WILL NOT BE TAKING IN OCCASION WEAR.  When this situation changes we will let you know.

Please see our Where and When page for our new opening hours


In line with Government Policy The Snappy Dresser has closed it’s doors until further notice.


What a frightening time it is for everyone with Coronavirus sweeping the world.   We have decided to open BY APPOINTMENT only on a TUESDAY MORNING.

We have had a wonderful selection of clothes and accessories delivered to us should you want to visit!



This Saturday is that rare thing – an extra day in our calender – we are celebrating with a one morning only, all winter stock must go, sale.

Spring we hope is round the corner – ever the optimists – and our new spring stock is out on the rails with lovely lovely jackets, skirts, cashmere jerseys, and tops.    We have lots of suitable occasion wear and some great hats.

Come and see us soon!


February is a notoriously dismal month – but all the more reason for paying The Snappy Dresser a visit where you will be assured of a warm welcome and a treasure trove of treats.   We have reduced our sale rail prices again, and there are some standout bargains to be had.

Spring clothes arrive daily which is cheering us up and making us look forward to sunnier and warmer days.

Our mantra is THINK AHEAD.   Look at your wardrobes NOW – if you have lovely clothes, all clean and pressed, that you are not going to wear this year bring them to us SOON.
