East Lane Business Park had never seen such glamour. This time last year, dawn broke on a winding queue of leopard print and lipstick, girls and boys who had been waiting since six for the doors of Angels Warehouse to open, where the world's longest established costumiers was preparing to sell off boxes and boxes of old stock. When we finally got inside, I clambered over fashion students to buy my plastic bag (a medium one for £20 or huge one for £50) and fill it with 1940s coats, 1950s dresses and a stack of 1960s trilbies. It's amazing what you can squeeze into a carrier bag if you really try, trust me. Their second sale is on Saturday 6 February - get there early, dress warm, and don't come away with fewer than three full looks.
