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.
