Private shopping appointments

We now offer exclusive use of our shop via private shopping appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Perfect for ladies who prefer a more exclusive shopping experience, and ideal for individuals or a group of ladies (up to 6) who wish to shop together, each session lasts up to an hour and a half and will give you exclusive access to the shop for the duration of the appointment.  (Larger parties can be accommodated on request, please email us before booking to confirm availability as a longer session would be needed)

Similar to our original Dress Room appointments, you can browse at your leisure try on whatever you like without having to wait for a changing room, or sharing the shop with other customers!   Jackie & Steve will be on hand to give you as much or as little help and advice as you need or want, with no pushy sale.
Appointment times - Tuesdays and Thursdays only:





"I live in the area and am delighted to have found Polka Dots and Petticoats! I visited yesterday for the first of what will probably be many times in the future. The shop is filled with beautiful vintage-style clothing and the quality is really excellent. I bought a gorgeous dress, petticoat (and yes, they are as frothy and soft as described!) and pashmina for a wedding. Jackie was really welcoming and helpful, and I especially liked that I was left alone to browse and try things on - she didn't hover outside the changing room like some small independents do. The price of items is extremely competitive with high street brands, the quality is superior and the range is very good. I have already recommended to friends and will be back! Thank you, Jackie "


"Myself and my friend have just visited Jackie in her beautiful shop, we have be overwhelmed with the friendly, helpful service that Jackie provides, nothing was to much trouble, the atmosphere was relaxed and very enjoyable, we both came away with exactly what we were looking for, (we both could have spent a lot more) and we will be back for sure, the personal service was outstanding and the beautiful shop blow us away....thank you so much Jackie you will definitely be seeing us again"
