Falkland Was The First Film Location To Be Used For The Hit Starz TV Series "Outlander". Used To Portray The City Of Inverness In The First Episode "Sassenach".
The quaint streets and buildings, with the backdrop of the East Lomond hill makes it the perfect Highland setting for Inverness in the 1940s.

Most of the scenes were filmed in the town square - just a stones throw from Vintage Quine! Claire is even seen wandering through the village past our shop to gaze in the window of the General Store where she sets her sights on that blue vase. If you're looking for that 1940s style in your wardrobe, our range of 1940s reproduction garments from The Seamstress of Bloomsbury will give you that iconic "Claire look". There are also plenty of other Outlander inspired pieces to browse, from beautiful handknits to quirky handmade brooches and jewellery. 

About Me

"I am a vintage quine. I love all things vintage, and I am a quine. Quine is the word for woman or girl in the Scots language “Doric”, which originates from the north east of Scotland. I am a Doric quine, born and brought up in the granite city of Aberdeen, and we have a beautiful Doric language which I am truly proud of.

I have always been interested in things from the past whether it be the social history on how we used to live, or the stories from folk that have lived in a bygone time. I love the old black and white films, the sleek classic cars, the wonderful 40’s dance bands, the old buildings and the stylish fashions. For me, they have an exceptional quality and uniqueness. My philosophy for my obsessive hobby of collecting is that I am “rescuing “all these old things and giving them a “second chance “of a new home…. to be loved and used once more!

My vintage journey began properly in the late 1980’s where I owned my first vintage shop along with my Mum (the first vintage quine!) in Aberdeen’s Belmont Street and called it Brief Encounter, after the film of course. I didn’t expect after 30 years to be back on that same vintage path.  My work as a drama teacher and my love of performance art for many years has stood me in good stead for continuing to be creative. Creating Vintage Quine has given me the chance to be inspirational in a continued way. My shop is the Stage Set, my vintage pieces the Props, my background vintage music the Soundtrack, my vintage clothing the Costumes, my staff the Characters, my customers the Audience!

Come to my shop and browse in a wonderfully nostalgic unique setting and dare to be inspired - as I am being a Vintage Quine." - Lisa Irving, Owner, Vintage Quine
