About Us

Who are we?

Founded on Birmingham's famous Rag Market in 1983, Rowfers has witnessed many alternative changes over the years - New Romantic, Hippy, Punk, Goth, Rave, Modern Pagan, Grebo, Mod, Psychedelia....we've dabbled in and out of many styles and trends, but have always maintained our own unique identity.

Our customer base has always been as diverse as our stock with all welcome through our doors, plus we rather enjoy the ongoing debate regarding the pronunciation of our name! 

Happy to remain one of the few independents on high streets littered with chain stores and corporate multi-nationals, we pride ourselves on the quality and diversity of our stock, our attention to detail and the approachability of our staff. Primarily functioning on a retail store basis, we currently have two premises available to visit in the UK. These are located in Hanley - the city center of Stoke-on-Trent and on the Second Floor in Afflecks, (formerly Afflecks Palace) Manchester.

Within our shops we stock a mixed range of carefully sourced items - including bags, purses, wallets, hair colour, make-up, socks, scarves, hats, belts, incense, crafts and ornaments, costume jewellery, tights, hair accessories and more. Our Hanley store has the largest range of body jewellery and silver in Stoke-on-Trent - from ear and nose studs, to tunnels, tongue bars, industrial bars and septum jewellery.
