We've just started an Etsy page so we can sell some extra snazzy items on it from time to time. 


It's pretty sparse at the moment but feel free to give it a follow to keep track of anything we list. We are FlipAmericanVintage on there (or click the image)


It's with great sadness and a heavy heart for me to tell you all that my dad John Woods passed away on the 8th June 2019.


After setting up a shop called Frisco in the Handyside Arcade, John founded FLIP in Newcastle back in 1978 and he continued until 2011. He was also a great drummer who played with The Jody Grind, Bell and Arc, Jackson Heights, Vinegar Joe and The Junco Partners.


He loved to share his knowledge and passion for music and clothing (and everything in between) with everyone he met. 

A big man with an even bigger heart, he made such an impression on so many people and we'll all miss him very much.


I'm continuing his legacy as best I can. I really appreciate the kind words and love for my dad over the years from our many loyal customers. He was an absolute legend.

Thanks to everyone who's supported my dad and Flip over the past 40 years, it means the world. Nick.
