About Us – Hobo's Swansea

About Us


Hobo's Swansea is a vintage and retro store based in the heart of Swansea city centre. Born in 1992, we have strived to continue offering a range of vintage clothing, retro gifts, band merchandise and much more!

Although Hobo's is most commonly associated with a fine range of retro and vintage clothing, our website looks to offer products and a range of items from bands and musicians that helped to establish our aesthetic from the outset.

Hobo's has a rich history that extends further than just our shop, which includes helping further develop and progress the Swansea and South Wales music scene. From nights such as Barons Thursdays, Dub Club, Face Off, Funked Up, The Indie Thing, Yum Yum Club, Bubba Club, The Shakedown and many more. If you have been going out in Swansea from the mid 80's onward, then you are likely to have been to an event that we were involved in!

Although Hobo's is synonymous with vintage and retro clothing, this website aims to highlight some of our biggest bands and artists merchandise that were huge parts in helping us develop the Swansea night life, as well as iconic clothing styles, a selection of women's clothing and other items that we offer in store.
