Deadstock General Store, 46 Edge St, Manchester, M4 1HN – Visit Now
Deadstock is one of the Northern Quarter’s most charming shops. You’ve undoubtedly spotted that eye-catching frontage on Edge Street – it’s a well-photographed homage to classic design. And as you’d expect, inside you’ll find a carefully-curated range of stock, with a focus on quality gifts and vintage homeware.
Tapping into that space between nostalgia and smart modern aesthetics, stepping into Deadstock feels like stepping into a stylised version of the past, all beaten-up cabinets and creaky floorboards, displaying items that are both functional and beautiful.
Unique and stylish products and gifts, for those with a passion for well-designed items
It’s smack bang in the middle of Edge Street’s well-loved bars, restaurants and independent art stores, and a perfect match for its near-neighbours, providing products and services for the smart shoppers of Manchester’s most bohemian district. It’s all about unique and stylish products and gifts, for those with a passion for well-designed items.
And if you’re looking for a gift for the discerning modern individual, look no further. You can choose from tools and treatments for beards and moustaches, organic toiletries, beautifully-made socks, candles, and botanical paperweights, not to mention flasks and mugs. Want to see more?

An experience that offers a personal – and memorable – touch

This is how shopping should be done.
